DRESS: ModCloth SHIRT: (worn under dress) ?? LADY TIE: c/o Flapper Girl TIGHTS: c/o Tabbi Socks SHOES: Kohls

This winter has been freezing - I'm embarrassed to admit I was stomping around in my mom's ugg boots (I was desperate I'm telling you!) and my father's coat in a not very attractive attempt to stay warm before I got my brand new coat; but luckily, I was able to steal away some sun and *finally* show you this outfit!

The talented and sweet Christine, owner of Flapper Girl, sent me this lady tie for review and I absolutely ADORE it! Not only did it arrive in the best packaging ever, but it is so well made and I'm already thinking up how I can base a Valentine's Day outfit around it ♡_♡

Also included was the most incredible fabric I have ever seen - Christine was kind enough to send along this mermaid textile simply because it reminded her of me! ;__; I'm too afraid to cut it - nothing my clumsy hands could make doesn't seem quite worthy of it :') Thank you again so much Christine!

I'm also completely in love with these tights from Tabbi Socks - who wouldn't want to run around with bespeckled legs?!

Meanwhile, I dyed my hair with Cupcake Pink from Special Effects diluted with conditioner and it turned out really peachy - I think I love it! What do you think?

♡,
Kailey

  42. ADORABLE outfit! :)
    I think your hair turned out beautifully. I love soft pink shades. I am also quite fond of your lady tie. I've been meaning to get one for ages (I'm in love with the one with a mushroom design). I think they add a very whimsical touch to an outfit. ^_^

    What do you plan to do with the fabric? It's soooo shiny :3

  45. These shoes are excellent! They always make me think of Bugsy Malone gangster kids with their splurge guns. New hair is very purty also.

  54. I LOVE your hair color (although I'm a little biased - pinky hair colors are my all time fav), and that outfit is rad! If I'm not mistaken, I have some of that fabric too, from Joanns. I have had plans to sew a mermaid costume with it, so I'd agree and also say that it fits you!
