Concrete Catwalk // Festive Floral

December 15, 2011

When I double checked my invitation to a holiday party I attended this past week, and saw that the theme was “give colorfully” – I immediately knew that I had to wear my new vintage maxi dress that boasts some of the brightest I’ve got.  Perhaps even more appropriate, it is also my very first New Jersey thrifted find!  I layered it up with some black wedge booties (with thigh high socks!), and another one of my vintage faves: this Halston wool coat that I found for just a few dollars at an estate sale in Kansas City.  Topped it off with a fluffy bun, and a be-tasseled clutch and I was feeling festive in no time!
