For me, giving up is harder than trying. -Kanye West

I wore this cream vintage dress to my last day of New York Fashion Week. This dress reminds me of old Hollywood with the draping neckline. I bought the dress from a vintage shop here in New York and took it straight to a seamstress for alterations. The dress before fell a little below my knees. I wanted to appear taller and elongate my legs so I had them cut off about a foot. It quickly became a modern vintage mini dress. The all silk dress had a snake skin print if you pay close attention. I cinched it with a braided, skinny pastel pink belt, a brown vintage clutch, and architectural Jessica Simpson wedge heels. I decided to wear the wedges because they had the same snake skin print as the dress. It was the perfect combination. While at Lincoln Center, I ran into Mr. Newton, who takes eye opening photos for Harpers Bazaar Magazine. He was explaining to me the moment I saw him how some women, the way dress and the way they carry themselves makes it appear as if they are levitating. I know EXACTLY what he meant. He said I was one of them, which is probably one of the best compliments I've ever received. Oh how I adore that man so much. By the way, I have to add that I love Rihanna's new song Diamonds.
