Bésame mucho.

When: Tuesday, July 14th, 2008.

What: Cotton floral print sundress from Lapis, black-lace-and-pearl necklace from Spoiled on Broadway in Oakland, red lipstick (since I firmly believe it is capable of being an accessory in its own right) from Besame, in Red Velvet. Dolce Vita wooden wedges have a woven trim around the entire lower, with black suede and braided black satin on top. They are comfortable despite the very high heel and very, very pretty. Little skinny dark brown belt by Elie Tahari. Tattoos by Leslie Mah from Tribe 8; they were done at Diving Swallow in Oakland.

Confession: I am Girl Friday in an intensely air-conditioned office, so the ensemble was covered up all day with my favorite cardigan from the Erin Fetherston for GO Int'l @ Target line. It's black and soft and kind of frumpy, with little shiny heart buttons.
