Domino Dollhouse’s Doll Parts collection is everything

You guys, Domino Dollhouse has a new collection inspired by ’90s female musicians. This is literally the best thing ever.

Red plaid, leopard, daisy print, and lyrics from Garbage and Hole? Yessssssss. I’m also excited that most of the items are cotton, and they’re a bit cheaper than many of DD’s previous collections.

Here are a few pictures of the collection, and then some music to get you in the angsty-girl-power mood:

This jack-o-lantern partied a bit too hard.

Happy day-after-Halloween! I hope you all had a good time.  I spent the evening watching Cabin in the Woods with a group of friends, and although I don’t usually like horror movies, I loved it! It’s pretty much impossible for Joss Whedon to make anything bad, and it didn’t hurt that the cast was full of great actors.

I also had a Halloween party last weekend, where I dressed up as a steampunk Pikachu (in reference to this comic). I will post pictures soon! Now, on to the linky goodness…

Fa(t)shion
-I don’t mean to turn my blog into a complete advertisement for Domino Dollhouse, but their new skull-print babydoll dress and leggings are too awesome not to post about.
-This photo shoot of five fat babes is fabulous.
-The Brooklyn Fashion and Design Accelerator, a collective workspace focused on sustainable production, will be opening in 2014.
-John Scalzi writes about why he dresses the way he does, and how, as a middle-class white man, he faces less appearance-based judgment than most people.
-Jille Edge’s Flickr has plenty of old-school Delia*s nostalgia.
Politicizing plus size fashion with blogger Brooklyn Boobala.

Fat Acceptance
-There will be a Fat Justice Workshop here in Boston next weekend.

-Abigail Saguy talks about the history of the “obesity epidemic.”
Fat people need candy too.

Climate and Sustainability
-A must-read from Naomi Klein: how science is telling us all to revolt.
-The Transition Lab, which trains ordinary people to create a resilient future, sounds amazing. If any of my fellow Bostonians want to learn more, check out the presentations they will be giving in Cambridge next week.
-A great overview of what a post-growth economy means, and why we need one.

#FFFaceoff: Black-and-white floral throughout the years

Some things never change; one of them is my love of photorealistic floral prints.

I put this outfit together for Kelly’s Fall Fashion Faceoff challenge, combining a skirt I’ve had since middle school (which is old enough to make it “vintage”–eek!) with a blazer I got about a year ago.

blazer: Torrid, skirt: Marshall’s (?) in 1998 or 1999, boots: Hot Topic in 2001, black dress: Target, belt: Re/Dress, shawl: not sure (possibly from my mom), necklace: from a clothing swap, headband; eBay
