This Fashionista really caught my eye on campus. I really liked the feminine vintage look with a dash of such an edgy accessory. The details in this dress was nothing a meer camera could ever catch the essence of. From the sheer dolman sleeves to the intense lace front and back, I fell in love with this Fashionista's dress that she bought from Free People. With all the crazy, wacky, “hipster” looks on campus, this outfit was a bit of fresh air and such a great example of being ultimately classy, edgy and glam at the same time.
