What I wore today: 11.24.11
I am always in the Thanksgiving spirit because…well…I love to eat. I was off to visit my family in Philly and I was excited to see them. I was especially excited to bust out a dress I bought at a thrift store in California that has been sitting in my closet awaiting the perfect occasion. I knew this would be the perfect day for a perfect dress. The dress is wool so it was warm enough for the weather and the print just screamed fall. I love crazy prints, they don’t bother me at all. I especially love this one because it reminds me of something Anna Sui would put together and I love her stuff. I love that this dress is long and fitted and that it has cute peasant sleeves and a tie around the neck. It kinda has a Victorian feel to it. I wore it with a black on black skinny studded belt, my Betsey Johnson velvet-black purse, my Steve Madden wedges, and some vintage jewelry. I like to mix up different styles of jewelry so I wore my vintage Avon cameo ring on one hand and another regal ring on the other. I also wore Milagros heart earrings with crosses in them that I snagged at Billy’s Antiques. The dress is wool so it is already warm for this time of year but I threw on my fur stole just incase the weather drops. See more details and photos of my day inside!The pattern on this dress is what appealed to me the most when I saw it on the rack. I love when I find things that are unique and they happen to be my size.
This is what it looks like with the fur stole 🙂For my makeup I stuck to burgundy, purples, and dark oranges. I also wore my Stila red lip liquid color and Mac “Pinch me” blush.Accessories!After an awesome day of seeing my family and eating everything in sight, I was ready to go home. I have my vintage leopard suitcase and my Thomas Wylde bag with me because I spent a few days at my parents place.lol my sister and I in the lobby of my mother’s building. I was so tired.I don’t really mind the leopard pattern with my dress, It is kinda fitting for my personality lol.
