OOTD: Globe-trotting glamour

plus size black dress with pink accessories

I wore this outfit to meet up with a friend who was visiting from out of town. I felt particularly sophisticated since the necklace is from Iceland and the fascinator is from France. The earrings are from a small shop in Shelburne Falls, which may not be particularly exotic or worldly, but is nonetheless a beautiful place.

Outfit August, day 12: pretty pastels

The life of a fatshion blogger is so hard. I just had to go to one of my favorite cupcake places to find the perfect background for this outfit. 😉

Dress: White Mark via Zulily, skirt: made from two skirts sewn together (you can see it worn on its own here), necklace: Forever 21, bracelets: Deb, earrings and fascinator: So Good, shoes: Clarks

This dress is really short–even on someone as short-legged as I am–hence the skirt underneath.  I really like how they go together, and it felt vaguely superpower-ish to have hidden unicorns under my dress.

OOTD: A fairy among mermaids

Last night, I went to The Cahd-fish Ball: A Mermaid Gala and Undersea Performance Spectacular. Since I only decided to go the day before, I didn’t have much time to put together a mermaid, pirate, or sailor costume, so I just went with what was easiest for me: dressing like some combination of a woodland fairy and a cupcake.

I meant to wear my fairy wings, but I had only an hour to get ready between work and the show, and I couldn’t manage to find them.

I am so, so, so in love with this dress. It’s a size smaller than I usually wear, because my regular size (22) was sold out, but luckily it lives up to ASOS’ reputation for running large.

Unlike most lace dresses that I’ve worn, the lace is soft and not at all itchy. Whatever this material is, it should be used to make every dress ever. Continue reading

Clothing swaps are the best. I’ve gotten so many great dresses from them in the past year or so. And this one in particular is so me.  I love that it has a bit of ruching and a slightly tulip-y hem–it’s those little details that make such a difference. Continue reading
