One of my favorite stylistic tricks is shameless copying. So when I came across this picture of an extremely bejeweled Betsey Johnson, I couldn’t help but put my own twist on it. If some jewelry is good, then more is better, right? 😉

These pictures are from the evening part of my birthday party. I’ll post pictures from the beach and dinner separately!
In honor of my birthday, which is coming up tomorrow–can you believe I’m going to be 28?!–I’ve put together a compilation of things I’d love to get if a magical fairy fatmother showed up waving her wand at my front door.
If I actually had a fairy fatmother, the first thing I’d ask for would be a stable, satisfying job with good pay and benefits–but pretty things are much more fun to fantasize about.
You can click each image to go to the Polyvore set, which has the details.
Another thing I would love to have, but that Polyvore wouldn’t let me clip, is a custom illustration by Natalie Perkins. Here are a few of my favorites that she’s drawn so far (via FLI’s Facebook page)–aren’t they gorgeous?
Last weekend, I finally made it to the annual steampunk festival in Waltham. And I’m so glad I did. It was an alt-fatshionista’s dream.
Art, music, bellydancing, amazing costumes, tiny hats galore…and I even met the Doctor, who must have been taking a break from saving the world to attend the festival.
Here are a few pictures from the day, including some fa(t)shion highlights. For more, check out my Facebook photo album (which is public, so you can view it even if you’re not on FB).
I met this fabulous lady dressed in steampunk Lolita, and exchanged blog info with her. She has a Tumblr, which you should check out if you enjoy the fusion of Lolita and other styles.
They make babies!
Now my tiny hat family has an even tinier, ridiculously adorable addition.
(The real story behind its origins: I went to the Buffalo Exchange to sell some clothing and accessories, and used the store credit I received to buy, among other things, this tiniest of tiny hats. I was very excited that such thing even existed!)
Top: Chic Star, skirt: vendor at a dance festival, petticoat and socks: Domino Dollhouse, tiny hat: So Good, boots: Hot Topic, necklace: eBay, studded wristband: Macy’s, zipper wristband: some random store on Newbury Street
You can thank Fatshion February for the fact that I got all Goth-ed up instead of wearing sweatpants to watch the Puppy Bowl. (Although I do love my leopard and pink leopard fuzzy sweatpants, so you’ll probably see them sometime this month.)
