fine lines

Sunday, January 22, 2012

There is a fine line between fashion and costume. Today's look, straddles the border. I found these crazy sequin capri pants in Hollywood a few weeks ago. They first caught my eye out of intrigue and then I decided to go through with the purchase because they had vintage tags attached to them. I am quite the sucker for vintage finds these days! I doubt I'll keep them, considering they are the most uncomfortable & impractical thing I own, but I at least wanted to take some fun pictures in them :)

I thoroughly enjoyed this photo session! The grand total for this outfit was $25.94!!!
