mosaic

Dress: Gypsy Nation Vintage.  Boots: Jeffrey Campbell. Bag: Vintage DIY studded. Gold aviators: Ray Ban. Large ring: ManiaMania
Took these pics yesterday close to Lincoln Center. 
The dress is a bit of an optical illusion: it looks like a sheath of beading or tiny mosaic-like tiles, but it’s just an effect created by the raised texture on the fabric.  I thought it was going to weigh a ton when I saw it on the hanger, but it’s extremely light.   Later that day, the belt came off and the dress hung like an off shoulder kaftan – very flowy.  
I know Litas are the most seen boots ever online, but I wanted something comfortable with height and these are slippers with heels attached. 
PS.  Hope to see some of you tomorrow night at Topshop on Broadway at 6!  Come for a drink and say hellooooo!

    I hear what you’re saying about the Litas, but you rock them much better than most! Also, I’ve been saying I need a trip to New York. I haven’t been in over a year. I must go, so I can hit up Gypsy Nation. Everything you’ve shared from there is awesome!

    It’s good to see you wearing bold prints, colour and vintage again I have missed your old style, it was so different to all the other bloggers out there. Keep it up.

    This outfit is head to toe PERFECTION!

    I’m fairly picky about prints and this one is gorgeous. Timeless. The combination of dress, shoes, purse, and even hair is spot on. Beautiful color combo too.

    Nice!
