If You Leave, Don’t Look Back


green and white check vintage shirtdress with marc jacobs shoes and louis vuitton bag

What I’m Wearing
* Vintage green and white diamond check print shirt dress …which I scored for a few bucks at a garage sale across the street about a month ago.
* Vintage gold necklace with pearls & D&G gold watch. I couldn’t deal w/any more accessories.
* Gucci classic stripe large round cat eye sunglasses.
* Marc by Marc Jacobs gold-heeled pumps …last seen here
* Louis Vuitton damier azur Noe bucket bag
* Pink lips: Mary Kay® Tinted Lip Balm in Peony

* Title: lyrics/title from OMD “If You Leave” …but better known from Pretty in Pink. Wow, referencing Pretty in Pink AGAIN! {my favorite of the 80′s Brat Pack movies …most probably because Molly DIY’s her prom dress at the end ;} but the styling was epic in this movie.

I started a DIY yesterday …one that I’m actually really ridiculously excited about. But it’s painstakingly-mind-numbingly-finger-bleedingly-frustratingly taking me forever. I worked most of Sunday on it and am finally about half way through. I’ve had to make a trip back to the fabric store not once but TWICE because I ran out of materials in the process {I hate that}. My original plan was to post it Tuesday but I’m not sure I’ll be finished in time. And yes I could just wait to finish it Wednesday and post it on Thursday but once I have an idea in my head, I HAVE to do it. And once I start a project, I HAVE to finish it …no matter how long it takes or how bloody my fingers get. It’s how my brain functions. And yes, my husband thinks I’m insane because of it. ;)

    You were right, between the watch and the heels was enough gold to make it perfect :)
