"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

...and other reasons Raymond Chandler is my hero.

"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

I've had this dress for a couple years and it's kind of my go-to summer dress, because it makes me feel like a bond girl. Of course, the boots don't hurt.

Those boots are amazing, you're so lucky you have long legs to be to pull them off.

And your haircut suits you well! I think the hair in combination with the dress reminds me of Agent strawberry fields from the latest Bong movie!

Delectable Swank said...

this look is stunning on you. Love every single part of it, from the dress itself (want one of my own) to the belt, but ESPECIALLY the bond girl boots of course. Will you have that martini shaken, not stirred?

leila grace said...

i still die when you wear those boots..... they seriously look amazing on your. your height and skin tone really make em pop, more so than they already do

as for my heels that you so kindly drooled over lol. i bought them a year ago at a mall near me. but i saw them floating around this site back in spring
