Black Tie Affair

This outfit is the product of rifling through the bottom of my drawers in an effort to give new life to items I rarely (or in this vest's case, never) wear. There's a pretty good reason for not wearing this mini tube dress, however, namely that it's SUPER mini, hence the (necessary) lace shorts underneath. It's funny, I distinctly remember the sales girls ever-so-subtly suggesting that I size up, but for some I was dead set on the skanky extra small.

This vest was recently in the pile to take to Crossroads, but I had a last-second change of heart and saved it from consignment. I'm glad I did, because I like how the back tie coordinates with these lace-up espadrilles.

I wore this outfit to the movies with my bestie to see Celeste and Jesse Forever, which i loved. Indie romantic comedy + smart writing and humor + Andy Samberg + passion project + likeable central character + great soundtrack = my idea of the perfect movie.

Dress: Motel, vest: Quicksilver Women, shorts: H&M, shoes: Ugg, purse: Forever 21.

    nearly anything done.
