LWD

 I've gone most of my life without a little white dress. Or a little black dress, for that matter! I was telling my roomate, Laura, the story behind this outfit in an elevator. The other girl in there probably thought I was a weirdo, because this is a combination of lingerie from Goodwill and my Mom's slip. I bought some lingerie from my neighbor's estate sale, too, that I'm going to wear as a dress, which is even creepier, since it belonged to his recently late wife. Vintage is all about wearing old people's clothes, right?
I thought I'd dress this lacey number down with my America backpack and my fake leather boots.
 I guess I wore this cardigan 2 days in a row, but I don't care. I'd wear it all the time if I my other clothes didn't get jealous (they do).
Oh hey this is it before I shortened it!
 My shoes came from Modcloth! You'll be seeing them soon. But here's my roomate Laura, wearing her new Modcloth dress that I demanded she buy! What a stud.

  3. I think that a LWD is a necessary component to any working wardrobe ;) Haha the concept of vintage is always a little weird isn't it - but at least you know it is one of a kind! You look lovely :)

    1. Thankyou!
      I love the stories vintage pieces tell! But then there's always the fact that someone who is now dead probably wore the same dress.

  7. that dress doesn't remind me of lingerie at all! it's so gorgeous. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets slightly creeped out wearing estate clothes. O.o

    1. Haha thanks! I have a lot from the estate sale, but I think lingerie is the creepiest for obvious reasons!
