shimmer

(american apparel sheer mesh longsleeve, CHREE dress gift from christine rhee, ann demeulemeester boots, red leather pendant gift from zana)

Wore this last week to Shimmer, which is a monthly shoegaze night at Late Bar hosted by the always-inspiring Scary Lady Sarah. Usually I wear something ultra dreamy to Shimmer but the urge hit me to wear something a bit more Puritan. This outfit would be SO perfect with the white scalloped Louis Vuitton collar that I've been dreaming of...

  

Scary Lady Sarah and Philly Peroxide always manage to dig up the most obscure shoegaze bands and expose them to a wider audience at this party. At Shimmer I always hear a song by an artist I've never heard of before and this time it was The Stargazer Lilies. Their brand of shoegaze is decidedly among the more disorienting, spacey variety...music for astral projections and swimming through poppy fields. RIYL All Natural Lemon & Lime Flavors or SIANspheric.


Pretty sure I need to start taking style cues from Shimmer's decorations...


Late Bar's projector is perfect for shoegazey self-portraits. I JUST WANT TO FEEL ETHEREAL.

love longer dresses...i'm so happy that they are "in style" now (not like i wouldn't wear something because it isn't in style, but whatever). Also, have you seen the DIY at honestly WTF for the scalloped peter pan collar? You should doooo ittttt

I really like the dress and that AA mesh shirt, I have one.. man, they are SO handy. Also the small leather red cross from Zana, love it. It adds a lot to the outfit, despite how small it is.
