Daisies & Buttercups

DRESS: Milk Teeths Vintage TIGHTS: Forever 21 SOCKS: DIY SHOES: ASOS (similar)
BUTTERCUP ZINE: A gift from Paige Joanna ♡♡♡ TOTE: Paige Joanna

When I heard Paige Joanna was creating a zine, I was overjoyed! She is one of my favorite style bloggers who is also a remarkable artist; I have been lucky enough to get to know her as a person - and she has become a very dear friend to me.

So recently when I received the tote bag I had purchased from her and realized she had included not one but two of her zines - I was left a bit speechless!

Not only is Buttercup *very* professionally put together (couldn't get over how sleek & beautifully made it was!), but the contents are divine! Filled with poetry and illustrations by Paige, it was a delight to flip through - highlights were definitely Paige's introduction, spotting Megan and Stephanie, and the adorable paper doll!

I'm rather smitten with my tote as well! I decided to pair it with this daisy dress I bought from Milk Teeths Vintage (which is run by the lovely Ashley and is currently having a sale!), my new houndstooth tights that I adore, and more DIYed ruffle socks! ♡

Thank you so much again Paige - you are incredible! ♡♡♡ Do you have any zines you would like to recommend?! I absolutely adore them! ♡

  5. This dress is gooooorgeous on you! Love love love. That paper doll section is so cute. Have you ever read the book Bananafish? It's about all about zines (though I'd argue that none in it are as cute as Paige's!). How did you DIY the shoes? Add silver straps? They're so cute!
