Today, My Name is Fay
Evening folks. Tonite I got to wear my first designer piece, a lovely sequin and wool dress by Marc Jacobs, one of my favorite designers of all time. Did you guys see that movie with Anne Hathaway "One Day"....when she lived in Paris and was all sophisticated and stuff meeting her old friend....the halter dress she was wearing? Remember? I loooooved that dress and had been looking for one similar. This is close enough, and I found it at Buffalo Exchange to top it all off! $34 for a dress originally costing over $400. Nuts, eh? It fits super well, comfy wide waistband and full circle skirt, plus the scallop detail is so pretty. The sequins add a bit o pizzazz to it all! Hope I don't throw it in the wash one day and shrink the heck out of it as I usually do with wool items. I wore it with some rad burgundy heels I found at Forever 21...once again, had been searching high and low for burgundy shoes and lo and behold, there they were for a mere 24 doll hairs.
One other thing, I visited this vintage/ antique store a while back, couple years ago maybe...Dolly Python, in Dallas, and I fell in love with it. I even thought, "Man, Im going to do a whole blog posting about this place." Yes, that awesome!!! Just recently, my coworkers and I went during our lunch break (fellow fashionistas/shopoholics), and I fell in love alllllll over again, in a bad BAD way. I found this amazing little purse with such gorgeous detail and color. Embossed roses and the name "Fay" on the front. The cashier asked me if my name was Fay. It is now buddy!!!!
