FeeLuxury dress, Steve Madden heels [similar], Anteprima bag (only available in Japan and Guam), Michael Kors watch, Mimi Boutique bracelets
This dress is stunning, just like the last one I wore from FeeLuxury (which is owned by Sheinside). Unfortunately, after wearing it once, the zipper on the back stopped working. I am so sad! You probably cannot tell, but the brocade layer is partly sheer and tops the blue (almost metallic shine) dress beneath. I actually think this may be the first item in my closet with brocade on it, and what I think is amazing (full history lesson) is that it dates back to the Middle Ages when only nobility wore it. One of the countries it was very popular in was a place called Byzantium. Actually I read a book when I was much younger called Anna of Byzantium, and I really loved the atmosphere and how the style of dressing was described.
Today I am actually going to a concert in SF! I am not a big concert person (large crowds and lots of standing) but I think it is going to be great. My sister Irene actually was the one who suggested going, perhaps those of you in the bay have heard of Alice's Now and Zen Annual 'Fest? Well anyways I'll be shooting my look while there so if you're in town look for a girl in camo pants! xoxo
