Down the Rabbit Hole

Gwen Stefani – What You Waiting For
Pink –  Just Like Fire

These Wonderland inspired music videos inspire a level of giddiness in me that goes undiminished as time passes; the same type of giddiness was caused by this photo shoot from Chotronette. Accuracy be damned, that bunny dress is fantastic, and I don’t care what color ears I have to get to wear it. Heck, I think I even have a Pinterest DIY for lace ears saved somewhere. I’ll make my own damn ears if I have to! As if it wasn’t cute enough on its own, the description makes it even better:

Add two teaspoons of dark chocolate and mix together with strawberry mousse. Garnish with a fondant giant bow and mille feuille ruffles and serve on a victorian cliff house tea party.


Don’t get me wrong: this gorgeous embroidered white boho dress is the stuff of my sparkle fairy hippie dreams, and any other day… maybe even tomorrow, I’d be over the moon for it, but today… today I am all about black satin and pink tulle. 
I’m also considering what types of shoes and tights would be best with my imaginary ensemble. I am leaning towards black lace tights and a really cute pair of black peeptoe wingtip heeled booties. Although, I also am thinking that it could be really cute with thigh-highs and an elaborate garter belt type situation too. I mean you wouldn’t see the whole rig-up, but just a little peek at the hemline would be great for visual interest.

One last thing, I’m not a huge fan of my natural god given freckles, but those glitzy gold ones could be fun to try out. I mean, maybe I’d go for a rose gold or something a little holo, but nonetheless, tres, tres cute.


Being a Sparkle Princess

I’ve loved fashion for as long as I can remember. I was super prissy growing up and for a while having to wear jeans was a punishment my parents used to keep me in line. One of the saddest things about growing up is losing that sense of playfulness when it comes to what we wear. Largely, our wardrobe decisions are dictated by social media, magazines, movies/TV, and, in my case, what I can wedge my butt into. I’ve gone from tutus and glitter jelly shoes to black tank tops & yoga pants. Sure, I jazz it up from time to time with a flower crown, printed kimono or a pair of glitter sneakers, but largely, my wardrobe is three things: functional, black, and work appropriate. I am currently working on that, but it’s a bit daunting.

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed the other day when I saw this dress. Since the company it came from was tagged, I quickly made my way to their page and felt the kind of giddy princess-y elation I felt as a young child. While Chotronette might be a little out of my price range for day to day items, I can see myself indulging in a dress for a special event someday, and they make these gorgeous creations to measure!


What do you think? Does this brand make you want to play dress up? I might exchange the combat boots for glittery heels, or at least glittery combat boots 😉
