Show a Little Leg


Blogger meetup at One Lounge! Julia (Shop Janka), Allie (Wardrobe Oxygen), and Sam.
Sara (highfashion4less) and Rosa (Rosa Loves DC). Had so much fun chatting with these lovely ladies! 
I split a deliciously messy pizza with Chloe Thompson, Assistant Editor of Washington Flyer Magazine
Finally got a chance to meet Oby (Heart, Print, and Style) in person-- we've been following eachother for a while now!--Amanda (miskabelle vintage), and Moni (Frock Yeah <-- Love the name of her blog)
Amanda and I modeling our bright vintage dresses-- as soon as she walked in I knew it was fate! She has a great Etsy store as well-- check it out here.

Dress- Vintage, Necklace- Charlotte Russe, Belt- Forever21, Platforms- Jessica Simpson

I thought about shortening this dress but decided I liked the dramatic look of undoing a couple of buttons in the front (makes me wish I could dance flamenco!).  Note to self-- never wear long thigh slit dresses on a breezy day-- that gust of wind coming off of the Metro escalator made for a Marylin Monroe 7-Year Itch moment!

I entered my quickie DIY dress from a couple of days ago in the DC Goodwill Fashionista contest. Winner gets a $50 gift certificate (and we all know that $50 goes a looong way at Goodwill!)  Vote for me by clicking here and "liking" the photo :)  

Have a lovely holiday weekend!

  18. wow what a dress, so perfect. it is hard to wear a maxi dress like that. because sometimes you get lost in the dress. but are wearing this dress with a lot of flair. the belt and the necklace look gorgeous with the red color and it really accentuates your waist

  19. Besides the fact that I'm currently obsessed with maxi skirts, I love the contrast of your bright blue necklace with the red dress!
