mink-pink-dress_vintage-gloves4Mink Pink dress & vintage 80′s fingerless gloves via Nasty Gal. H&M jacket. Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties

Extremely happy with my first purchases from Nasty Gal.  Loving the 90′s vibe of this Mink Pink “Winona” dress, and although it’s sold out on Nasty Gal, Revolve Clothing has the dress in medium sizes only.  I always try to toughen up my look if I’m wearing a floral print or girly-esque (do you like my new word?) outfit, and thought the leather fingerless gloves and jacket would be the right complements.  As I had previously mentioned, I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of fingerless gloves for some time now, and was excited to find these rad vintage 80′s leather ones for only $22.  Free People is selling canary yellow ones that look similar to mine for $48.

After much consideration, I’ve decided to spare my hair and not get a body wave.  My semi-waves came as a result of twisting my hair in a bun.  Though sleeping with my hair wrapped tightly in a bun is not the most comfortable or ideal option, I figure it’s the easiest and low maintenance thing to do.  Speaking of low maintenance, I’m reminded of this exchange from When Harry Met Sally

Harry:  “There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.”
Sally:  “Which one am I?”
Harry:  “You’re the worst kind. You’re high maintenance but you think you’re low maintenance.”

Crap, I think I fall in the semi-worst kind.  Slightly above medium maintenance, but think I’m low maintenance. :)

    Looove this outfit! I try to do the same with girly-esque clothes (great word!) unless I’m feeling super-romantic. I was looking for similar gloves all last year- couldn’t find any under $50. Glad they are coming down in price!

    This outfit is perfect. I love the MinkPink dress, the exposed zipper totally evens out the cute floral print, and I love your boots and rad gloves xx

    YOU.ARE.A.STUNNER that should’ve been your title lol. For some reason not combing my hair makes it wavy! haha but my mother has naturally wavy hair (weird: I know!) so perhaps THATS the real reason? hehehe

    Love the dress. Its the second time I’ve seen it around the blogosphere! But its a beaut. As for low-high maintenance, I THINK I’m low but………….. ;)

    Have a fab weekend sweets :)
