'Breathe Life Into A Stone'



I've had this black lace dress for at least 6 years now. Found it again while I was switching over my closet FINALLY from winter clothes to summer.  Instantly, I knew it was the perfect piece to recreate this dress that I saw in Lucky Mag.!  I simply substituted the black slip it came with with my trusty neon pink slip et voila (slip worn here and here as well)!

Added the H&M neon yellow goodies for an added pop since black shoes just seemed to dull it down. Hey, if ya going to go for it, then go for it! Don't be afraid of color as I used to be! Love the color, be one with the color, wear the color...okay...

Happy first day of Summer!!! Whoo Hooo!









What I'm Wearing:
Lace Dress: Betsey Johnson via Macys
Neon Slip: Free People (other colors here)
H&M Neon Heels
Armery: JCrew, Julie Nolan, Bali Name Cuff
Sunspecs: RayBan
Lips: Mac Plumful

And Congratulations to Stacey of Five Minute Style for winning the Julie Nolan Astrological Cuff/ Necklace giveaway! The winning number was 638 and she came the closest with 629!  Enjoy Stacey!
