When I got this vintage nylon dress a year ago, I asked myself:
"Could I wear this without it looking costume-y??"
There is something mysterious and modern about it.
I love the design and its details.
It simply makes a statement.

I love the blue! But you probably already knew that since I love the deep royal colors hehe. I think I'm totally digging the cinched belt though. It's doesn't take over your dress in anyway. And the sleeves are way cute!

I love your clothes.

And I twittered lots back to you hahah. I want those freaking shoes now now now.

It does not look costume-y at all! It looks incredible! In fact, you remind me of a Chinese Emperor for some reason...not bad at all! The color obviously attracts a lot of attention because its so bold, but lately even I have been getting into royal blue!
