Heartbeats







There's been a construction crew working down the street the last few nights with a bunch of huge lights shining down the entire road. The lighting was so magical we had to stop to take a few pictures on the way home the other night. I think the guys working out there were slightly amused by the whole escapade.
The dress and clutch were a gift from my aunt over thanksgiving. She gave me a ton of new stuff, I can't wait to post it all! I don't have any of this color in my wardrobe so it's nice for a change. I might still have to do some tailoring on it though as the fit isn't perfect. Generally the shilouette is something I might, sadly, shy away from -the high neckline, the long hemline, the sleeves; all of that tends to look very conservative in clothing. But with the color, pockets, and (is there a name for this?) the shiny flowery design somehow it doesn't look entirely like an old lady! Although with the wrong accessories I'm certain it could.

The print of the dress is really cool! It almost looks like lace from far away. I like how you paired it up with this necklace and cuff! They both add a lot of edge to the outfit!! :D
