boom boom boom bing. this look really made my heart sing. I really felt like I belonged on the flintstones or in the wild. I actually wore this on my recent romantic christmas dinner out, and I was a bit frustrated that I could not snap my look before the sun went down. LUCKILY, I was able to snap this pictures in the perfect local: THE ZOO! Don't I fit right in? It looks like an editorial set! HAHAH!
I actually found this dress in the halloween costume area of the thrift store, but I'm sure it used to be an ice skaters uniform, whichever, its super cute, and ultra velvety. I've been lusting over a velvet mini for years. I had to add my own personal spin to it, so with my new spunky shorter hair I've been playing with Japanese sweet style pig tails. It's a little bit of 80s meets japan which is a wonder combo. The necklace is actually a hand me down from my mom's afro centric days in the early 90s~ fight the power!
So my look is Pebbles meets ice skater meets 80s meets japan meets goth....yeah that sounds about right.
Plus to top things off, Dave whisked me away to my favorite Indian restaurant in chicago! The Standard Indian Restaurant. I LOOOOOOOVE this place, and he even surprised me with sparkling wine. Dave is full of surprises this year! I love that he keeps me guessing ;)
