Outfit Post: Mi Corizon




I am inspired by many things-
fashion history, fashion magazines, beautiful poetry, blooming flowers, and... bloggers

When I spied this beautiful vintage dress on the racks at a neighborhood thrift store

I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite "prostis," the gorgeous La Dama of Vintage Passions Just Like Mine. She would of course look perfect in this caliente frock, and so, I've decided to dedicate my outfit to her. From the tops of my Sassy Vamps floral headpiece down to my leopard print detailed shoes, this outfit screams: La Dama! Bella amiga mía, tu es uno entre un millón y vale la pena cada centavo. Tu corazón es grande y valiente, su cara es una preciosidad y su espíritu es la llama sagrada. El amor a ti, hermana. Muah.



Estoy usando:

  • casco floral por Sassy Vamps
  • vintage vestido rojo Mexicana, thrifted
  • brazo dulces: los diversos
  • mis zapatos locos: Sole Society

Mi Corazon, I love you! You look gorgeous in red!!! Extremely red!!!!! You look like a beautiful peony.
I want to wear more red but it's kind of difficult here because they have "red shirt" party and I can be misunderstood by wearing red. Thai people don't really wear red often. But I keep my red lips ^_^

I seriously gasped when I saw that first twirl pic. Wow! That dress! - topped by your sassy red topper and those wicked jungle shoes! I hope when you went out that you twirled all the way down the sidewalk and that people parted before you like they were seeing a vision. Red is you!
