Pleasantville...Another lovely vintage find!

Found this dress at the vintage store, Replay on 19th, did a little nip and tuck on it and ...Voila! I now feel like I am a transplant from the Pleasantville movie set (of course in my movie version, heaps of fairy dust would be sprinkled on the country's race relations--it was the 50s after all)
Vintage dress, H&M basket purse, Ray Ban sunglasses
Belt from J.Crew

Hat from Zara, shoes from Reiss
Hope you all have a good week!

Ava Drake blog in the news!!!!!

Well maybe not news exactly but on and Manaluchi Bridal Magazine! I heard that publicity begets publicity so here is to hoping this brings me closer to Oprah and Gayle finding me...

Look of the Day: Fierce Fringe

 / MARCH 21, 2012 3:00 AM Read More: Community, Look Of The Day, Street Style
One way to rock Spring's rocker chick-inspired fringe trend? Just look to Fab reader Ava Drake, who donned a dip-dyed fringe top with cropped trouser pants as a cool complement. To keep the fierce edge going, she added ultrafeathered Brian Atwood heels into the mix, as well as a superstructured briefcaselike tote. The outfit is on point, daring, but totally wearable, too.
Congrats, Ava Drake!

Look of the Day: Spring Flirt

 / MARCH 14, 2012 3:00 AM Read More: Community, Look Of The Day, Street Style
Fab reader Ava Drake looked super sweet in an effortlessly laid-back daytime getup. First, she paired a softwhite crop top with a printed Diane von Furstenberg skirt. Then, she added a crossbody bag, weave Prada sandals, and a pretty floral hair embellishment, which kept every angle of this ensemble light, airy, and Spring fresh. The flash of skin, the colorful skirt pattern, and girlie accessories really made this outfit a warm weather standout.
Congrats Ava Drake!
