So happy with this pattern mix! I like this much better than when I wear a plain navy jacket. But it was kind of cute with black last time I wore it.

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.)

Right now, I’m actually very dusty and not so glamourous (except for yesterday’s Disco Bingo post), so here’s something I wore back in April on my last vacation, when I was heavy into 70’s jetset.

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.

Have I mentioned that my last name is Paris? So I kind of had to get this dress.
