wear it more

Dress: Vintage. Boots: Emma Cook. Fur jacket: Vintage/Thrift. Bag: Thrift (DIY studded). Black shawl: Thrift. Snake ring: East village boutique. Nail polish: Dollar by Rococo.
The jacket ended up being removed since it was so damn warm today in New York. Isn’t it December soon? What’s up with the mild weather?
I don’t wear this dress often enough and really need to. I got it at a vintage shop in the Lower East Side (same place that I got the coin necklace posted here). It’s actually a swingy A-line-ish shape but I prefer it worn belted.
The stud belt is too big to be worn at the waist so I did a twist knot thingy to make it stay. I need to find a stud belt that’s meant for the waist to wear over loads of dresses. Speaking of dresses, I just noticed that asos.com has a ton of gorge ones right now here and I’m staring at a few of them for abnormally long lengths of time I think :-/

    I love vintage tops and dresses like the one you wore, but I hate hate hate that they’re all made of polyester. The most useless fabric ever created.

    Just gorgeous. I think this too big belt make it look interesting.
    You really have a great sense for shoes and mix of different kinds of clothes.

    You studded the bag by yourself, didnt you? So maybe you could tell me where those studs are from?

  24. Grace says:

    Very inventive way to make that belt work. And your ring! My god, do I want it.

    Love Grace.

    oh, Karen, I forgot to ask, what about that competition that you took part in recently? Where we were asked to vote? I haven’t seen the results, any luck?

    Anon 1 – I cannot believe your up at the crack of dawn for my post updates? OMG!!!

    Francheska – holy shit. I already answered on your blog. What a thing to say…. seriously. ps. the hair was done day before. Close enough ; )

    Sybil – No it wasn’t.

    Anon 2 – I got an email from them saying that I didn’t win : ( I was apparently really close to the winner but didn’t get enough votes to push me over the top.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I so love this dress and will definitely wear it more often!
