(vintage 60's maxi dress altered, forever 21 leopard wedge & necklace, uo straw hat)




I'm off to NYC but wanted to post quickly before heading to the airport.  I found this dress at the thrift shop last night and I'm absolutely smitten. Crochet, maxi, noir, AMAZING.  I feel like I should be attending a goth wedding. On to the shoes, die die die right?  I saw these babies on the Forever 21 website and knew they must be mine. I had been lusting after the JC pair for months but have yet to muster the necessary funds.  Finally I have my own pair of leopard wedges and I just might never take them off! 


When I found this dress it was very matronly and gloomy.  I decided to cut the lining out and add my own slip to lighten it up a bit, the intricate lace detailing becomes even more apparent with this DIY and  (I think ) adds a flair of youth to the over all ensemble.
