Joey and I were quite the rebels when taking these pictures- as we were driving down the road he saw that fence (only in Texas can you find a rural looking barb-wired field completely surrounded by enormous office buildings) and just stopped the car, put the emergency lights on, and hopped out. Anyway, this dress is kind of a departure for me- more feminine than I usually feel comfortable in, but way too pretty to turn down. Free People has been really knocking it out of the park recently- I worked for them for about 2.5 years and never saw anything as great as what they've been doing recently. Speaking of retail outlets, I have always talked a big game about boycotting American Apparel (due to their hiring practices and skeez of a CEO) but I might just have to eat my words because their cupcake and ballerina Halloween costumes are absolutely beautiful. Every year I end up just grabbing random crap out of my closet, rubbing glitter on my face, and going as a fairy/hippie, which is getting really boring. It would be fun to wear the AA ballerina costume with my old toe shoes (I used to be a dancer) and get beyond wasted- the variables for hilarity (or broken ankles) when I try to bust out some of my old ballet moves are basically endless. Ok, I have officially talked myself out of my (admittedly irresolute) AA boycott. And all for some silly skirt that I could just buy at a dance supply store. You win this time, Dov Charney. But I still think you're a perv. So there.
