Reveling in Rachel Antonoff

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Rachel Antonoff is easily my favourite designer. It's the only designer my boyfriend knows the name of. That says something! I've gushed about her to him so much that he knows her by name. I have 2 of her dresses and would love to buy more. *Note - it was a very windy day, hence the flipped collar and crazy hair!

Acquiring this dress was a bit of an ordeal however. I had just gotten a job at a pizza place last summer, but it was only 2 days a week (about $160 weekly.) I was also saving up for a trip to British Columbia and was on a spending freeze. I had come across this dress in a size 6 (my size!) in on an online swap group for $250. EEK! Not so much the price, because it's totally worth it, but just the unlikelihood! I e-mailed the girl right away and asked if she would take payment installments but it had sold. NO. I was crushed. Then in February, I came across one in a size 2 on eBay. Totally not my size, and it actually had some stains down the front of it. They were even visible in the eBay photos.

I have a bit of an active imagination so I try not to think about what it could be. But... my dress! For $120! I still had no money, so I asked if she could hold it until I got paid. Then, ta da! Mine. I just have to do a lot of wiggling to get into it. In my opinion, if it zips, it fits! I don't believe in sizes. Sizes schmizes.

Crazy part was, I saw another one listed a few months later (in a size 2 again!) and I also bid on that one. I'm a wee bit of a nutter methinks.

I originally was going to style it with wine tights and Ferragamos (I literally bought the exact outfit that calivintage wore) but what's the point? I'm not breaking any new ground by wearing the exact same thing another blogger wore (although it does look really nice styled that way.) So I tried this green tights look. It's a bit Christmas-y but I think I like it. Maybe I'll wear it for the holidays. To the bar at least. This dress is way too short to wear around my family! I guess that's what happens when you buy things a couple sizes too small.

  2. You look amazing in that dress O_o It's like it was tailored for you. <3 I love the colors and print! I have to say the last outfit really resonated with me. Such an expert mix colors and I love that the same pattern is used, it's just one of them is turned in a different direction. Clever! :D

  4. You both are too sweet! I was worried it looked bad since it is too small for me but you are definitely giving me confidence to wear it out and rock it!

  5. I have no idea why, but that first photo strikes me as very Stockard Channing/Rizzo from Grease. Maybe it's because this outfit screams "badass", I'm really not sure haha. Whatever the reason, this whole look is awesome on you!
