(meadham kirchhoff for topshop dress (ebay), rodarte for opening ceremony cardigan, zana bayne harness, old shredded tights, even older UO boots)
Wow, I look completely asleep in this photo, which is surprisingly because this photo was taken on the one day when I was actually "running errands" and "taking care of business". In fact, I was so awake that I decided to wear my sparkliest dress around Wicker Park. It's an impeccable study of melting sequins and decaying hemlines and nonchalant sheerness; this dress looks like the zombie corpse of a disco ball. It attracts stares and glances like nothing else in my closet. Indeed, it's a prime example of how getting dressed each day is my biggest weapon against my social anxiety - when my outfit makes me happy, I can't help but shrug off any awkward looks I receive on the street. This is me, and I'm not apologizing for it anymore!
In my opinion this dress is best worn with my Rodarte for Opening Ceremony carpet cardigan and boots that are too old to function as boots...
Detailing so exquisite it could make you cry.
