HAPPY GO LUSH

Today's look is actually from summertime, which explains my bare arms, legs, and chipper disposition! I guess I lose a little bit of that lust for life as the days grow shorter and nights nippier. When it's cold and dark, there's fewer opportunities to get out and travel. You gotta attend to the chilly weather with more clothes and schedule your day to get everything done while it's still light out. So there's not as much time to relax, and on top of that, the biting air makes outdoor fun near impossible. I'm sure plenty of people look forward to winter for the holidays and hot beverages, but as I celebrate neither, I'm outta luck! My glory days rest between May and August. Long days, hot breezes, all the time in the world to hit the road... untethered to any obligation at all.







FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Glasses - Flea market
Medallion necklace - Oscar De La Renta
Faux fur vest - CHICWISH
Baroque print dress - ROMWE
Wedges - Jeffrey Campbell

I found this baroque-print, retro style dress on Romwe. Elaborate gold patterns have made a huge resurgence all over the blogosphere, and I'm especially happy to see them in the inventory of retailers I frequent most, like Akira, Lulus, and 80s Purple. That vivid, vintage Versace look is what I'm ALL about, no matter how trendy and fast fashion it seems at the moment. It's an aesthetic with a sense of humor. Exaggerated opulence. Sartorial sarcasm. This dress is only a subtle nod to said theme, but let it be known that it is only a teaser to the ornamental gold details I'll be sporting in the coming season. ;)

Everything is infinite,

Bebe Zeva

  2. I'm totally with you on your love for summer. In the winter I only get to wear sweaters, pants and boots. I don't really get to show my best wardrobe pieces :/

  9. In love with the baroque print dress! Such vibrant colors and patterns. And it goes great with the fur vest, I would've never guessed to pair those two together! I desperately need a fur vest.
