One more dress to for today’s Valentino love fest! I managed to download these images from farfetch before the dress sold out (tears…) so I guess now I can just day dream about it without the damage to my non-existent savings.  Thanks, Universe. 

Le sigh.

Wrapping up some Friday Fashion with a bang!

Okay so these Pre-Fall 2017 looks from Moschino are more sci-fi than pure sci, but I’m still loving them. I would especially love to wear either of the top two dresses while giving a talk on the Big Bang - guaranteed to make an impact.*
