I popped into Buttons & Bows a couple weeks back and picked up this polka dotted number. It’s easily become one of my favorite dresses and I’m sure it’ll be a staple in my summer wardrobe. In other news, I’ve been earnestly trying to break in my hi-topperoos by kicking, scuffing and general dirt stomping.
Was out and about last weekend when Moustache Man spotted this killer alley. You’ll know how much I like to hide out in alleys.
Been feeling my Chucks lately, so I picked up a pair of high tops at the Converse Outlet. My latest project is scouring Ebay for vintage dresses to wear with them. Afterall, how else am I going to break these guys in?

Ever since Peter Jensen made his tulle front dress, I’ve been interested in silhouettes that play with layered texture. The strand dress has a pleated front panel that layers over a strapless power mesh slip. Adding the cincher belt gives some shape, but allows the pleats to move freely. Knotted belts look cool, but can be fussy (you need a good vintage belt that’s soft enough to loop and stay), so I made it fully fashioned, with a metal hook to fasten at center back.
