…dress has a bit of a 20′s feel when unbelted. love it.

What I’m Wearing
* Vintage Purple Blazer …with black bow tie as a cincher …seen here and here {last summer} …note* husband is not a fan of the big blazers! lol …too 80′s for him.
* AKA NY little black dress …from gilt.com …seen here in berry
* Vintage skinny stretchy belt – which I wear with everything …and it’s so old that the gold is worn away which is rad because it works with gold tones and silver tones.
* Calvin Klein platform pumps …seen here …for sale here
* Ben Amun crystal earrings …seen here …from gilt.com
* Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses

* Hair …did the front french braid again but tied it at the nape/side of the neck and waved the ends with a curling iron. If you can’t tell, I’m LOVING THIS BRAID :)

    Ooh, yes, I too am loving that braid. This way, with the curly ends, is my fave :) And I swear, even tho I’m a dancer, your legs are hella more rockin’ than mine… my arms are all toned and cut from hip hop, why won’t my legs join the fun?? The fat there is SO stubborn!!
