A light layer of chiffon keeps me cool...
in more ways than one!
Look at these big ol' sleeves! What's not to love?
This chiffon kimono style gypsy lookin' slightly Stevie Nick's channeling number is courtesy of a cheapie store I found down in Chinatown.
(When I say "courtesy", I do not mean it was free...although it might as well been it was such a steal.
I really just mean, "courtesy" as in, thanks to my eagle eyes I found this crap store).
Just goes to show I should not write off Chinatown and its fishy stank just yet...
apparently there's still some goodies to be found down there
(just not fake bags made by kids in Guanzhou. Ok so they're still down there too...I just refuse to buy them. Sorry Mom, sorry sister...ain't gonna support child labor or rippin' off the talented designers in my industry. Come visit me, and go there yourself!)
And no...that is NOT a CHER pin on my bag-as a homeless woman on 8th Ave thought it was.
That is freakin' TOMMY LEE in all his Motley Crue glory of the early 80s.
Do you ever find yourself in a part of town you really really despise, only to find yourself sweetly surprised by something on its streets?
But this particular jaunt around Chinatown...and BAM! I got myself a chiffon, huge sleeved, toss on topper and its an ever-so-perfect addition to my fondness of layers.
