billions and billions



I wore this to go see my boyfriend guest drum for our friends' band Unicyle Loves You (CLICK THROUGH AND WATCH THE VIDEO, SERIOUSLY) at Schuba's Tavern. I'm feeling more Proenza inspiration, obviously. I think the Fall 2010 collection sunk into my consciousness a lot more than I had originally given it credit for. The dress is from Urban Outfitters, and I got it for way cheap when the sale items went on sale.


Originally, the plan was to wear the dress with my creepers, but that felt a bit too obvious. So I wore the dress with my still-fairly-obvious-but-not-quite-as-obvious thrifted heeled oxfords.


The print on the dress is so artfully inelegant.

And because I'm all about realism, here's the pragmatic autumn version. This jacket was also purchased at Urban, also on sale. I really enjoy being able to play with the hemlines via the zippered panels. I wore it partially undone to let a bit more of the glorious print peek through. I also threw on my harness to create further disjointed, dangly bits. Also, I should have ironed the jacket before I took these photos, but whatever. I spent all night at a sold-out rock show, my clothes aren't going to look perfect afterwards! I wear my clothes in every practical sense of the word.

Love this dress! I'm mad at myself for not getting anything from urban's sale sale, but it looks like you cleaned up.

Those glasses are great. I like the hole in your stocking too - it kind of undoes a very done-up look.
