Sometimes Love Is Not Enough.

Grey Dress (worn underneath): Modcloth.
Cameo Necklace: Gift from my grandmother.
Spiked Heels: TJ Maxx.

I left all my pretty/fancy dresses at home which has really been bumming me out lately. I'm craving to dress super retro and feminine but none of the dresses I packed are much of those characteristics. So, thrilled was I when I received this Eshakti dress in the mail. Eeee, it screams retro 60's perfection! I did a bit of a beehive bump with my hair and more eyeliner for that 1960's look. I've been listening to Lana Del Rey so much lately (hence the title of this post) that it's no wonder I'm head over heels for that period right now!

This dress is made of a sturdy jacquard material that I found was structural but still moved well. It made twirling for these pictures quite fun, heh. And of course, a selling point for me is any dress that has pockets. Literally the perfect dress that I'm so blessed to have in my closet♥

I have a fairly exciting weekend ahead of me. Tomorrow morning I'm going thrift shopping with Jessica, and then in the afternoon my parents, sister, and grandmother are coming up to Kent to spend the day! On Sunday I'm going to see Perks of Being a Wallflower with Erin, and then by that time the weekend will be over. Hope it's a swell one :)

Have a lovely weekend you gals!

With much love, Lauren.

That dress is so lovely! It certainly looks fun to twirl in!

Hope that you had a blast thrifting! You will have to let me know how Perks is - I just read it for the first time for my Young Adult Lit class, but I wasn't that big of fan. I think I'll like the movie a whole lot more because you'll really get a better feel for the characters.

xoxo,
Laura

This dress is great on you. I love how classy you dress for a girl of your age. Also congrats on taking photos on campus! You are getting brave and hopefully next time we can hang out longer.

ALSO where in Kent/Akron are you seeing Perks? I heard it was only playing in Cleveland.

The way you've layered the two dresses is perfect-- it looks like you're wearing some fabulous vintage, 60s mod frock.

Aw it's such a lovely dress! The silhouette is perfect. I really love the cameo necklace paired with it and those amazing studded heels. I wish I had a pair of heels like that to wear on my birthday!
