SWALLOWS







Picked up this dress for an unbelievable $10. Can you believe it?! I literally threw on this ensemble and as I looked in the mirror, "prissy church-girl" instantly came to mind! I am currently reading The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides and I cannot help but to feel like a modern day Lisbon girl due to the lace pilgrim collar and full skirt sillouhette. This denim jacket by GUESS has been sitting in my wardrobe for god knows how long. I forgot how flattering the cropped fit was and how it didn't look like one of those denim jackets that got shrunk in the wash by mistake. The sheer pink striped socks are from Sportsgirl and are very Alexa Chung once again teaming them up with my crotcheted brogues. I haven't watched Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides as of yet (yes, how could of I not?!?) and instead have decided to read the book first, then watch the movie as an honest film critic would do. It's a Sofia Coppola film.. you think it's mandatory that you have too hehe. When I finally do, Somewhere will be next in line.

3 more days till Saturday! But who's counting? - Come follow me on Twitter here ♥♥






Wearing: printed swallows dress ($10 store), cropped denim jacket (GUESS?), sheer socks (Sportsgirl), crocheted brogues (Sportsgirl), box bag (Forever New)

  10. You always look so incredible! I've been showing your blog to my friends and we all love it! I bought those Sportsgirl socks as well, in black but they make my feet look like they're in a prison or something...I should have gone with the pink like you. I love your photos...they'd look at home in a magazine x x x
