For the evening of my birthday, I went to a party held by my friend Emily, who was visiting from out of town. I went full-out girly-punk both in celebration of my birthday and because I knew that Emily, as a fellow punk-clothing-lover, would appreciate it.
Dress: ASOS Curve, top: Tripp via a blogger who was selling clothes on StoreEnvy, socks: Domino Dollhouse, shoes: L.L. Bean, purse: really old–probably from Claire’s, giant bow: the Velvet Village, necklace: Kuma Crafts, earrings: Lithia’s Creations, spike bracelet: So Good, studded bracelet: Macy’s
One of the benefits of having a non-Jewish partner is that I get to celebrate twice as many holidays. 🙂
This is the outfit I wore to spend Christmas with Steve’s family in Brooklyn:
Dress: Domino Dollhouse via Facebook resale community FatToo, teggings: Re/Dress, shoes: Naot, cardigan: Kohl’s, headband: Target, bangles: Torrid and Deb, earrings, necklace, and wristband: So Good
I was so happy when I found this dress on FatToo. I had originally admired it, but was waiting to buy it–and then it went out of stock after the initial run, due to a problem with one of DD’s suppliers. Finding it on a resale community was such a stroke of luck, and it fits perfectly–it’s so comfortable and I love how it looks on me.
Domino Dollhouse‘s lookbook for next season is out! First, it was in the latest issue of Skorch (which is full of awesome, btw), and now it’s on their Facebook page.
I usually try not to get into the manufactured-desire cycle of New! Collections! Coming! Out! But I make an exception for Domino Dollhouse, because 1.) their shit is just that awesome, 2.) I feel significantly less bad about unbridled consumerism when it supports small indie designers, and 3.) I don’t have that many other options for truly fabulous clothing. It’s not like I can just walk into a thrift store and pick up a $10 prom dress or any of the other awesome things I’ve seen in straight sizes. I do hope that, ideally, Domino Dollhouse clothing and other fabulous plus size stuff ends up in thrift stores eventually.
With that out of the way, here are the clothes:
It’s just like the mint green skater dress with bones, except red with stars! I’m much more into star print than bones print, and I love the shape of this dress, so…it’s going to be very, very tempting.
Leopard + spikes + cosmic print? Yes, please.
