Outfits

Dreams unwind; love’s a state of mind.







The combination of sheer black, draped fabric and lots of lace makes me think of one of my mom’s favorite female vocalists, Stevie Nicks. Though my outfit is a lot less dramatic than her legendary getups, I had Fleetwood Mac stuck in my head all day. It’s not all that uncommon for me – I’m actually quite a fan of their music. For some reason, I get teased a lot for that, but I couldn’t care less.

Since I made this dress up as I went along, I’m now wondering if it was a subconscious influence from my playlist. Sometimes that happens! Either way, I’m very happy with the outcome. I’ve actually worn this dress twice since I made it, in different ways. I just forgot to take a picture of the first one. I’m sure it will be in heavy rotation – I love how comfortable it is. Comfort, believe it or not, is really important to me. It’s the same reason I carry emergency flats in my bag!

  1. i can't say no to lace dresses. if you made a limited run for postlapsaria, i'd probably be tempted to buy one for every day of the week. hahaha (sad, but true!)

    also, i don't mean to pester you about this, but are you going to be posting the Renegade items soon?

    xo,

  2. I LOVE Fleetwood Mac, and I think Stevie Nicks is the coolest. Her music is haunting and therapeutic, all at the same time. I love this little style homage to her πŸ™‚

  3. You look lovely! I love the dress, and would definitely purchase one should you make it available on Postlapsaria. Please update your readers if you do!

    P.S. I also love Fleetwood Mac, haters be damned ;o)

  4. I love the dress! I really should start doing more with what I wear during the summer, but when it is in the high 90s-100 I really just want to lay around in a tank top and shorts. It really wrecks my creativity fashion wise. My mom was also a Fleetwood Mac fan so I grew up listening to them. I also occasionally find myself listening to them now, I can still remember the lyrics even though I heard it years ago.

  5. wow, you are amazingly talented. that lace dress is stunning. i love how you paired it with the sheer black cardigan and nude pumps. very simple and chic.

  6. hey keiko! I was recently at a Michael's store in the yarn section and I noticed a Debbie Stoller instructional book and one of the models in it was your doppelganger. Unless, was it you?

  7. i love that dress, its so unlike other lace dresses out there now! the layers are very unique. definitely make more and let me know! also having major hair envy..

  8. Yes PLEASE make one for the shop, it is SO beautiful! I raced down to see where you got it from knowing that there was a 95% chance you made it. Haha, one can dream right? So if you made another one I COULD have it! That would be amazing πŸ™‚

  9. Even though I'm a college student paying off loans I would buy this dress in a heartbeat. Please add it to the store!!

  10. i need this outfit in my life! πŸ˜‰ especially that dress… love the stevie nicks vibe. fleetwood mac is one of my favourites. people tease me about it, too! it's shame… i think their music is fabulous. πŸ™‚

  11. The first thing I noticed is that your hair is down, looks great. The second thing being that beautiful lace dress! You should definitely make some for Postlapsaria, I would buy one in a second.

    you should definitely make the dress for postlapsaria! it's gorgeous (& so are you πŸ™‚ ). Fleetwood mac & stevie nicks are fantastic…

  13. This dress is so beautiful, it could be a wedding dress. If you sell them I will buy one! Dead serious. It's to die for!

    No need to defend a love for Fleetwood Mac. They're awesome! Stevie Nicks rocked some pretty awesome boho looks in her day. I am likewise inspired. πŸ™‚

  14. Personally I would love to see that dress offered in your store. The real question is how much damage it would do to my carefully budgeting "fun stuff" spending… πŸ™‚

  15. Hi! You're absolutely darling! πŸ™‚ Would you mind following me? Please? I'm really trying to get some recognition & it would be an HONOR if you followed me. I just LOVE your looks. πŸ™‚

  16. Yes, yes , you must make that dress for your shop. I am old enuf to be your Mom and I listened to Fleetwood Mac too. I am a pretty young looking fifty and I would totally rock that dress. I could make that work. I am half Japanese and Black and my Aunt's name is Keiko! You are such a beautiful girl embrace your Asian features cause you are gorgeous.

  17. Ok I loved the dress so much, I've featured you in my latest blog post. Hope that's ok (of course I've linked back to you!) .. but please let me know if you'd like me to edit in any way.
