Daily Outfit: 5th February 2010 — Plus, Win A Violetville Vintage Gift Certificate!
Bonjour, bonjour! This is my outfit from Friday.
Walking around the East Village in winter is kind of eerie, there’s hardly anyone around & it’s very quiet — totally the opposite of how it is in my neighbourhood in summer! But then, it’s also bitterly cold… Brrrr!
I love the colour of this building, it’s like peppermint sorbet.
I am wearing…

I’m laughing so hard in this picture because I’m standing in front of a bus shelter showing an ad for toilet paper! Chloe said, “Don’t worry! Your dress is so huge that no one will even be able to tell!” The girl was RIGHT!
My nailpolish is OPI DS Exclusive. It’s a really pretty, super-sparkly cranberry.
I had a little old lady come up to me while I was wearing this & tell me how much she loved my outfit — maybe it reminded her of dresses she used to wear?! Anyway, it was a beautiful moment in the East Village.
As I was standing on a street corner having these photos taken, a guy stopped his van & yelled out the window, “ARE YOU LADY GAGA?” Time for a hair change, perhaps… !
Thank you again to Tina of Violetville Vintage & don’t forget to enter to win a $50 gift certificate!
