oh pardon me, i forgot how sad your story about being forced to eat lots of yummy cookies is

I was delighted yesterday when a package from Kirsty Lee arrived in the mail, containing clothes she'd outgrown. You'll be seeing the other goodies when I wear them (so stoked) but my favorite was this pink ruffled frock. After seeing moohoop and Belle wear similar ones SO TORTUROUSLY epicly I'd been keeping an eye on one at a local antique store and one on Etsy (which I've sadly misplaced the link to). Dreams do come true?Perfect ruffles and color and bow and ENDLESS possibilities (it is so versatile. srsly. like I DIE-level). It makes me feel like a bird!
Today was strange. Our substitute told us his life story and my classmate turned pale and started yelling "he's coming" during gym.
Only in suburbia.Night night.

That is really cute but you know what it reminds me of? One of those shirts the men wear in flamenco or tango dancing!

Ahhh! Omigod it's so light and feathery- true birdlike! (loved the cape from yesterday) I too live in the suburbs where all anyone knows is Abercrombie.
Yay for vintage!

I like your blog.

I think you should check out the bands

STRAWBERRY SWITCHBLADE and FUZZBOX from the 80s. I like their songs a lot, but you also might like their fashion.

(unrelated to this post, just your blog in general)

Nice and Shiny said...

What's with subs and thinking we care? They were always so freaky...

The frills, breathtaking! A dream come true indeed. So awsome, I'd deck it out loita-style for shiz

Nadine said...

That's really gorgeous! (Although a frock is a short dress. As opposed to a long dress, which is a gown.)

Becky said...

the ruffled cape/bolero is gorgeous; the details are beautiful! I love what you've worn it with as well. The textures are perfect :)

Wanderlusting said...

Ah geeeez - I LOVE those ruffles, made even more delicate in the snow.

So, I was thinking, since you have an awesome sense of the avant garde and are the inspirer for tights everywhere, pehaps you could drop by my blog www.ontheblogbandwagon.blogspot.com for a chance to win a FREE pair of Celeste Stein comic book tights.

They aren't really ME but I think they could be YOU, or someone else daring and darling!
