That evening I wore my favorite vintage necklace, by now I've owned it for 13 years and I am NEVER getting rid of it! I want to have it dipped in gold. The earrings are also vintage and I bought them at a garage sale in Yonkers. They go so well with the necklace, so I am really disappointed that they are among a group of jewelry that has gone missing this summer.
I had so much fun on this cruise around the Hudson that I failed to be a shutterbug this evening! I bumped into a group of dance friends I hadn't seen in awhile and we just laughed and danced the night away in between catching up. My friends Elektra and Sahazha danced that night and Layla Isis (above) was the guest dancer of the evening. My yellow pencil dress is by Moda International, carried in the Victoria's Secret catalogue, but I got mine on Ebay ;) I also bought my cummerbund on ebay for $5!

And below, well, here they are again...
My beautiful friend Lizzie being silly with some guacamole and pico de gallo.This is the same beauty who went with me to Layaly, from the pictures shared in my last post, "La Bruja Buena".
And here I am with my muñeca Melissa Lopez of Fun.Fit.Chic and Lizzie Boo! I'm a HUGE fan of leopard print and the "shirt" I am wearing here is actually a dress. Most club dresses are so thin and easy to crunch up a bit that they can double as I tunic. In some cases, some club dresses are too short to use as dresses (depending on the junk in your trunk and preference) but if you really love it, it most likely looks great as a tunic! This particular dress I can wear both ways as long as when worn as a dress I only use it for photo shoots because if I dance in it, it rides up. The price was oh so right that I didn't even care and as you scroll down you'll see how versatile it is!
I really love belts and in this case it was just what the dress needed and the red added color to this otherwise neutral look!
In this next set of pics, taken by Eric Mayr, you can see how the straps of the dress can be manipulated to make a whole new look! This time around I wore the dress without the fishnets and wore a solid black elastic cinch belt. My earrings are gold with coral beads and I am wearing a red and gold glass beaded bracelet with the same Bebe shoes. I really love how you can wear this dress with the straps fully on, with one strap off the shoulder, or go for a complete off the shoulder look!
Thank you for reading and remember to check your signs lest you want to be taken pics of your hot outfits at the impound!
Besos, Beijos, Filakia, MUAH!
