Hurry Up Harry



So while I was away for the weekend, chilling with my parents and getting weirded out by this unseasonable summery weather, I managed to get out of the house for a mandatory small-town thrift binge. I managed two totally solid finds.

I feel like Anne Frank (but not really, because that's kind of offensive) with these wispy pigtails, Hebrew charm necklace and 1980s lace collar dress that is totally pretending its from the 1940s. The dress is long, fancy, perfect and reminds me of the Winona Ryder dress that Sunshine was kind enough to gift me earlier this year.
Also, Look at these boots! Not only are they the pentultimate 1990s boots with their square toe and chunky heel, they are also snakeskin! SNAKE SKIN. Not the actual skin of a snake, but a real snakeskin print. Can you dig it?

Every time I see a black dress with white collar, all I can think about is early 90's and riot grrls :) When I was 14, I asked if my aunt could help me to sew that kind of dress too, and she did and I still have it :)

So, it' s been a while since i've visited your blog but it feels nice to know that we are almost like real life best friends: Even though we haven't spoken in months, I come back to your blog and it's as if time was never lost!

You still look as quirky as EVER! I love that dress on you, it's very Wednesday Adams and I don't know anyone who could pull it off better than you! xoxo

Sadly I don't think I can dig the shoes, but I am happy for you. The dress is another story. Amazing collar.

Well, for me the "bump toe" is the true test of total 90sosity (also known as, "fabulousness").

The square toe is just a bit too--square. I was obsessed with the bump. It's rounded, but it's square, but it's rounded, but it's square. And shiny!

Bump toes are the foot equivalent of the android eyes on the face. Totally wigs me out, in the best way.

a-line dress
pointy lace collar (HOLY SHIT)
square-toed boots
hair
verdict? A+++

I really dislike to be a stickler when it comes to these linguistic sorts of things (especially since I love your blog and still visit it frequently!) but..."penultimate" means "second to last," which doesn't work in the context you're using it in. I'm sorry! Just one of those "I hate to do this but I have some sick compulsion to" situations that everybody inevitably encounters in their lives. In this case, my sick compulsion to point out linguistic errors pours forth uncontrollably in the most irrelevant situations.

Okay, okay, I'm done. Keep up the super outfits.

That dress is so amazing, I need to find one like that. It reminds me of Courtney Love's dress in the Miss World video.

Sunshine said...

that collar is so pretty! my mom says she has a beautiful handmade lace collar for me, so I'll need to make a dress for it. I'm thinking a red wool 60s shift will be a nice change.
