this is not a dress


H&M lace corset top + chiffon skirt, vintage shoes

Nope, not a dress! I bought these two peachy keen pieces at different times and H&M locations but it seems like they were just meant for each other. I have this skirt in navy as well and am currently on the lookout for a cute white tube top to pair it with! Oh god, I am so ready for summer. I'm planning on living in floral rompers, light bleached jeans, and loose white tops. And a bunch of other things I can't picture at the moment because the only things I can think of are finishing this paper and frozen yogurt from the Yogurtland that just opened. And the shrimp burrito from cactus that I will be eating in approximately eight hours. And the sandwich from Ike's that I will be eating in two days. Not going to lie, I spend way more money on food than I do on clothes.

(Oops, food tangent. Two more outfit shots instead of my tired face because the first two don't do the skirt justice.)

OMG, your calves in that one pictures are amazing. how do you stay so thin? do you work out a lot? you are gorgeous! How tall are you?

You really look stunning in that, before I read I also thought it was a dress. With your height you can pull of clothes like that so well!! :) My sister doesn't have a blog but she enjoys your tumblr & blog VERY MUCH. Just thought I let you know... ;)

ps. love your blog name; i am a huge interpol fan, and "precipitate" is probably my favorite song of theirs.

patchesofsunshine said...

Beautiful skirt! That colour is amazing.

alice said...

You look gorgeous!

Alice said...

okay, i'll start off by saying WOW you look amazing in cream/peach.

second, i would like to say that putting these two items of clothing = genius.

and lastly - by far the most depressing - is that WE BOTH HAVE THE SAME SKIRT BUT MINE GOES BASICALLY DOWN TO MY ANKLES! so embarrassing, and really depressing. man, you're tall! or i guess i'm just short. poo.

oh, and just to throw it in there: you have great great hair. but you've already been told that i'm sure!

Ashley said...

What a beautiful outfit! The light in the photo makes it look so ethereal. Love your hair, too!
