Rock it With Jason and the Argonauts

Prom was last saturday but I'll never forget the white dress (left) that my best friend almost wore instead of the pink halter that she ended up with (which was still gorgeous). Me and my other friend, Carly, forced her to buy it becuase it looked so damn good on her but she insisted on not wearing it because it looked like a toga.
Which is complete lunacy, but that's not my point.
After it was decided that yes, the dress would not be worn, Carly and I couldn't stop talking about it and noticed everything that had even the slightest ancient Greek/Roman influences. So, this is my Greek post.
Greek is next big thing. Well, we hope considering we've had embarrassingly long discussions about it. Take the Alexander McQueen Ready to Wear Spring Summer 06 collection (green dress on the right) for example. You can look at the complete collection at Style.com. Not only is it very 90's but many of the pieces fit right in with what I was talking about earlier.
And, of course, no one can forget how trendy gladiator sandals where a while ago. Well, the braided leather is back but now it's not nearly as annoying. Then again, everyone and their mom has sandals like that now. And I'm not exagerating. These (left. DUH!) are from Urban Outfitters and are $28.
Of course, there is a huge amount of ancient Greek and Roman influenced clothes out there, it's just hard to find them on the internet. And by hard I mean I'm way to tired to think about doing that now.
Next time you think about dissmissing a dress because it looks like a toga think of me. AHEM.
Edit: THOSE ARE NOT GLADIATOR SANDLES. I know they are out of style (I would also like to point out that I have been chastised before for being to trendy and now people are pissed at me for showing something supposedly uncool). Have you seen gladiator sandles? These are a different variation. I personally hate gladiator sandles but the ones I showed are cute and summery. Perfect for walking to the beach. I obviously am not good at expressing myself sometimes.

SHESHOULD'VEWORNIT!

uh...yeah, I like the green dress. It's cute and maybe I'm taking crazy pills but I like the idea of layering a white beater under it to make it more casual.

I like Carly's idea. But I'd have to see it :] THANK GOD FOR FINALLY UPDATING. i was going luny. Anywyas, I really like the color of the dress, and I completely agree I hate gladiator sandals, but those are cute. They have potential. Although I have a thing about completely flat shoes (which those are).. and they bother me a tad, but I think I could deal.

Who give a crap if something is "liek, sooo out". You know what is a lot more lame than being out of style? Having trends dictate what you wear!!

Leith i think you are cocky, over the top, stupid, and really really have bad taste. Vera Bradly? Yeah, ugly stuff, but some preppy little teenager who just saved up for one is crying now cause u made her feel bad! Honestly, suggestions Leith! And if your going to sate an opinion, be nice about it, Not "EVIL" "VERA BRANDLY SHOUL GO THE WAY OF MY DEAD DOG BWAHAHAHA1"
also, Brenanananaaanananannaafrkslfdjlds, she is one crazy %$#%$! I mean, its on thing to be sarcastic but shes just plain mean. I guess you guys are a perfect match.
Ur cocky. Blah.
I know what your going to say, that if i dont like ur site, i should just leave, but i needed to let that our and let u know that you are not 1/2 the person u think you are. Amen!

hey anonymous, i found something about that dress!!!
it is not chanel, the pearls she has on are chanel but not the dress.
the dress is actually BCBG.for sure, im positive.

7:43 PM  
Blogger Leith said...

Actually, Geisha, the dress is not from BCBG, atleast from what I can tell from the website (And I've been to one of the BCBG stores and they didnt' have it). However, anonymous, The O.C.'s website has some pretty decent pictures.

i really can't even believe this crap going on here, but anonymous? whoever you are? leith doesn't HAVE to help you out. she DOES have a life. so instead of being so damn ungrateful, you could THANK HER instead of telling her to CHECK HER RESOURCES BETTER. (don't you mean SOURCES? yeah.) and THEN criticizing her blog. damn!
