It's just textbook stuff...It's in the A-B-C of Growing Up







Just Run with Me Through Rows of Speeding Cars.
(Dress: Topshop | Pearls: Forever 21 | Fringe Necklace: +RUCKUS | Shoes: Capital Vice | Bag: Cambridge Batchel)Link

I felt very girly today (as opposed to my black punk rock casual look yesterday) and so I decided to wear my poufy empire cut Topshop dress and work that classic LBD into an outfit. The LBD is a statement piece in every girl's wardrobe- you can play around with it- be sexy, sweet, casual, vixen-ish, depending on how you style and accessorized it.









Since it was a Sunday and I wanted to be quite a sweetheart, I chose pink accessories, pearls and ribbons to complete my look. I layered a pearl and a cameo necklace with a fringed necklace from my cousin's online store +RUCKUS as accent pieces to my dress. Tied my hair in a big bun and added a ribbon for "effect". Finished off the look with a very pink Cambridge Batchel (it's so Elle Woods, I love it!) and a pair of Black and Pink wedges with pink ribbon bows which were from Capital Vice, a new store I definitely definitely love now... (PS: The shoes were beyond comfortable to walk in... I loved it)... Real life fashion doll? I think so....

Texture: My brother's Topman shirt matched the floors of Cafe Med, it was interesting....

(Makeup was Smashbox Primer, Bobbi Brown BB Cream, VOV Concealer, Shu Uemura Powder, Mac Shimmer Blush in Gleeful, Eyelash Mascara in Boy/Girl, Smashbox Eyeshadow Trio in Centerstage, Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Pale Pink, Maybelline Volume Express Mascara, MAC Fix+ Spray )

My brother, Enzo's outfit reminded me so much of an Aztec inspired look I wore when I watched Cowboys and Aliens!


Accessory fiend: I hoarded accessories and rings today!



Speeding Cars- Imogen Heap
here's the day you hoped would never come
don't feed me violins
just run with me through rows of speeding cars
the papercuts, the cheating lovers
the coffee's never strong enough
i know you think it's more than just bad luck

there there, baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
now now, darling
don't lose your head
none of us were angels
and you know I love you, yeah

sleeping pills know, sleeping dogs lie
never far enough away
glistening in the cold sweat of guilt
I've watched you slowly winding down for years
you can't keep on like this
now's a bad a time as any

there there, baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
now now, darling
don't kill yourself
none of us were angels
and you know I love you, yeah
