this dress is one of my favorite etsy purchases to date. it is soo soft and fits like a dream.... check out the tarantula sisters for more amazing vintage. i really recommend scouring etsy for vintage... there are lots of high priced shops(with AMAZING pieces), but if you take the time you can find lots of shops with a style niche and decent prices. i mostly shop at goodwill and salvation army, but there are times when i am looking for something in particular and etsy has delivered... right now i have my eye on quite a few pieces and hopefully some of them will be mine soon :) gotta finish my christmas shopping first though :P

i went to see the black swan this weekend! it was unbelievable... a true fairytale... well, my kind of fairytale... very dark, but deep and beautiful as well...

i also recommend the 10 questions for the dalai lama and jean-michel basquiat: the radiant child. i watched both multiple times in the last few days.... i did have to return them today, but am considering buying both

vintage/secondhand dress-tarantula sisters, jet by john eshaya cardi, love quotes cashmere scarf, chloe docs, vintage sunnies stolen from the boy, beanie handmade by yours truly, inklined knee highs-sockdreams

That's a dress I could totally wear...and it's my new fav-black & white stripes.

LOVE the tights/boots...so cool. I def. want to see the Black Swan! thanks for the tip on other movies, that's what I love to do on the weekends, especially when it's cold or rainy.

this funky fab outfit brings to mind an ole school tune, "head-to-toe" --- yea, "love ya, babe, from head-to-toe...!" :)

yea, invoking imagery suggestive of your most recent posts, sabella, here ya appear some darling fabulously funky, bodaciously bohemian beauty, fairytale-like, flowerchild goddess!!! :)

beginning to bring blessed new perspective & "totally comprehende" of mariah's holiday classic, "all i want for Christmas (babe)--- is u, u, u...!" aaaalleluah, aaaalleluah, alleluah, alleluah...!!! :) <333

namaste,
xoxo

ps- hey, who knows, if there's ever really, truly such a thing as a "Christmas Miracle...!?!" :D

pss- that rockin'-righteous scarf, deargrrl, is truly reminiscent of an "amazingly beauteous bow" upon an altogether "heavenly pulchritudinous package!!!" :D ever <333 u

plentyforpennies said...

I second the etsy shopping. Just scored an amazing fur which I can't wait to blog! Easier too since I don't really have time to go thrifting in the city. Love those sunspecs on you!

TrophyBoutique said...

Cool dress! You're so right about etsy--much easier to find something specific than on ebay where there's too much junk mixed in. I once stuck gold searching "vintage trophies" on etsy. Kind of amazing.

you look amazing!

apparellel said...

hi beautiful sabella, i've been missing you. just haven't been visiting my blogs lately. it's nice when i get to catch up though!

i SOOOO want to see black swan, it looks like an amazing movie!

i also love etsy for those hard to find pieces. i get a lot of my hats there. i've been so sick that i couldn't even shop at half off all clothing at salvation army the other day, which is unheard of in my world. did that make sense?

thanks for your love and support. we will meet one of these days.

Just clicked on your link for that Etsy shop. I am now in love with an unreasonably priced green plaid coat. Why oh why must shipping be so expensive! Thanks for pointing us towards it.

Come enter the Licentiate giveaway!
