A very special dress

Before I embarked on the shoe challenge (which began today) I wanted to wear this vintage Carolina Herrera dress that came in the mail this week with my Balenciaga ankle boots-photographed in front of the wreckage of my sisters bathroom (installing new counters)


This dress makes me feel like a princess!

  42. Dresses that you wear to graduation. If you have any links to places with nice dress, that would be very helpful. Its for a middle school graduation!

    Believe it or not, the correct answer to every question is A, B, and C — even that Saturday afternoon snooze! According to the growing “Stealth Health” movement, sneaking healthy habits into our daily living is easier than we think.

  44. Thank you so much Tim. I really do appreciate your feedback. I’m still struggling with the technology but I wish everyone all luck with this competition. I’ve been pinned down with a sick grandchild and today a very sick daughter – both with gastric flu which afflicts us all at this time of year – so this is the first moment I’ve had to get to the computer.

  45. Wow! I just loved your creativity and wish I could have a work like yours. :D I just loooove shoes, like you.

  46. I think, this theme is quite actual now. Gorgeous. And props for such a cool photo. Looks so much more stunning than photo shoot shots I’ve seen in fashion mags these days.

  47. Tuxedos says:

    It’s upsetting that I can’t see the image on the blog. Is there something wrong with your blog? I am very much eager to see the dress. Thanks!

  48. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh my god oh my god i almost died! the dress fits you like a dream! love the contrast of hard and soft with the flowers and shoes..GOOD LUCK
