Agree with Moon - I thought the theme was "modern" cowgirl until I read the heading....

straight out of the streets of london 1999.


What's your affinity to hats? I like what you've done with your vest and belt situation.


Hi! I love what ur doing. absolutely wonderful cause and beautiful basic black dress. I'm a hair stylist here in NYC, heard about you and want to lend some advice. You've got beautiful features that would lend well to a long bob or longer asymmetrical do. I'm thinkin' "Chicago" with some funk!

I am LOVING this look! Layers vests with a belt - brilliant! I would've walked past those shoes a few months ago. Now, Ithey just make me weak in the knees!

holly tagged this Hot

Oh, I'm liking this a lot. Unexpected colour combo but it seems to work. Also nice to see that total at the top right creeping up.

MJC tagged this In-vested!

Love it...all of it, including the Docs (which I firmly believe will be back in style soon). Must tell you that I am currently knitting myself some arm warmers! Have you to thank for it!!!

Irene tagged this Cute

the shoes itself don't fit that well with the outfit, but the colours match I guess.
