rock ballad







Outfit Details:
hat - Gap
leather jacket - c/o Coach (old)
Rumi dress in broken glass print - borrowed from Rebecca Minkoff
DVF Opal platforms - c/o DVF
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac - c/o Rebecca Minkoff
bracelets - vintage and Carol Marie bangle
vintage belt - Brooklyn Flea
glasses - Ray-Ban
lipstick - MAC Pro Longwear Lip Creme Unlimited

I borrowed this dress from Rebecca Minkoff for my trip to LA. I originally intended to wear it to the People's Choice Awards, but ended up wearing it in the CVS Beauty Club segment, instead, and didn't get a chance to photograph it. I took advantage of one of those strangely mild winter days in New York and recreated the outfit (yeah, I'm lame like that but also okay with it). Only, I realized that there's a reason I don't go bare legged in winter, and it isn't just because it's cold. It's because winter legs are horribly unattractive - dry, blotchy and a different kind of pale. But still, I love this dress and feel a little more confident in it than usual. It's just one of those dresses. Or maybe it's the fact that it blows in the breeze and makes every entrance look like it could be part of an 80s rock ballad video. Yeah, that's probably (definitely) it.

  12. ive always wanted to wear a dress like this - short in the front, long in the back - is there a name for that? dont worry, your legs are gorgeous - I have wintery pale blotchy legs all year long :)

  13. though her legs felt leaden, dark, blocks of metal waiting to be sculpted and shaped into something new, the fabric blew, moved in quick swaths like some ephemeral scythe, gleaning fragments of light from the sun.

  18. The dress is certainly beautiful. The ice blue handbag is a nice colorful diversion from the dress and the leather jacket. Love the sandals as well. Oh, and the hat is cool too! :)

  37. I love that dress. It is gorgeous and the hemline makes it stunning.
    You are certainly a lot braver than I to go out in winter barelegged. I shiver at the slightest breeze and usually wear a couple layers of tights.

  38. You look gorgoeus! I love that you paired light dress with a "tough"leather jacket!

  39. This dress is everything I could want in a dress - high low hemline, gorgeous fabric, and transitions from cold weather to warm weather with the right accessories!

    Do you reallllly have to give it back to Rebecca Minkoff? I think you should keep it :)
