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.
Dress: Target (really old), teggings: Re/Dress, cardigan: Kohl’s (also really old), necklace: Leynibudin, fascinator: Brykalski, earrings: a shop whose name I don’t remember in Shelburne Falls, MA, bracelets: Macy’s, So Good, and Torrid, shoes: Naot Continue reading
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. 😉
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.
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.

Dress: ASOS Curve, fascinator: ASOS, shoes: Clark’s, necklace: Forever 21, earrings: ??, purse: from the Hello Kitty kiosk in the Prudential Mall ages ago, rose bangle: H&M, rose beaded bracelet: homemade, pink rhinestone ball bracelet: from a clothing swap, bangles: Deb, pink rose ring: The Tiny Teapot, silver rose ring: ancient

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
Dress: Avenue via clothing swap, fascinator: Enz’s, necklace and earrings: Forever 21, shoe clips: Head Full of Feathers (which is sadly closing down), wristband: So Good, rings: really old, sandals: Clark’s
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
