lady in white.

Ok I lied - I wasn't supposed to post again until I was in Japan, but since I'm still working for a few more days - I decided to share another look. =)

I got this dress from a vintage store in the famous Harajuku district in Tokyo. I LOVE shopping for dresses at vintage shops because most likely you won't run into someone with the same dress! If I remember correctly, I paid about $25 for it. I tied a blue satin ribbon at the waist to cover the waist line and to give it an extra touch. This morning I tried wearing a plum colored thick belt, but felt as though it was too much so I went for the blue satin ribbon instead. I wore my blue wedges that I found at Charlotte Russe earlier this year for about $20.
After work today, some of my girlfriends are getting together for a 'goodbye' dinner for me - it's going to be sad, but at least I know I'll see them again soon!
