Party on the Side

Topshop dress_FP sleeves_Vintage boots3Topshop dress. Free People fishnet sleeves. Vintage Justin Roper boots

Here’s my semi-scandalous Topshop cut-out dress.  Again, I never expose much skin unless I’m wearing a mini-skirt, so this is foreign territory for me.  I decided to go the more casual route by throwing on my vintage Justin Roper boots.  I so plan on getting another pair when I go back to the flea market.  To balance out the side exposure and cover myself up a little, I threw on my recently acquired Free People fishnet sleeves.

Lately, I’ve been doing some soul-searching and have pretty much overplayed “All the Above” by Maino ft. T-Pain this weekend.  It’s kind of my life anthem right now.  Hope you all enjoyed your two days of freedom!  I saw “The Hangover” and it was freakin’ hillarious.  I like dumb/raunchy comedies, and this was definitely the funniest movie I’ve seen since “I Love You, Man.”  Plus, Bradley Cooper has such pretty hair in the movie.

    Looking fabulous Becs! That dress fits you like a glove, and the boots were the perfect choice to offset the sexiness.

    I’m so bummed this dress is now sold out in my size, but of course I can always borrow it from you. But damn, when you got it, I should have bought one too. Topshop, if you’re listening, come back in stock in the smallest size you have!!

    Oh yeah, you look pretty as always and love the photos- man, I’m a good photographer.


  23. June 8, 2009 at 10:47 am

    Wow such a pretty outfit! Your boots looks fierce with that dress!

  24. June 8, 2009 at 10:52 am

    Ooooooh AND it would be such a Pleasure to go the Party with You !!!! You delightfully exudes Sensuality, on such a (so usual with you) Refreshing way . . . AND I truly think that side and/or back cleavages can be SEXYier than “classical ones” . . . What you perfectly illustrates Here !!!

    à Bientôt, Antoine

  25. June 8, 2009 at 11:56 am

    Exposing much or no skin…everything looks so gorgeous on you. You can wear anything! I am truely jealous!

    Love your combination!

    ps: Chinese fondue is a like hot boiling bouillon, and than you have to cook fishballs, thin slices of beaf or noodles etc etc in it. Just put it at the table and people around it, and picking out what you like to eat , yummie!


  26. June 8, 2009 at 12:22 pm

    Wow, the dress looks great on you! I love that you put on those gloves! I’m a little nervous about wearing it but it looks so sexy and definitely a head-turner! You look stunning in it! xxoxoxoxoxo

  27. June 8, 2009 at 12:32 pm

    this ensemble is hotness. the RAWR-ness of the cutouts with the edginess of the boots complement each other perfectly – you look amazing as always.

    girl you did that dress perfectly! i looooove the way you styled it with the boots. i’m really thinking i need a pair of boots like that in my life.
    i’ve been so wanting to see the hangover. i thought “i love you man” was so hilarious, so it’s good to know that you liked both movies, cause then i probably will too!

  48. June 9, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    All the Above has been stuck in my head for FOREVER.

    And I looove that dress – I must find something like it!

    You look absolutely gorgeous in that dress. I feel the same way with the whole skin-showing thing. I’ll wear a mini, but that’s kind of where it stops. Maybe someday I’ll try a dress with cut-outs….!

    OMG I am in love with your shoes!!! They look soo hot with that skirt!!
    I tried to check out the justin roper website and they have my size in A, B & Cs (each representing a different shape in the front). I talked to customer service, and they said that A was the narrowest one but that most people got B. Do you mind telling me which one you got? Thanks!
