V I R G I N M A R Y S














NO, NO. THIS ISN'T A PREVIEW OF MY WEDDING DRESS OR MY TAKE ON MADONNA'S WHITE TRASH WEDDING FIASCO. (A LOOK I TOTALLY THINK BILLY IDOL OWNED ALOT HARDER) IT'S MY NEW FAVORITE SUMMER DRESS I FOUND TODAY AT MY NUMERO UNO PLACE TO SHOP ALL THINGS VINTAGE.  FIVE MINUTES, SEVENTY DOLLARS AND ONE PAIR OF SCISSORS LATER AND I WAS CONVINCED IT WAS LOOKING A LOT LESS BRIDAL AND A LOT MORE READY TO WEAR. THAT IS UNTIL I FOUND MYSELF STARING INQUISITIVELY AT MY SCORNED LACE AND DECIDED TO TRY IT ON AS A VEIL. (ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS YOU REALLY HOPE NO ONE POPS OVER UNEXPECTANTLY TO CATCH YOU STARING AT YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR WEARING A WEDDING DRESS WITH NO IMMEDIATE PLANS OF WEDLOCK... BECAUSE YOU LOOK CRAZY) AFTER LAUGHING AT MYSELF FOR BEING SUCH A WEIRDO I TOOK IT OFF AND THEN HAD ANOTHER LOOK WHICH IS WHEN I REALIZED I REALLY WAS CRAZY WHEN I STARTED TO THINK IT REALLY DIDN'T LOOK AS GOOD SANS VEIL. I FIGURED I COULD PASS IT OFF AS "EDITORIAL DRESSING" AS LONG AS I PROMISE TO LEAVE THE PARTY HAT AT HOME NEXT TIME TO AVOID LOOKING LIKE I'VE COMPLETELY LOST MY MARBLES.

  1. A few things...
    ONE. I always love your photos-- GORGEOUS.
    TWO. That is a hot dress-- I'm really intrigued with the veil concept; done in the same material as the dress I feel like it could give off more of an editorial, hood-like vibe rather than a crazed-bride vibe :)
    THREE. *Such* an apt song choice!

  16. It's a really wicked summer dress! Both kind of innocent, but with a pair of leather shorts of something it will look kill-ish. Anyway, I was like "summer dress now?" - it's 5 degrees here in the cold Scandinavia!

  17. Hey little sister, shotgun! I agree with everyone who suggested using the extra fabric for a hood, it's gonna look killer! Gorgeous photos, as always!

  43. Um, that looked liked the baddest mutherfucking hooded lace dress I'd ever seen. Dude, I think it might be time to get the needle and thread on this one. Scratch the veil, shit, this one's gonna be hooded! That's sick, girl.

  44. looking as fantastic as always, alex!

    theres really nothing quite like chopping up a wedding dress and making it editorial, is there?;)

  55. I like the contrast of the sweet and feminine lace with your inate sensuality. It completely tranforms the dress, oh and you should definitely add a hoodie to it!

  61. I thought the "veil" was a hood. Perhaps you can sew it on? It looks great as a hood/attachment to the dress.

    Love your shots. They get better and better :)
