And let me stay here for a while

Urban Outfitters dress worn as top & shorts. Vintage necklace and Cole Haan shoes. Fishnet thigh high stockings from costume store

I’m now convinced that thigh high stockings elongate your legs.  I’ll be flea marketing this weekend at the Rose Bowl and hope to find some good stuff. Have a fabulous weekend!

    Wooow I will never fail to be mesmerized by the way these “Marvelously well-worn” thigh high stockings tend to “sulfurize” the part of the tights that it unveil . . . especially with such a “BOMBnextDoor-esque” BODY like yours !!!! OR When “Alcôve aesthetics meets Vavavavooooooooomesque casualness’ idea/reality” . . .
    ps: I wish you a Fabulous Week End too Dear .

    You work those even when it’s not Halloween. I’m jealous. I might have to try mine out with a little dress or something (just not too little because Hollywood Blvd. might get a bit excited, hah!).
    Hey, you going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market this Sunday? I’ve never been, but kind of want to check it out…

    Sweet shoes. Funny, when I wear fishnets, I just get stared at…

    oh and I’ll be home in 10 days or so. It has been awhile, huh?

    Hi Becs!!
    This is so nice to finally be back on the blogosphere and find my fav bloggers!
    As I can see your style has become better and better these past months: that grey Hurley dress really flatters your figure (OMG I’m in love with it), the lady Gaga disguise is so realistic (blond hair actually suits you!), that lace dress used as a top looks so vintage …gosh I missed this blog and I’m glad to be back.
    Thanks for your sweet comments
    Have a very nice week-end

    Ahh absolutely love the fishnet thigh highs!! They add such a unique touch to this outfit and go very well with the denim shorts!! =)

    How are you wearing jean shorts in November? I am so jealous, I am here in stormy Seattle layering it up. I think that thigh highs may elongate the legs too, I need to buy some.
    Hope you’ve had a nice weekend.

    you make thigh high fishnets look so good! and you know what’s crazy? i have never been to the rose bowl flea. every time when it comes up i get crazy busy and tell myself “i’ll go next month” and miss out on cool stuff.

    btw, Neekoh told me about a shopping date. I want in on that 🙂

    Romantic blouse + 90’s jeans shorts is a pretty cool mix!

    Your above post will not load for me no matter what I do 😦 boo! I bet it’s lovely though, because you always are -(and chic to boot!)

    By the way, these garter-fishnets have me crazed. Ever since I caught Taylor Momsen in them I swooned. Too scared to try them for myself, but man are you working them !!!! HOT!.


  33. November 12, 2009 at 11:49 pm

    I love the idea of wearing a dress as a top, its super cute!

  34. November 13, 2009 at 9:35 pm
