Back in February I stumbled upon an adorable blog called Dolls Are United, run by a sweet girl named Amy, along with every-now-and-then posts from her "Resident Bloggers". Immediately, I found myself attracted to the blog and naturally started clicking around, when I saw that Amy is a fashion designer who has a line called Mod Dolly. Needless to say, I purchased two lovely dresses from Mod Dolly as soon as I got paid, and I'd been eagerly waiting to don the dresses -without having to winterize them too much- ever since. Today was hot, but breezy, so I went with the striped one first, only adding tights and my own belt (it came with a black one).
How gnarly is this brass knuckle skull clutch?! It's like the Alexander McQueen one, but affordable.
And of course, a blooper:
This is definitely not the dress for a windy day. You can see that it's not terribly short, it just flares up easily since it's a lightweight summer dress. Anywho, I had a Marilyn Monroe moment this afternoon...well, it wasn't even a Marilyn moment since my dress actually came above my goodies as I walked to my car at Best Buy. I froze, laughed, and sped out of there. These opaque tights were my saving grace. Nevertheless, I love this panty-flashing frock and can't wait to remix the crap out of it!
Now, get into some shenanigans this weekend and enjoy yourselves.
