Twinkle Toes

See by Chloe dress. Bow headband. Vintage costume Art Nouveau & gold necklaces. Vintage costume woven bangle. Satellite mesh bracelet. Betsey Johnson crochet tights. Chanel bag. Miu Miu shoes.
Sometimes a girl has to indulge herself - this dress was an impulse purchase sans regrets. I was immediately attracted to the frock's lace paneling, which is reminiscent of Louis Vuitton/Stella McCartney for fall 2009 RTW. I escorted the dress to a changing room post-haste, where the lush pink blooms winding up its body & the buttons climbing down its back confirmed our mutual passion. As this ladylike frock required companionship of the appropriate calibre, my large Chanel tote bag & a pair of sparkling ballerinas were just the ticket.
This purse also accompanied me to the Met over the weekend, where we took in the American Stories show; I recognized some of my old friends there (including Mary Cassatt & John Singer Sargent) & made some new ones (Lilly Martin Spencer & William McGregor Paxton). It was ingrained in me at a young age to visit special art exhibitions - shows of this breadth are unlikely to occur again during my lifetime.
