I'd like to thank everyone for their feedback on my last post; it's refreshing to witness so much optimism!

On a lighter note...
The sun is currently filtering in through my blinds and making me sweat profusely. It would be wise to not go ahead and smell my armpits. However, it would be wise for me to show!thrustinyourface!proclaim!portray!display!air!blazon!
what I wore washing the dishes the other day.
Domestication to me is like the appendix to our body's sustenance: vestigial. (WHOA, I still remember some Biology 11! Whowouldathunkit?) Anyways, said outfit was really worn to my friend's very successful surprise 18th birthday--we're such good friends, it was only 3 weeks belated. ;)
Being model-ly is my day job--doesn't pay well though, hmph.

who what wear?
  • vintage dress: $1, F as in Frank (I have more to tell y'all about F as in Frank!)
  • sequined cardigan: $6, vintage, Value Village 
  • stilleto booties, $5, vintage, thrifted
  • bracelet + ring: both gifts!
  • necklaces: Suzy Shier, Forvever 21 
  • faux-leather tights: y'all should know by now!
    How bowteeful, right, right, right?
outfit commentary: Boy, was this one awkward dress to style. It had a plunging, heaving neckline and backline. It kept falling off my shoulders, too! Of course, with its short sleeves, I added the sequined cardi, but before I had, I was stumped  about what to do. Layering a long-sleeve shirt under was not my cup of tea--unless you like bulky--yech.  Still, I love this funky, 80'es-esque little number: it has got the cutest, most vivacious, lucious, bouncy, full skirt ever! And bows on not only the sleeves, but butt as well! And at a dollar-somethin'somethin--its a TOTAL STEAL!
          Goodbye Loverlies! Also, 60 followers + 95 likes on Facebook!? SPLENDID. Thanks y'all! Will be around to check out new blogs, soon iA.

Salam, Urooba! Thanks for your reply!
The language in my blog is portuguese, here in Brazil we speak portuguese. But as I love languages and dialogue, I speak also german, english, french and I am learning arabic now.
I now that you are going to be a journalist because you have style when you write, that means: success! I wish you good luck!
I am going to write about how hijab can be fashionable, it is a good idea, isn´it?
Kisses from Brazil.

AW YEAH THIS OUTFIT IS SMASSSHIN. As per usual. As in ALWAYS. (Gurl, WE ARE THE SAME PERSON. Not really, but I say that because I want the dress. So maybe that means that I own that dress if we are the same person? WHATEVER IT MADE SENSE IN MY HEAD.)

In conclusion, I want your dress. A lot. DESPITE the awkward stylin' dealio. THE BOW IS ADORBZZZZ.

P.S. I love your post below!
