Dress: Vintage, from hong kong vintage. Boots: Corral Boots from Mexico. Clutch: ASOS, last seen here. Necklace: My Grandmother-in-law's. Earrings: Gifted. Rings: My Grandmother's, Tiffany, custom by Diamonds Direct.

I recently had the pleasure of celebrating my friend Sonya Barnes at the 10 year anniversary party for her image consulting firm, Harris & Barnes.  This vintage frock from hong kong vintage has been stowed away in my closet since I purchased it almost a year ago.  I always imagined wearing it to a Cinco de Mayo party or some similar festivity, but it jumped right out at me on this particular evening.  Perhaps not the most logical pairing (some things remain), the boots made a leap for me too.  And the clutch.  I like it when my clothes jump out at me, and I don't have to jump at them or jump up and down, because I am frustrated with them.  How about you?  Do you agree?  Do certain things in your wardrobe jump out at you?  More here from hong kong vintage.

Thanks so much for being here!  
My very best, Whitley
