The Sweetest Thing

Dress: Pinup Girl Clothing

Belt: Torrid

Shoes: Zu Shoes

I did end up getting this Pinup Girl Clothing dress hemmed a little shorter from its original mid-calf length. I like it – it’s not quite as over-the-top as it was, but its still long enough to wear my pink Domino Dollhouse petticoat with.

A few of you did ask how the dress looked sans petticoat, so here it is:

Not THAT much difference, actually. I wore it like this during the day, but then came home in the evening and donned the petticoat for a work book launch I was attending for Phillipa “Queen of Desserts”  Sibley‘s first book P.S. Desserts.

A Soft Spot

Dress: Eliza Parker

Belt: Torrid

Shoes: Melissa

I love this dress, but it’s always evening when I wear it, so I never manage to get a nice picture to post up on Frocks and Frou Frou. I really wanted to share it with you guys, so I changed into it this afternoon  and took some snaps.

It’s exactly the same shape and style as the Monaco Dress, but instead of the graphic play of black and white, this Andorra Dress is a very on-trend navy.

All the better to flaunt with bright red accessories, like my new Melissa shoes! I found them on my Great Red Shoe Hunt, and decided they were going to be perfect for the warmer summer months. I’m a bit obsessed with the bubblegum scent, but it remains to be seen how comfortable the are in the summer when I’ll no doubt be slipping & sliding on sweaty soles (like all Melissa shoes, they’re plastic)

Back to the dress though – one of the reasons I have such a soft spot for this dress? I was wearing it when I went from being The Sophisticate’s girlfriend to being his fiance.
