monocle macromania.

short but sweet today. i can hear all the sighs of relief now. (=: today's outfit was based around this vintage chanel magnifying glass necklace, which was very popular in its day--somewhere in the '85-'89 period i believe. very madonna "express yourself." this gem was also from my grandma's collection. and... the hat. need i say more?

dress: vintage laize adzer, stirrup lace tights: american apparel, leopard print booties: zara, hat: vintage with added tail, vintage chanel magnifying glass necklace: grandma's collection, hand chain: apparellel.

  11. amazing monocle...and even better that it is from your grandma! i have my grandmother's wedding ring and it is my most cherished possession.

    by the way... i have just added "unhook the stars" to my netflix queue. i can't wait to see it....and of course, i won't judge! i am sure is amazing, but i completely understand not having the final say and having to compromise for a higher power- such is the industry!


  12. The monocle is awesome. As are the tights. And the rest of the outfit for that matter, although I'm not sure I'd have the nerve to wear it myself.

  13. Great shoes!
