Dust in the Wind



Hi guyssss! It was CRAZY windy when I took these pics. It's still very windy, but the temperatures are finally moving into the springier regions so I'm not complaining!

I got all giddy today when I saw Calivintage had reblogged a picture I posted on my tumblr. It was just a streetstyle picture, not a picture of myself, but still! Calivintage is SUCH a style icon of mine so I felt ridiculously honored, haha!

I also stumbled upon this weird asian site selling clothes and stuff for like two pennies a pop. I found some pretty ones during a 10 minute browse, so I'm sure there's LOTS more where that came from!
(just the dress) 4.88$, here
5.04$ here
4.86$ here
4.80$ here
5.28$ here
5.28$ here
5.32$ here

and LA PIECE DE RESISTANCE (you'll be SO thankful)

THIS DRESS! An almost PERFECT copy of that polkadotted peter pan collared babydoll dress of mine from ZARA you all loved and wanted to buy. Get it here for 7.47$!!!!!! You may thank me by sending me your firstborn. I read on leblogdesushi that the quality and fit is perfectly fine, so don't be put off by the low price! The fit will probably be a lot shorter than on those tiny asian models, but I think I'm willing to take that risk for the ridiculously low price.


ANYWAY about my outfit: my dress is a vintage find that had to come home with me, I love the puffed sleeves, the pintuck details, the unique neckline and the print of the bright colored leaves blowing across the black fabric. Which was quite fitting, since it was SO windy. We went out to get pitta and I basically had to walk behind my boyfriend in order to move forward instead of being pushed backward.

dress: vintage (T2)
coat, belt: H&M
tights: Pimkie
clogs: New Look
necklace: Urban Outfitters

To answer some of your questions: I checked the shipping to Belgium, and you could choose between different rates. The most expensive one was like 27$, to have the stuff delivered to your door in a few days, and the cheapest was 5$ (I think), to have everything delivered in 50-70 days. But it all depends on the weight of your order and where you live, so check it out yourself!
