DRESS: c/o Book of Deer TIGHTS: Sold out at ASOS, now available at ModCloth
FLATS: Forever 21 RING: ASOS HEADBAND: Forever 21 (sold out; similar)

The second I laid eyes on this dress by Book of Deer, I was smitten. Lush, navy velvet in a retro silhouette, complete with bell sleeves and a big bow with embroidered bears on it - perfection! I couldn't help but feel like a witchy Disney princess in it!

I continued the cute animal theme with these ADORABLE bunny tights - seriously how cute are they? And the past couple months I have really fallen in love with jewelry, rings specifically - and this star ring I got in an ASOS sale for only $6 is exactly what I've been wanting! I'm curious to know what your favorite jewelry stores are - leave me recommendations please?

As luck would have it, I actually ran into some deer while shooting these pictures, wearing a Book of Deer dress...!

  14. I've been smitten with this dress for so long, and it looks so perfect on you. I don't think it would work as well on my figure, so I'll stick to living vicariously. And omg those deer!!! How amazing!

  15. Love your outfits forever and ever. That's amazing that you stumbled upon some deer while taking pictures! We have a family of deer that live in the woods by our house and I always see them walking around early in the morning. Never gets old!

  16. Some cool jewelry is the stuff made by LITTER (http://littersf.com/) it's definitely a bit pricey, but in my opinion it's worth it- very original. I'm absolutely in love with this velvet dress- makes me want to pull out everything velvet I own and layer it. xo Landice/Andi (http://lukewarmroyalty.blogspot.com)

  26. This is a wonderful outfit! This dress really caught my eye on Modcloth awhile back - it's super on you!

  27. Beautiful outfit! In terms of jewlery stores, I'd recommend I'myourpresent on etsy, which has an aswesome selectrion of lazer cut acryllic stuff - and they make custom word necklaces, for a very reasonable price! They even have some fantastic "barbie" and "mermaid" necklaces, which seem like they'd be your thing.

    I'm also a big fan of booandboo factory. They make crazy colored leather jewlery, including gigantic statement necklaces! I'm DYING to get my hands on one of their hexacomb pieces. Plus, they're handmade in my hometown! :D

    Speciesbythethousdands is a really interesting jewlery/apothecary. They make lots of neat witchy pieces and very fancy herbal mixtures. An excellent stop for the fashionable witch, or anyone who wants to wear runes and smell good.

    Tbh I buy most of my jewelry at Asos and Modcloth... but anyway, I hope you like any of the places I suggested!

  33. This blue velvet dress is just so cute with the big bow on front. I'm loving your awesome patterned tights too. Everything about this look is spot on. As for jewelry, I find a lot of cheapo jewelry at Forever 21. There's always something new there.
