pink accents- white lace

{F21 lace dress & sunnies, GAP trenchcoat, Trina Turk scarf, no name bellbottoms, Old Navy bag, not shown SM platforms}

I took a risk this day and did up the see thru lace top trend- I'm not much for showing a lot of skin, but this ethereal-hippie-esque look was much easier to pull off than I expected. The "lace top" is actually a lace dress I tucked into my bells (see it as a dress here). The upper half of this outfit was much more interesting and overall aesthetically pleasing than the lower half- San Francisco wind storm plus super bellbottoms equal unflattering, and uncute pictures!

I had just watched a CARLOS the Jackal 3 part Sundance mini-series and was pretty inspired by the '70's in Paris' hippie look the females in the movies portrayed so well- hence my overtly bohemian attempt to recreate it on a much less obvious level.

Insanely riveting yet completely devoid of all emotion that guy Carlos. Anyone else see this series or hear of this guy before? Google it- crazyass revolutionary born IIich Ramirez Sanchez, but better known as Carlos.

  11. I think you styled that lace dress perfectly!! Every time I see someone with that piece of lacy perfection I am sad that I didn't run to F21 and scoop one of those up!!
