#FatshionFebruary, day 8: Punk Rock Marie Antoinette

This is what I wore for my brother’s birthday party yesterday, which was a blast!

The dress was originally a plain black sundress that I picked up at a clothing swap. As soon as I tried it on, I knew it would look better with punk embellishments–so I bought a bunch of them on Amazon, and my friend Red attached them in exchange for a bottle of wine. My friends are awesome. 🙂

Dress: clothing swap/DIY, skirt: Roaman’s, jacket: Kohl’s, shoes: Naot, necklace and earrings: Lithia’s Creations, wristband: So Good, multi-colored pearl bracelet: homemade using beads from Michael’s, pearl+flower bracelet and fascinator: eBay

#FFFaceoff part 2: The dark ombre floral circus

This is my second outfit post for the Fall Fashion Faceoff challenge organized by Kelly of Masque Mag. It combines a few of my favorite things: ombre, floral, vertical stripes, and of course, a tiny hat.

A few unrelated things: pink pants, a skull tiara, and pocket change

1.) You know what would be cool? These pink jeggings with zippers sewn onto them. And possibly some extra fabric (black? zebra print? black lace?) inserted into the lower legs to make them flare out. *hatches diabolical pants-punkifying plot*

2.) Gala Darling’s post on getting gorgeous at the party supply store (which brings back memories of the days when I got half my accessories at party stores…and a few at pet stores) led me to Party City’s tiara section, where I found this Monster High Skullette Tiara. I don’t even know what Monster High is, but it’s super-cute.

3.) This morning I read an article in the Metro (great journalism? No. Free? Yes.) about a charity project at BU. They collect pocket change from students in a mailbox, and donate it monthly to different charities. It’s a cool idea, and I’m glad to see that change-collecting still works in the age of credit cards and online shopping. So, huzzah for BU!
