Caillianne- Union Jack Flag + Vintage










Dress- Vintage Vivienne Westwood flag collection dress from Nomad Vintage from The Chelsea Garage in NY
Belt- Silver Balenciaga belt from The Balencaiga store in NY
Sunglasses- Limited edition Ray-Ban Sunglasses gifted from Ray-Ban
Necklace- Vintage Carole Tanenbaum necklace from The Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection in Toronto
Bag-  Blue faux fur Prada bag from the Prada store in Toronto
Shoes- Sparkly Silver Miu Miu clogs from Neiman Marcus in NY

The Look:  Union Jack + Vintage

Fun Fact: Essie just sent us all of their new Fall and Winter nail colors and we are obsessed! I just couldn't wait for winter, so I am wearing the color "Size Matters" and it's the perfect red. It looks kinda vampire-esque and mysterious and it goes perfect with my vintage Westwood dress. It's not in stores yet, so keep your eyes out for it! Our friend Katie owns Nomad Vintage and she has the BEST vintage ever! You can visit her in the Chelsea Garage on the weekend or by appointment... she is the coolest! I couldn't get over this Vivienne Westwood dress when I saw it. It reminded me of her Union Jack flag carpet she designed for the Rug Company. It's a parachute type dress with strips of blue cotton canvas sewn to the Union Jack flag. I think it's from the early 90's or late 80's and it even has fake white printed paint on it! Pin It Now!

oh my that dress is not so easy to style because of the movement and the colors! love that you took it all the way, you have used so many over the top textures, but that is the key here: i cannot get enough of those prada bags and it looks perfect with the glitter clogs. a belt is an absolute essential must! such an incredible look

Twins said...

Yeah, the colors are perfect!! Great idea to put a belt to make it more feminine!

you're posing in a field of boners. ;) glitter, fur, red lips, rad print. hell yes.

blue roses said...

you give that dress such movement and flair; it is a wonderfully beautiful piece, but definitely needs a strong attitude behind it. such confidence.

i will be on the prowl for that nail color, i am always looking for a bright red.
