Flowers bloom in desolate places







wearing thrifted dress, RenegadeLovers studded waist belt, DIY studded bag from SM dept. store & SoulePhenomenon wedges

What a way to start this year's high-heel-wearing but by starting it with these killer wedges. Sometime last year, still dizzy from my Gareth Pugh cravings and with no thousands of dollars to spend, I opted to confess my undying attraction for them to Nicole from SoulePhenomenon so she could make my dreams come true. And that she did. Expect every outfit shot with these to be taken from the side because only then can you really appreciate the black and white goodness of these.. and they are sky high, so vertigo should be expected. And because I am so graceful on heels (insert sarcasm here), I wore them backstage for a little bit, with iron bits and pieces sticking out of the floor, ready to plunge me to my death. But since I had already managed to stub my toe on one of them things, while I was still in my havaianas, I figured, I didn't have much else to lose..

The show was yet another amazing flurry of panicked yelling, shoving, pulling, tugging, zipping, buttoning, tucking, grabbing and what not.. it was like 25 minutes of heaven and hell, and nothing compares to it. Once we were done, the mood had gone back to relaxed, cocktails and appetizers were enjoyed and I was ready to head home for an amazing steak dinner, followed by some tunes by Mandalay and then topping the night off with the Ali G movie. Seriously, out of all three of Sacha Baron Cohen's characters, I think Ali G has got to be my favorite still.

Big shout out to Dexter Alazas of Stylefirm. x
