What I Wore Today

I love this print.  It’s like the electrons are zinging all over my dress and hitting my shiny bracelet.

Jacket

On the way home from our fabulous weekend in Davis, we stopped at the Savers in Vacaville and I found this Armani jacket for $17.  Most of what I wear everyday is pretty cheaply made, so it was such a difference how substantial it felt.  I love the shade of blue and the shoulders.

Jacket: Armani Collezioni from Savers; Pants: hottopic.com; Blouse: Strawberry; Pumps: San Bruno Goodwill; Bag: coach.com; Belt: Gap, 23 years ago; Earrings: Walgreen’s; Sunglasses: F21.

I believe in birthday tiaras.

Tiara: Party Heaven; Dress: vintage 80’s, from some people selling stuff on the corner of 22nd & Valencia; Sunglasses: Aldo Accessories; Boots: a boutique in Marblehead, MA in 1992; Earrings: Macy’s; Bracelets: Tilly’s, Tee: Charlotte Russe.

We wore matching outfits to the State Fair.

It just seemed appropriate.  

Dress: souvenir store in Waikiki; Creepers: somewhere on amazon; Purse: coachfactory.com; Necklace: Hot Topic; Sunglasses: modcloth.com; Bracelet: F21; Earrings: Kohl’s.

Pucci/Jester

I’ve always liked the court jester motif, and then if you mix that with a Pucci aesthetic, it’s perf.

Dress: dillards.com; Shoes: Dillard’s; Earrings: from Kitty; Sunglasses: F21.

Two Hearts

I know this is a questionable dress—it’s got those weird white spaces, that Ed Hardy vibe, maybe it’s actually a swimsuit coverup?—but there’s something really compelling about it for me.  The bright colors for one, the placement of the heart over my internal organs, the red sparkles over the heart which give it some kind of blood-of-Christ allusion. (Here’s a closer picture, from the last time I wore it three years ago.)

Dress: store in my neighborhood; Fishnets (with black tights underneath), shoes and sunglasses: Hot Topic; Heart pendant: JCP; Three other necklaces: thrifted and gifted; Plastic bangles: F21; Gem bracelet: Kohl’s; Earrings: ABC Trading Co.

Disco Bingo

Four years ago my friend Katie suggested family camp to me, and the thing that got me there (because it certainly wasn’t the camping aspect) was  Disco Bingo Night.

I love that my friend Alice and I were twins!  We didn’t plan it.

Jumpsuit: vintage 70’s from Mars on Telegraph; Shoes: BeBe from the Excelsior Goodwill; Cuff and Choker: from Becky; Wig: Hot Topic; Sunglasses: somewhere in the 90’s.
