Candy Girl






Outfit Details:
dress - thrifted and revamped
headband - courtesy of heart by ban.do
ultra sheer black tights - target
Hue purple otk stockings - Nordstrom
lace peep toe heels - courtesy of Nine West (currently on sale!)
Poppy Occasion Sequin Pouch - borrowed from Coach


Sometimes I just have to take it a little over the top. I blame it on Miku, because she really brings out the sparkle in me.

I bought this dress at a thrift shop in Florida, simply because I liked the scallop detail. The rest of the dress was just a 90s revival of the wiggle dress - mini style - and it just wasn't working for me. I added a lace overlay under the shelf bust but didn't have a proper sewing machine to hem the bottom. If I don't do it right away, I just never do it,  so I wore it with a raw edge and called it a day. Between the sequins, rainbow bow and precious puppy, who would ever notice?

  55. Shilo: Haha, no way! I would have frozen to death. These particular photos are from November. I had a bunch of photos that I took for Coach's blog. I didn't want to post any on my blog until their own post went up, so they're a little off season:)

  56. You are just the coolest blogger out there, I really enjoy coming here and checking out your gorgeous blog. Really makes my day. I am a busy mum of two and I totally believe in how important it is to look good (even if it is just a bit of eyelinern or extra scarf or that quick slick of lip shine before i dash out of the door). I just think you are gorgeous and love your style.

    I have been dying to ask you - is your hair naturally wavy?? I just had mine digitally permed but yours just look amazing.
