Fri, May 8/09 - Son of Dress Week - Casual Friday - Rocker Chick Again

One of the cool things I've learned by doing this blog is that my casual style is very definitely on the edge of rocker chick chic. For my age (going on 42 for those of you keeping track of these things), I can't go all out 'cause I'd look silly, but I can still add some hardware and keep my ol' rocker soul alive in my style.

I like that.

Anyway, this is my awesome 80s BCBG Max Azria Salvation Army bargain from a few months ago. It's really not such a snooze as my closed eyes would suggest:
It's just Friday and hey, I'm not a morning person. Getting my rocker chick self on involves adding the jean jacket, boots, chain belt and funky jewelry.

Oh, and my new bag, which is decidedly NOT rocker chick, but I love it anyway.
I think I may actually be leaning my head against the wall in that picture, haha!

The stuff:
The awesome brown boots. Everyone needs a pair of these. The cool belt Mom got me in London a couple of years ago, and Mom's vintage 60s choker. I also wore my ginormous real gold hoops.

A better look at the bag:
All the trim is leather (real leather!) and it's a Laura Ashley (stamped on the leather inside). It's a sort of acid greeny-yellow and the inside is fully open (no divider). It was only $28 in a consignment shop.

Dress (BCBG Max Azria, thrifted), jean jacket (Anne Taylor Loft, NYC), boots (Roberto Vianni), belt (gift from Mom), choker (Mom's, vintage), gold hoop earrings (gift from L), bag (Laura Ashley, consignment).

  2. I do too. It's my guilty pleasure. I love the bag. I'm not really a bag person, but this one called to me.
