I am calling this post ‘Laser Lace’ because my new Forever 21 dress has a winding, connected lace-esque pattern. It also has a strange burnt smell that makes me imagine that it was wound and connected by some big, futuristic machine with lasers that steadily pieced each section into place!
See that pattern? It’s sort of lacy, sort of spiderweb-ish. Either way, I love it. This outfit is like my perfect summer combo: feminine, avant garde and…black. Haha.
I’m not much of a sandals person. Even in the summer I tend to pair airy, above-the-knee cotton dresses with chunky platform wedge ankle boots. So, when I do decide to get sandals, they have to be really special. I’ve been wanting these Chloes for so long — I think I even linked to them in a post here on the blog over a year ago. Thanks to yoox, I found these super on sale and my shoe dreams came true. Granted, they’re fairly high and narrow but they don’t seem to bind or pinch. And, I mostly sit at a desk anyway so I am not too concerned about being able to walk a mile in them. I haven’t had such great luck with other Chloe shoes but the incline on these feels just right.

Rocky was so well-behaved during last night’s photo session! Normally he whimpers, tugs and pulls but this time, he just stood perfectly still. He cracks me up. I love it when I get home from work and he’s waiting at the door for me with his hair parted down the middle and all brushed out!

P.P.S. Sorry for the blog slowdown. My weeks seem to keep getting busier and busier.
