This dress did not really cost one million dollars, but it sure makes me feel like a million dollars. Actually, considering that expression was probably coined in like 1908, when you factor in for inflation, let's settle on a nice round figure of one billion. This dress makes me feel like one billion dollars. (WTF. I hate when you think you have this really original, funny idea and then you realize it's actually from Austin Powers...happens to me all the time.)

First of all, this dress fits like a dream. It's vintage, and it's in mint condition. It's crocheted and kinda-sorta too sheer for the human eye when the sun catches it in just the right light. But I wear it anyway. And I love it.

What better occasion to wear the billion dollar dress than to celebrate my BFF's birthday at Sol Mexican Cocina in Newport Beach. With $10 bottomless mimosas...you really cannot go wrong. Mmmm...

 K so after breakfast I needed to take pics of myself in the billion dollar dress so I could blog about it. So I went over to Jazzy's. We hiked up into the wilderness of Shady Canyon (AKA her backyard) and we were snappin' away having a grand old time, taking all these fabulous pictures...

Ya, so we're snap, snap, snappin' away, and I'm all, "Jasmine, stop making me laugh I really need to have a serious model face!" And that's when we heard it. The ferocious growling, snarl of the biggest, baddest, scariest, most monstrously huge mountain lion we've ever heard in our life. And I was like:
So Jasmine was already halfway back to her house two seconds after she snapped this pic, but like, this outfit REALLY doesn't lend itself to running away from killer mountain lions, ya know? (I mean, thank GOD I was wearing platforms!) So I sort of tinkered down the hill as fast as I could...but I actually almost died. That brush with really messed with our mojo so we ended out photo shoot and went to Pick Up Stix. The end. Vintage maxi dress. F21 floppy hat. American Eagle platforms.
