"Here I Am, A Rabbit Hearted Girl Frozen in the Headlights"

This weekend was almost too eventful. I went to the rooftop of Ink48 hotel Friday night which has one of my favorite city views. Saturday I went to brunch and then the Charles James exhibit at the Met as well as their beautiful and sunny rooftop garden. Then the evening was spent at a biergarden in Astoria. Sunday I had brunch in LES and then visited the New York Botanical Garden way up in the Bronx, which was all followed by band practice with my friend. The weekend was spent with some good friends I hadn't seen in some time, but next weekend I hope to relax a little more and slow it down when my mom visits! 

Definitely follow my other adventures on Instagram by the way if you haven't already, @modernromantic where I post all of my best photos of my everyday activities! I am working on a tumblr by the way as well as new youtube content! And I am getting ready for an upcoming coffeehouse performance with my other musical friend that I mentioned. It's a busy but satisfying life. 

I suppose you may be wondering where this delightful dress is from. On the way to the Met, my roommate and I happened upon a cute vintage store called LoveDay31 and the best dress in there happened to be on sale. I adore the sheer fabric which I wore a slip with, and most of all I love the lace-y sailor collar. It makes me wonder what it's story is because every piece of clothing has a story. I'm pretty sure it's handmade, so I can add it to my random collection of handmade dresses by people I would love to thank but don't know and never will!
