months ago i reluctantly tried on a blue tiered Lauren Conrad for Target dress at Rag-O-Rama..i think that girl is a joke but the dress was way to beautiful to pass up. plus it was super cheap-$12.00 i think..anyways the second i put it on i knew i didn't care what the tag said, it was MINE! i've worn it many times now to several different events, here's some photos of myself and the dress in action:

i've always adored my friend's style and from time to time shown off their looks here on LadyFLASHBACK. would like to start doing that more often, spotlighting some pals who i think have great personal style. for example, Kristie Jo, a college lady friend who's wardrobe is something to be coveted. KJO came into town for a Halloween celebration that could never be forgotten. on the last day of her visit we went vintage perusing over at Highland Row Antiques and her outfit caught my eye, where's whyyy:::
check out her vintage mink&&leather biker jacket! can you imagine riding a motorcycle and those little furry tails blowing in the wind?? so dreamy. she found this at a thrift hot spot in Alabama we both frequently visit, while i have scored some great stuff there..i think this jacket takes the price!
bow//jacket//top//locket: Vintage, purse: Vintage Fendi scored at a shop we both worked at "Twice as Nice" for a mere $150.00, some deal right?!?!, kicks: Target ((!!!)), sunnies: Kate Spade
mustard has long been a favorite color choice for both kjo and myself, goes so well with our dark features and really goes with EVERYTHING!
even the thought of her looking into moving to atlanta thrills my ♥♥♥♥, where she will always have a special place! thanks for the visit Kristie!
another lady with great style is actually a friend of my boyfriend who came into town for a couple days with her BF on a route from NYtoCA. from the moment we met i knew she had superb taste and i was CORRECT.
she wore this out the day i took her and Chris around for thrifting, record shopping and Little Five browsing. she almost bought a mint condition vintage Pucci dress but the fitting was off, nonetheless, it further proved her eye for style!
rabbit fur jacket: Juicy Couture, purse: vintage-loved the sterling deer emblem on the front, wish i would have taken a detail shot.. shoes: Aldo
it was nice hanging with a couple for a few days and going on double dates, which i L♥VE :))

you could say im a little behind posting Halloween photos, but then again wouldn't it be called a Flashback??
plus, in my defense i dressed up a billion times, as usual, so i had to gather all the photos. i can truly say these are DEF worth the wait, lets begin with
THE ZOMBIE WALK
mother nature totally shat on us this day with the worst rain storm yet. but that didn't stop fellow Zombie friends and i from trekking throughout Atlanta scaring the innocent and looking classily UNdead.
other Zombies left a trail of blood, not only in the cemetery but ALLLLLL over the city. didn't feel that bad about the vandalization since it was being washed away by the rain..and it was nuts seeing 'blood' on cars, walls, Marta stations and elsewhere. you had to be there to fully understand!
such a classy UNdead man, right!?!
Harmony was the sacrificial bride. she didn't mind.
my Zombie Attire Deetz:
dress: Wet Seal, jacket: Target, tights: UO, boots&bow: Vintage
PS//above photos taken with a $1.00 american flag 35MM disposable courtesy of Cornman!
moving along to Zombie Prom, hosted by Sorry Darlin as a part of the last SQAURE PEGZ ever!
Sarah and i were loaned "prom" dresses from Rosa of BodegaATL. mine was detailed with bright squiggly velvet and had tulle underneath that make it fluffy at the bottom which was much fun to dance in!
a little background story on my headgear...
it was found at a Cracker Barrel-weird huh?? in North Carolina on a roadtrip with my mom and brother. you know how they each have a gift shop built in and while you are waiting for your table its nice to look around at crap you wouldn't ever buy. BUT to my surprise they had a fabulous Halloween section with all these great headbands, mini hats, and clips. at $9.99 there was no hesitation, just was hard deciding which one to pick! i decided on this all black one that has a spider on a web with pheasant feathers sprouting out the top and a great veil.
Kimerie, Myself and H$ caught posing for another photo by Zoe of Sorry Darlin.
crafty Harmony tucked spiders into her fishnets, so clever!
Zombie Queen DJ Minchy Minch and her fellow Promettes looking sharp and dead-like. except for me, i look real ALIVE!
my Zombie Prom Attire Deetz:
dress&purse: Vintage, tights&tennies: UO, ring: GuiltGroupe-?
Friday, October 29th was LazerBeam Kitty at the Highland Inn Ballroom-one of my fav monthly electro dance parties held a Helloween Bash i simply could not miss!
BlackWidow, OctopusMan, ZombieCircusRingLeader, Mia(UMA) of PulpFiction
squealed with excitement when i found this vintage dress at JunkMan's Daughter in L5P, i thought "How Perfect" since i was searching for Black//Red things that day for my BlackWidow idea. originally i was going to wear the headgear and a black dress with a DIY red glitter diamond .. but then upon discovering this piece decided to play on the spider and widow aspects of my idea. additionally i was THRILLED to wear my newly purchased black lipstick. but upon applying i realized it hardly showed up :(( so i improvised with black eyeliner, the lipstick and a shade of red. the outcome was A-Ok with me!
Elizabeth makes a magnificent ring leader, even in dead form! killed by a runway, pissed off elephant she rose from the dead to boogie down till early morning!!
"oh, Reginald...how i miss you dearly, you will never be forgotten.
however, your live insurance policy is quite enjoyable...le sighhh"
my Black Widow Attire Deetz:
dress&necklace: Vintage, gloves: JunkMans Daughter, bracelets: assorted H&M//Vintage
well, thats the jist of my Nov//Oct celebration of Halloween. EXCEPT a few other parties that i will be posting separately, and one of them You Don't Want To Miss. its actually the night of Oct. 30th when i was involved in a production//fashion show at MJQ-Electroport to Inferno...stay tuned!

found a couple photos on TheStreetHearts.com that really caught my eye, specifically the DENIM!
i've spotted a couple of these long, oversized jackets in stores and wondered if it could be pulled off. and the answer is YES. the right person can sport any look, this is definitely a tricky one, but damn-soGOOD!
what a fabulous festival outfit, the tights//sock layering is real creative!
found a really great vintage "Shane" acid-washed bag recently through BodegaATL and its now become my sidekick. love the softness, toting capability and great vintage color-so dreamy!
it'd be real cool to DIY myself a pair of jeans, been researching the process and it doesn't seem to hard. any of you all try acid-washing?.?.
