Here, Sailor

Dress: Vintage
Hat: Forever 21
Hoodie: Gap
Socks: Sock Dreams
Boots: Nicole via Ebay
WHAT ship, puzzled at sea, cons for the true reckoning?
Or, coming in, to avoid the bars, and follow the channel, a perfect pilot needs?
Here, sailor! Here, ship! take aboard the most perfect pilot,
Whom, in a little boat, putting off, and rowing, I, hailing you, offer.
-Walt Whitman


A hoodie thrown over my sailor dress gave my outfit a dose of much-needed sloppy modernity. Oh, if you didn't hear, Christmas is Saturday! *dance dance*

  3. Ok so I already commented on this on Chictopia saying it reminds me of a uniform over here in Vietnam and how much I love it. You've inspired me to hunt for some read ribbon :)

  15. I had a dream about you last night. We were talking on skype and I suddenly stepped out of the screen and into your kitchen. You seemed quite unsettled (freaked out!), in contrast to Darin who remained calm and graciously invited me to stay for a cuppa tea.
