leathuuhhhhhh and cross dressing

haha, leathuhhh everywhere. Anyway, I went shopping with my two best friends, Jew and Hipster Jaime. Consonants ROCK. I don't think I've ever posted a picture of my manbitch, so to get to know him better, here he is.

First stop was Another Man's Treasure. I found three lovely dresses. This was the one most in y price range -- $52. I've never spent that much money on one dress but it's so lovely! I put it on hold so I can think about if it's worth that much to me or not.... I only have $80 to spend and I want to get as much as possible! There's a blog meetup later this month and I want to have money to shop then as well. Opinions? I have a week.

"So Clothes Horse." Really lovely dress, I'd have to alter it and bring it up a bit to fit my bust and it's a hassle. I'm sure it would look fantastic on Rebecca though. $65...? I forget.

WHY IS THE PERFECT DRESS OUT OF MY PRICE RANGE. $95. It makes me feel like a princess, I wish I had more to spend... The print reminds me of Prada's fairy tale themed collection. IT. IS. SO. FLATTERING. Ugh.

....annddd what we ended up getting. It was $20, and ironically, from another vintage store in the area. It's got stains but that's why it was so heavily discounted. I'm trying to convince Abigail to let me chop off the top part (the bust doesn't fit either of us) so it would be a skirt instead. It'd be perfect with an AA heathered sweatshirt...

Sneak peak of the next post. I wonder what store this is...? ;] Hyuk hyuk hyuk.

i love your "perfect" dress! it's gorgeous. i would be sad leaving it behind as well. that store has some really amazing dresses! crazy expensive though. =/ but, i suppose it's well worth it!

another man's isn't the most expensive vintage tore i've come across, maybe middle tier? it makes up for it in great quality and service though. but yeah, i know what you mean.

aug 26-28, approx. email me and we can work out the details. :)

The dress you put on hold is lovely but I must agree that its a lot of money. Some how, I have a feeling I've ran into the likes at a thrift store before. And definitely chop off the top part.

Those dresses are awesome. I'm going to come steal your black lace one!

Ben said...

where's your man whore? is he the one in the poofy lace dress? (OWNED) I say amputate that bitch, what has it done for you? Keep the salvageable parts of the top for extra fabric on the skirt. I'd come to the blogger meet up, and give you tee shirts with my picture on them, I live really far away though. I just watched D gray man, holy shit holy shit awesome.

Amelia said...

You should get the black lacy dress. It's gorgeous and rather Prada-esque. If you don't get it, I will walk a couple thousand miles and steal it.

Mimi said...

The store looks very interesting.I like the green dress.

jaime said...

0.0 it looks as if i'm actually wearing the dress.
you suck! now i know how the jew feels.

and i'm not your man bitch! if anything, you're my man bitch. i only use you for your teacher-seducing powers. so, HA!

Arabelle said...

jaime, stfu. and i don't seduce any teachers! i don't seduce anyone except for nerds.


whore.

shoebox said...

All of the dresses looked great.
An dI would take off the top part of the dress, if it doesn´t fit you it will look better as a skirt.

bewkworm said...
