tartan kilt

Photobucket

Inspired by
Photobucket
dress: vintage Maggy London, shoes: MK, sunglasses: RayBan wayfarers

NEW THIS WEEK:

1. My first video-log! I decided to mess around with my HP touchscreen computer (my other love besides fashion is definitely technology) and made a little preview video of what I'll be selling in my store this month.

2. I saw Karate Kid this week and if your into martial arts you will love it. I took Karate lessens as a little kid but unfortunately didn't go through with it...something about being the only girl there made me want to quit.

3. I found the perfect vintage necklace and gold bangle yesterday. I have a weakness for shiny things..

4. I know this tartan kilt print is a little heavy for summer but it's actually 100% silk and feels like I have nothing on. 4 buttons and a little snap...the perfect wrap dress that pays an ode to the great Alexander McQueen.


(sorry had to take the video down due to hosting problems will try again later)

This is brilliant hun!! Seriously genius! I was actually thinking about taking a plaid the other day and making it a skirt - high five dvrling!

Where'd you even find that piece?

Really great dress! I think the fact that it has this "heavy print" is what makes it stand out in a crowd!
