SHIRT: Forever 21 DRESS: Forever 21 LADY TIE: c/o Flapper Girl TIGHTS: Forever 21 SHOES: Kohls (similar)

Happy Pi Day everybody! It's actually rather fitting that I'm posting this outfit today, because I wore this to see Life of Pi at the theater a couple days ago! The movie, by the way, was absolutely stunning ;_;

I'm totally in love with the cut and detailing of this dress! It looks so simple, but the darting and added volume at the waist make it stand out - and how cute does it look with this polka-dot blouse? The dress also comes in lavender - but sadly my size is sold out u___u

(Obviously, my true calling was being a chorus girl in a B-grade 50s musical.)

I'm also wearing the gorgeous lady tie Miss Christine from Flapper Girl gifted me!

Lately I've been working on a big commission, so I might be a bit quiet for the next few days! Are you lovelies up to anything interesting?

P.S. I'm not entirely sure what's going on re: Google Reader being retired & what that means for GFC etc, etc - but you can always follow Mermaidens with Bloglovin'!

♡,
Kailey

  27. Super cute! I really like the cut of the dress it's very flattering :) Also that tie you're wearing is so cute! I really like the style of those ties, but I hardly ever wear my shirts buttoned all the way up so I could never really wear one myself..

  28. it's such a simple little black dress, but wearing a cute shirt and that flapper girl tie makes it so much cuter and turns it into and outfit instead of just a dress. you look adorable! and i've really wanted to see the life of pi and still haven't managed to, but i'm glad to hear you loved it. :)

  30. my dream is to be a chorus girl in a b grade 50s film too. how fun would that have been! i love this outfit. that lady tie is so cute. i'm feeling so inspired by your hair colour. I would love to dye my hair pink after graduating (no hair dying allowed and my school is why I currently haven't). So maybe by the end of the year, I might finally take that leap of faith and just dye it. :D
