high priestess chic

Well I just don't know, but I am pretty sure that there is nothing better for the last Friday of the summer than an impossibly bizarre (and definitely homemade) kimono sleeved wonderfrock.


Dress from Atlas Vintage in Seattle, a place that I can never seem to leave EMPTY-HANDED.


Aldo peep-toe lace-ups. Who was the wonderfully insane woman who made this?
PS I cut about 47 feet off the bottom.

I tell myself it was Mrs Roper. Who is a constant source of inspiration here at WL HQ (aka whereever tehre is free WeeFee and cheap STRONG coffee)






I slept terribly last night, thank GAGA I have my dress to keep me awake.
Today is Doree's first full day in Portland ever (yes!), and the beginning of the end of my visit here (boo!)..have to take advantage of the last bits of OREGON while I can!

HAPPY WEEKEND, LOVERPANTSES!!

I'm 100% serious, I don't think there's anyone in the world who pulls off mini-dresses like you. I think you were born to never wear pants, and I love you for it.

Oh, I love your dress!!

You remind me so much of Vickie (Janeane Garofalo's character in 'Reality Bites'). She had such a great way with words and awesome vintage style.

if i were a hot black guy on soul train i'd dance with you all day, or until the next commercial break, gurl.

larabehnert said...

whoa! i can't believe how hot that thing looks on you and how great the print is on. didn't see it on you, just balled up in the bag. was a teensy bit skeptical, but how could i have been!? it's brilliant, and what could i love more than white, spectrums and geometry? is it itchy tho?
