as soon as i made plans for portland, i emailed miss camille of the childhoodflames and was like GURL GIMME THE INFO..because duh.
not only did she send me an epic list, she offered to take me on a lil walking/streetcar tour of vintage and designer amazingnessssss...i ACCEPTED and on monday we met up and had some fun.
i don't want to ASSUME, but i would say we had the best time when she took me to nordstrom to meet her best friends aka the designer clothing racks:
CHANEL SILVER SEQUINZ. so. DOPE.
yeah, $3,000. on CLEARANCE. anyone, anyone? there were TWO left, we were tempted to get the pair (nottttt)
lanvin knit shrugcardigan, so soft, so aamzing, so many dollarssss. sighhhhh. (paging yokoo?)
chanel ankle bags! remember these? inspired by lindsay lohan's ANKLE MONITOR?! ohhh KARL, you card...they were hilarious. if i had a spare 200 (clearance!) i woulda considered it, HANDS FREE IS THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE! yah?
PSA: this dries collection is as A-MA-ZINGGG in person as you would want it to be. the beading/sequinnage is badonkz. this dress looked terrible on me but i still liked wearing it.
camille had a harder time saying byebyeee:
i mean...if you looked like this in this dress mabes you would shed hot salty tears, too. it was the lightest thinnest silk ever with a bajillion beads n sequins at the top. it was SO SICK.
we decided: the tiny gold patch MADE the dress.
and as i have been asked by more than a few: camille is as lovely and sweet and cool in person as you would expect. as she is a tad shyer than me, i talkedtalkedtalked most of the time....(duh, obvs, duh). thanks again, camille!!!
our field trip next week: THE BINS (goodwill outlet...clothes by the pound...holy schiesse)
ps..go read her post about our day, she has realllly good pics of the INSANE jean-paul gaultier vintage 80s bustier (ahem..zana...you need it) we saw and you can see me acting/looking like a total nerd....a million xo's for you, camille
