Light Trails



[dress: Calvin Klein/ locket: vintage, heels: Aldo, clutch: vintage]

I feel like Calvin Klein and I are old friends. I always fall back on his clothes for their simplicity and elegance. I bought this taupe linen dress a few days ago; I'm in love with the cinched waist and high neckline. It totally satisfies my Mad Men 60s secretarial obsession. I was so excited to wear this dress that I jumped at the first opportunity to do so. Oddly enough, this was an excursion to a dive bar (beer cozies, giant fish on the wall, a jukebox playing Bob Dylan, etc). Whatever. I rocked it anyways.




I still have no idea what to be for Halloween. I was going to do the whole Lady Gaga shtick but I'm wondering if it's a bit played out. I despise running into someone wearing the same clothing as me, imagine what it would be like at a costume party? Lady Gaga smackdown, that's what.

Style Icon: Coco Sumner






I adore her. The effortless grunge translates to chic in my book.

  4. Cute dress. Yea, the lady gaga thing is being played out. I'm going to be her for Halloween and I keep hearing other people will be also. I'm not going out locally (NJ). I will be in the village (NY) so who cares right? i will just blend in with all the other drag queens. :)
