CHEAP GLAM THRILLS

I've been trying to plan a shopping and lunch date with Raez of Cheap Thrills since I got home from Europe, and after much scheduling and rescheduling, we finally hooked up! After discovering our original shopping destination, Ruby Slipper Vintage Shoppe, was closed (for no apparent reason), we decided to head over to the nearest Value Village to see what we could find!
Raez found some awesome florals and the most amazing cobalt blue blazer. Fabfabfab.
We then headed over to Starbucks for some delish smoothies and chocochip banana cake!
After our treats we had an impromptu photoshoot in the parking lot. Glam? Whatevs, we made it work! Raez wore a Gap vest, random tank Aldo bag, vintage Levi shorts, and thrifted shoes. Isn't she amazinggorgeoussupercool?!
Wearing H&M shirtdress, cocktail ring from The Bay, Le Ch√Ęteau tights, Seduction boots.
Bought this amazing shirtdress at an H&M in Amsterdam. Totally Christopher Kane Resort 2010, no?
He used images of nuclear test explosions from the fifties to the seventies to create the bold prints and was attracted to the bright chemical colors. Sinister but beautiful, as he said. I love the juxtaposition of the toxic mushroom cloud print against a pretty babydoll dress.
Finally a pic of the two of us! This girl is a total babe. Go check out her blog right now for fierce outfits and her amazing photography! Go! xo Antonia.

  4. You two are gorgeous. That dress just shows up EVERYWHERE these days, making me upset there's no H&M where I am! And that is true about the Sinister but Beautiful. I think combinations like that are really interesting.

  8. i just hopped over from her blog to yours! i have the same dress and i have to say, love it to pieces. it's a very serene scene but kinda dark at the same time. i love that contrast. christopher kane has been a genius with graphic prints lately, the baboons, the mushroom clouds. it's all too good.

    you look amazing!

  42. I'm wondering what size you got, small or medium?
