Wow!! I didn't expect that there would be a bunch of mixed reviews regarding my last post but it's all good. We have to learn to agree to disagree right :) So just a few facts to clear up:
  • Yes..I can assure you she is a she. The model is Iselin Steiro and the photos were shot by David Sims
  • Yes..I do agree, she does resemble Steven Tyler and maybe a touch of Captain Jack Sparrow-esque added into the mix..yes??
  • Yes..the jacket she's wearing is indeed the ridiculously priced BALMAIN jacket
  • I personally don't necessarily think the photos were scary, I do though find it quite intriguing. The odd rough messy styling and her masculine posture was what appealed to me the most but that's just me, I guess imperfections are amusing to me.
Enough of that, I've been constantly searching for the perfect tribal print dress with a hint of a bohemian feel but haven't been lucky enough to even come close to actually finding one yet. So I'm starting to consider of making one instead. I thought it might suit me better as well since my measurements aren't exactly model like either. It's still an idea though so I haven't actually thought it through on how I'm going to pull this off haha.. FYI the one I'm wearing isn't exactly what I have pictured in mind my dream dress would be like; heck it isn't even a dress to begin with but it was cheap so what the hell. I thought I might use my imagination and give a shot at being creative for once..did it work??

Wishing you a pleasant week ladies :)

great combination of colors and beautiful shape of it.

the pattern is adorable, I wish I can wear something like that but it doesn't suit me at all, pink black and grey are the ones suits my skin colour. Odd because I love red!

I like the model, she's definitely not your average.

I love your blog! You've got great style.

Mimi said...

it worked. i actually like it. it's proportioned well enough and the belt brings it together.

tribal prints are hard to find!

first of all, nobody really ever looks spectacular in one. well it's rare okay? :3 okay maybe i'm a little cynical because i look like a stout little asian girl when i try to wear tribal.

D: wah.

good luck hunting/diying!

thanks for visiting btdubbs xx

By the way, thanks for your comment about the Alice in Wonderland-boycott.
Really stupid indeed, i read the issue is pretty much done & they're going to refuse the movie in cinemas for real :S That never happened before!

tailorstitch said...

the "dress" is great, i like the bold print. To be honest not everyone is going to agree with everyone, but thats what makes it fun i would rather come to a blog where i can raise points and have convos rather than a boring one. Keep it up :)

Tori said...
