Outfit: Shame on You (If You Can't Dance, Too)

 I already listen to so much disco from day to day, but I've been playing disco endlessly to get in the mood for a new dance piece my friend Chloe is choreographing in May. I am a dancer and also a costumer in the piece and it's called Divine Disco. I'll tell you guys more about it as we have our second rehearsal this coming weekend! I am so excited to mix disco costumes with the divine costumes of historical religious figures of Mary & Gabriel the angel. It's a very interesting concept and I feel that Chloe and I met one night at a party last year was fate! Thank you for including me, Chloe! The performance is at the IMPACT festival on Mother's Day weekend. More to be announced soon! XO
 A little more about this vintage dress I found last week: I was thrifting at Family Thrift store in Logan Square Chicago with my friend Kristin and this adorable cute older lady was holding the dress up on the hanger & I spotted it and started smiling. She looked at me and told me it belongs with me even though the lace was old and ripped up in some spots. I bought it for $10 and went home to sew up the silk lace tears. It fits me perfectly and I don't even have to suck in or take small breaths! It's a miracle! :)

Goodness, that dress is simply divine! The soft coffee lace with the smooth truffle silk chiffon is really a dreamy combination. How lucky you were to find such a lovely piece that fits you so perfectly! ❤

Eeek, you look absolutely magical! You're like a coffee dessert in fashion form... which is kind of the best thing ever. And the fact that you got this for ten bucks and fixed it up... way awesome. You are my idol.
