This past weekend I attended the Justin Timberlake and Jay Z concert at Yankee Stadium along with (pretty much) the rest of Manhattan. So, as most of you already know, ‘shit was cray”. Jay Z is a given, but I was skeptical of Mr. Timberlake. Much to my surprise, I had forgotten about how many of his songs I have loved over the years. Namely, the one that goes “Senorita, I feel for you. You deal with things, that you don’t have to…” Justin Timberlake is basically a big nerd that would have probably been working at Microsoft if he wasn’t such a talented musician… which makes him that much cooler. Nerdy cool: Yes, yes, YES!
Which brings me to todays post, a Vintage Victor Costa Peplum Dress that is (you guessed it) up for sale on my eBay Store.
This Sassy Senorita Number features one of my favorite recent trends: Peplum. Peplum gives you an hour glass silhouette, even if you don’t have one. And if you DO have the curves, it just showcases them more. Peplum = Awesome.
The jewelry is mostly vintage, except for the Forever 21 “Aztec” Gold Plate Necklace. The fan is from a Chinese Market; it makes an amazing noise when you open it (like a real flamenco dancers’ fan does). I embellished it with rhinestone encrusted roses for a Burning Man costume last year… check it out:
The hat is an amazing piece I bought for my Kentucky Derby Themed Birthday Party a few years back… you can see more pics of that party here:
The shoe is super versatile because of its deep red and purple hues; it can be worn with pinks, reds, and purples. It is by Louis Vuitton (of course).
