the sensations of a noble man











[lace dress: vintage/ black slip (worn underneath): Old Navy/ giant knit scarf: vintage/heels: Aldo/ jacket: old]

Tonight was a night of many pictures. I'm completely enamored with this ridiculous giant knit scarf. It's the color of oatmeal and drags along the floor when I walk... the cantankerous thrift store clerk tried to tell me it was a wrap,but I refuse to be reasoned with. This lace dress is one of my old fall backs, and the cobalt heels are finally getting worn in enough to wear in daily life. Does anyone else have a giant issue with breaking in Aldo heels? It's like they're reinforced with steel. 
I'm not feeling prodigiously creative tonight, seeing as I have a mountain of homework to tackle, so I'll leave you all with a mélange of photos from my inspiration folder. 








Oh & thanks to Hot Panic for this award!
