fashion kismet

vintage dress/scarf – mo vintage on etsy, vintage necklace – dear golden vintage, boots – madewell

i could kiss merl kinzie for finding this lovely vintage dress and selling it in her shop.  and then kiss myself for snatching it up before anyone else did.
as much as i had.to.have.it…the beauty you see above, hung in my closet for months…with the intention of being hemmed before wearing.
but last friday morning, i said “to hell with hemming it!” and i slipped it on.  then the boots, then the gorgeous vintage necklace from dear golden vintage.  (lauren, i don’t know you well enough to kiss you, so you’re in the clear.)
…it all came together so perfectly (lots of compliments at work) and i felt so…young ali macgraw.  can’t you see her wearing this?
it was fashion kismet. (did i just make that up?  fashion kismet? that’s a good blog name.)

turns out…pretending to be someone else, makes taking pictures of myself with a tripod in my side yard for all my neighbors to see and then posting the photos on the internet…okay.

  4. Girl, you may be the only person I have ever seen rocking the headband without looking chronicles of riddick – instead you just look effortlessly fab. This dress is lovely and I’m glad you finally broke it out of the to-alter pile, I’ve let far too many gems languish there myself and this one is already a winner as-is. :)
