All That Glitters

The 1920's/30's/40's/50's/60's have always been a huge inspiration for me, and while I usually have an anxiety attack when period dress is not 100% historically accurate, I still love to borrow from eras passed. I know I have spent at least one life as a bright-eyed, bobbed-hair, flapper girl (wait, isn't that my current life?)

For tonights look I wore a piece designed by my dear friend Leah, or as she's known now "Bartlett Rand". She is a talented young designer in New York City, the day I met her she was wearing a makeshift dress from a scarf she had cleverly pinned together because she spilled something on her dress earlier in the evening. I immediately shared my french fries with her and she quickly became one of my best friends. 

I paired the gown with loads of vintage wear from my personal collection. One pair of golden heels, one feather headband, and one rabbit fur coat. I'm actually a strict vegan when it comes to my diet, and a big time animal lover. I don't like to buy new fur or leather but when I'm given a vintage piece I will usually keep it.
