Ok first things first--I NEVER wear things like this, I am not cool w/my stomach being on view this much. (There, I am telling you I'm human, I actually have some insecurities. Just I realize I've got a lot more PLUSSES outweighing the few minuses so I don't dwell too much on these few insecurities.) But for the sake of time travel--that being me dressing up and warping my mind back to 1970 something--I was willing to brave my insecurity a little bit in order to do this Dusty Rose Vintage 'shoot.
Ever since I put this top on, everytime I think about it, or look at the pictures, I just want to hitchhike out to San Fransisco...all the while singing that one line, "If you're going to San Fransisco...be sure to wear some flowers in your hair."
And of course, I completely and most definitely want to put on some patchouli! Duh--what other fragrance would I wear with this? I talk about my love of earthy patchouli all the time!
Ah, but seriously--this top is so cool. Too bad I don't have the confidence to wear something like this on a regular weekend day...say walking around Williamsburg. Yeah right! But all you skinny, flat ab ladies out there, GO FOR IT! I think you could rock this 10x better than I could...just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
(clearly I forgot my flowers)

And yes, by far my favorite photo from the 'shoot...Nikka and I...this is such a great picture; I can't decide what to do with it. It's so fun. I wish all my days were spent just lounging with the girls on rooftops, soaking up the sun, looking cool like we do here (ah but alas, this is all just a game of dress-up)
Note: Nikka's crochet top is still available at DRV's shop too!
