nautical and leather












DRESS / f21; BOOTS / vintage; PURSE / vintage; SCARF / vintage ysl; HOSIERY / secret; NECKLACE / f21; BRACELETS / f21, vintage; RINGS / f21, vintage, peoples; SUNNIES / d&g

i am a sucker for anything striped and nautical so when i saw this shift dress for $11 at forever 21 i jumped on it - i probably would have bought it in any color if i saw them!

so remember when i said that 'wearing vintage shoes is not my cup of tea'? k well i totally retract that statement - i found these lovely booties at a goodwill up north and i couldn't set them down; they were the perfect size, real leather, and exactly what i've been looking for - not to mention the price was even better!!!

i wanted to toughen up the dress so i did so through black hosiery and combat boots; of course i had oodles and caboodles of jewels on.

how beautiful is this view??
