Let's Party

Does anyone else feel an inexplicable need to buy clothes they will not have occasion to wear? No? Well, I do. I am always drawn to kick-ass party dresses, despite the fact that I am not a "party girl" and my idea of a wild night doesn't get much more exciting than driving around super-late, running around in some woods in the dark, and skinny-dipping. Umyeah. Did I really just admit that in a public forum? It's okay. I live in a really, really boring suburban area and I'm mostly pretty content to hang with my friends or my laptop or my books. The truth comes out.

Moving on.....

My latest party dress obsession? This reasonably-priced little number from Twelve by Twelve:

Cool, huh? The tan layer is actually mesh, which makes it, at least in my mind, a little rock 'n roll. I'd wear it with my black ankle boots, messy hair, and maybe a studded cuff or two.

Now that I think of it, the outfit is a bit reminiscent of the Courtney Love look that Little J is rocking in the videos of her band, Pretty Reckless, which I have been watching a wee bit obsessively. It's just...who knew she had that in her? I won't pretend it's brilliant, but I like it. Can't believe that voice comes out of that little 15-year-old girl we're used to seeing in Gossip Girl. (Yes, I watch it. I am not proud.)

I like the video! My dad is the only person in my family who watches Gossip Girl, but when I have seen it I've liked Taylor's character/style a lot. I'd heard that she was in a band, but I assumed it was too small to find any of the music. Obviously I should have looked! Thanks for this.

Also, dress is awesome.

I do the same thing! I don't like limiting myself though, so I'd wear anything any time of the day.

Haha I suffer from the illness that makes me not just look at things i'll never wear, but by them also! I currently have a floor length green silk dress that has never yet seen the light of day, well, I've pranced around my room in it but that's about it!! I read somewhere that apparently what I'm doing is buying for the woman I would like to be, rather than the one I am - pah, I just like pretty clothes!! Love the mesh on the dress!! xx

There is no shame in loving Gossip Girl!
Yeah I couldn't believe the sound of her voice. She's clearly talented but it is not my taste at all!
Have you heard Leighton Meester's song with Cobra Starship, 'Good girls go bad'? ( It's lusshhh!

Finally something good from Forever21. Nice. =) Sara Jayne said...

LOVE that dress! I feel the same way, though. I always feel the need to buy clothes that, frankly, I don't particularly need. But hey, if it makes you happy... Eliza said...

What a great dress! Cute, unique, and versatile--I couldn't believe it when I saw the price.

I definitely agree--I always want to buy every cute dress I see, even though I have occasion to wear them probably...three times a year. Becca


Love this dress, and I totally hear ya there. I buy clothes all the time that I have no occasion to wear them for. It's fun to play dress-up though? If its a killer outfit, still gotta have it.
