Sartorial Saturday–Inspired by The Astronaut Wives Club

Today I’m taking a look at a Miss Candyfloss dress that feels like it could have appeared in an episode of The Astronaut Wives Club…the Selena-Sun!

My favorite things about this dress are the collar/neckline and the asymmetrical buttons down the front. It’s so unique and beautiful!

I’m usually reluctant to wear the color yellow, especially this much and so close to my face. But there’s something so cheerful and summery about it, I don’t even mind!

Since the dress is such a bright color, I keep my accessories simple, with a white and silver color palette featuring a Splendette stack and my favorite necklace. I even added some cute earrings, which I haven’t worn much since the pandemic began!

The dress is a little big on me. Miss Candyfloss recommended ordering a size up from your usual size, but I’m often between sizes, and I didn’t look at the size chart closely enough, so I should have just stuck with my regular Miss Candyfloss size. The dress will look even better once I have it taken in a bit and it’s more fitted, but I don’t think it looks terrible the way it is now.

It really is the perfect dress for a retro summer!

I’m looking forward to styling this in other ways in the future!
