as long as I gaze a waterloo sunset

dress: thrift, $4 -- shoes: BC Footwear, $40



Oh goodness! I still just can't seem to get my face and shoes to be sharp. This dress actually came with a little vest that matches the skirt, but I didn't feel like wearing it today.



Check out my super cool antique watch! I say antique because you have to wind it by hand, so I just assume it's old. Could be a holdover, though. Anyway, I scored it for $7 last year from this little antique shop run by a batty old lady.

I bought this dress back in August, and I've been waiting for a day cold enough to wear it! Today was that day :) I was especially motivated to wear it after watching Quadrophenia the other night. It's a movie from the seventies about Mod culture in 1964 London. I thought it was a boring movie about unsympathetic people, but the clothes and scooters were pretty cool. Also, a young Sting has a featured role. He's one intense-looking guy.

Creepy, right?

You have great street style. I really like your 50's vibe you have in this outfit. The shoes kind of look like a pair of Miu Miu's I saw recently.
