Ta da! So I took the AA mesh dress I spoke about in Sheer Genius and found a way to cover up my bits in a most delicious fashion. I decided that instead of wearing something underneath that I would do something a little more bawdy. It took me about 5 hours total to construct this pattern-to-finish, and boy was it worth it! Back matches the front. Please stay tuned for the DIY post….

P.S. 25 feels effing awesome.

Just a little from my bday… cool basics from AA & Awang, a bedazzler, fashion/mag coffee table books, and a pair of Horace leather pants I bought from OakNYC (elation!)

    Hi Fricky!
    thx so much! The dress is definitely an optical allusion. I’m going to be posting a DIY entry next week so everyone else (who dares to wear!) will get an idea of how i did it.

    I um… didn’t wear anything under the dress. It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it was!
    Apparently there is tape for situations like this, but I never found any :(
