Date Dress

as a treat for surviving shows at the Mart i allow myself to get a piece from the showroom and it usually ends up being a dress. in between the International Gift and Apparel show (happening now) our Spring supplement started rolling in and when the girls saw the crochet collared polka dot number pictured below they just knew i would be snatching it up-and they were RIGHT!
they called it the “jess dress” for a reason as it’s “sooooo me”- haha!  from the time of purchase i had a particular occasion in mind for the “jess dress” which was a brunch date with a cute boy that ended up turning into a brunch + museum date this past Saturday.

i must say: the dress and the date were fabulous!

outfit details:
 jacket: Urban Outfitters brand (super old!) sunnies: Oakley, boots: vintage, purse: Eliot Lucca

if you’re around the Atlanta area and want something interesting and educational to do this weekend i suggest the Michael C. Carlos museum on Emory’s campus! the exhibits include ancient Roman art, ancient Greek art and an Egyptian exhibit with mummies! also for a limited time they have a whole floor of mandala art, though we were super rushed through this section it was very interesting and so intricate!

happy Friday!


picked up this neon cutie at the HOBO showroom in the mart downtown. during certain shows they sell the samples from previous seasons so i got this guy at a good price. though it looks small in stature it actually holds quite a bit, but what really had me was the BRIGHT color!
today the BF and i are celebrating his 25th birthday, have a good Tuesday!

as mentioned in previous post, i’ve gone big with a new hair style, ie-cut it all off .!. BUT i wanted to hold out showing everyone until the NYE photos are done and posted over on so here is a mini peak of my hair,
top: vintage via EBV, scarf: no brand, made in India, jacket: vintage, bag: vintage Jordache, Sunglasses: Chloe
Yup, mystery still remains, heheh!
but more importantly about these photos is the jacket and purse, both of which had me all smiles when they were found! the vintage Jordache purse made it into my hands by total chance as i was bidding on an exact same, slightly bigger Diane Von Furstenberg bag weeks ago on Ebay. after not winning the bag i was hell-bent-and-determined to find a look alike, no luck on Ebay OR Etsy so i pretty much gave up and moved on…then while shopping at Highland Row Antiques for some Christmas ornaments for the vino party found my perfect match, and for a mere $15.00! done deal! been carrying every since.
the jacket wasn’t quite as thrilling but i was pumped the moment i put it on, even Kareem pointed out the HUGE smile on my face at Rag-O-Rama when i traded for this $12.00 beauty. i am a little sad these photos don’t show the built-in belt and synching details but they are soon to follow, this jacket is going no where!
have a nice Saturday everyone

out with the old, in with the NEW YEAR!

and yet another Flashback moment here, with an outfit i wore right as the weather was starting to get cold. friends and i walked to Little Five Points for some froYO and shopping times, for the adventure i brought along a very unique bag that was a gift from my sweet boyfriend. its literally a portable stereo ((or should i say portable PARTY!)) with speakers and an audio jack that my ipod plugs right into. i must admit it’s an attention grabber whether jamming out on bike or on foot, it can get real loud and people def notice!
bag: made by Fydelity
top: H&M
vest: Flying Tomatoes
skirt: Target
socks: Eddie Bauer
boots: Dolce Vita for Target
buttons: Kentuck Arts Festival
shades: borrowed from BF, by A.Mall
