Happy Friday! Yes, yes, yes. Friday is casual day at my office, which usually means jeans, but I was feeling a dress today. Something casual, but still fun. In my quest for a cute outfit (quest meaning: “I’m running late, what is the first non-ugly thing in my line of sight?”) I remembered this dress, one of my summer favorites.
At first I thought pairing it with black was kind of funny, but the dark color in the fabric is actually black, so it works. I threw in a little brown though, just to soften it up a bit. This dress also gives me an excuse to wear my new Swedish Hasbeens before the snow falls (ugh, it is coming), so yay.
Velvet blazer: Susana Monaco
Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
Bag: Vintage Donney & Bourke
Scarf: Some crappy “pashmina” purchased in NY’s Chinatown my freshman year of college (I still wear this thing all the time)
This weekend I need to buy a few more things for my Halloween costume. I’m going as a 1990′s era raver – should be pretty awesome. I’ve already bought out the glow stick / neon hair sections at the Dollar Store, now I just need a few more things. This costume is also giving me the opportunity to wear bright pink fishnets. Yes. Here is my inspiration. Classy, I know.
