maxwell led the demon rock hand jive

maxwell led the demon rock hand jive

Who would have thought Forever 21 would be such a jackpot for lace tops?  I certainly didn't, but now I'm thinking I might need to go back and get a few more...

Leaving for New Mexico and there's a possibility I'll be offline for a week - SCARY!  Preemtively freaking out.

Forever 21 lace top
Forever 21 shorts and belt
Proenza Schouler shoes
vintage necklace
Chanel purse

PS Hope all of you Statesiders have a nice Thanksgiving!

  2. Forever 21 sometimes have such fabulous items, just have to patiently look for them. And this lace top is just awesome. Go get more E.

    Have a safe trip too!

  3. OMG, I love New Mexico-it's so otherworldly, isn't it? I always hope to see flying saucers but I never do. But I was there last fall, and got some kickass jewelry from a Zuni roadstand. But also...um, more importantly, I don't want you to be offline for a week! Wow, I'm super lame. And in LOVE your Proenza Schoulers.

    In terms of photo editing, I use Adobe Lightroom and some contrast-manipulation.

    Anyway, you're looking stunning as always. Envy!

  29. Wow! I havent' been in F21 in a couple of years, but maybe I should consider revisiting them.

    Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy New Mexico!

    ReplyDelete
  30. have fun in new mexico!

    f21 definitely has deals and steals for anything that is in style, I like how you paired your top with shorts and tights! Im not gutsy enough to try shorts and tights yet... and it is super cold in Chicago so I'm not sure how that would all work out.

    safe travels!

  85. haha ... speaking being off line - it might be a great way to get away from internet for a bit - sometimes, i found those offline moments to be extremely constructive! time to think and plan rather than constantly staring at computer - either case, the lace top is starling!

    have great time in mexico and belated happy thansgiving, xx
