this crocheted dress is actually my sister’s, but she left it at my place and i love it to bits and she’ll lucky if she ever gets it back.  i joke, i joke – thanks for letting me borrow it, kari.  this pic was taken on the roof deck at colossal squid – beautiful panoramic views of chicago’s lovely skyline.

and a transistion to evening.  i wear my sunglasses at night.

this diamond ring was my great aunt emma’s – she got it for being one of the first women to graduate with a master’s degree from northwestern university.  and now it’s mine.  i don’t normally like diamonds AT ALL – i think there is so much evil behind them – but since this is vintage and a family heirloom, i am making a special exception and have decided to like it a great deal.  so there.

outfit details: cream crochet dress is vintage – i think my sis purchased it at a flea market or something; yellow snakeskin wedges are bcbg; bow headband is urban outfitters

song inspiration: “the luckiest guy on the lower east side” by the magnetic fields.  this video is a cute student animation of one of my favorite songs from 69 love songs.  oh, who am i kidding?  i love 67 of the 69 songs on that 3 album set.  but regardless, this is a good one and always speaks spring to me.
