gettin' lucky.


sequin dress: vintage via ebay, boots: steven by steve madden

so i saw this stunner on ebay a few weeks ago... and HAD to have it.. although i was a bit worried about pulling it off and the german sizing, etc.. which i got more nervous after nobody bid against me.. and with my last 2 ebay finds.. the jumpsuit.. to the romper being quite fantastic.. could i get lucky for a third time?
but a week later once it came in.. and i pulled it out of the box.. still hesitation.. but once i slipped it on. it won me over. now i just have to wait til our fall/winter to wear it out...

and sorry for being so blog lazy lately :)

oh and check out our feature on fashion jinx!

  55. My computer was being slow and as the picture was downloading and the dress slowly appearing, I cried a little with envy.
    I know everyone will say that it's so balmain but it's from before balmain so that makes it infinitely cooler.

  63. wow, you really look great in this picture. I like the boots but I do love the dress. Can't help admiring it. The design is so unique and I sure want to find something that resemble even just a little bit of that dress.
