re-debut



i think it's safe to say the this week has been the official worst week ever. i've worked an ungodly amount of hours in the office and my brain is literally mush as a result. but moreover, i've also officially sucked at posting lately. but i'm not going to apologize this time (cause really, what good does that do anybody?). it has been a good long time though and i've missed it. i'm re-entering posting-ville(?) will a vengeance with one of my fave new items in the big wide world. i was lucky enough to work on a fashion story in the new ish of BUST (hits stands in mid july) and include some of the ultimate aces (some of my faves and yours) at this whole style blogging community and my excitement levels hit all time highs!!! but more on that later when the issue comes out, but long story short...i used this AMAZING yellow dress from Tulle, and tada, they let me keep it!! Scoooooooore! Plus, we all know that everything that miss super awesome amazing effie puts on her tiny body is nothing short of perfection, and simply was aching for a pair of brown oxfords like her beloved pair. After a not-so-successful run at scoring some on ebay (the pair i got was just a size too small and i sold them at the brooklyn flea market last sunday), i elected to order these that i saw at UO. we all share the same hatred for over-priced, mass-produced UO merchandise, but in this case if it's wrong, i don't want to be right because i'm simply in love with these shoes. the handbag is vintage and will go up in the store as soon as i get my act together and make that happen...soon, soon, promise! but in the meantime, i had a hard time letting it sit and collect dust.
p.s. i took my cue from miss sally jane and worked some photoshop magic on this pic, doesn't everything look better vintage?
