Sometimes, you find a deal that’s just too good to pass up!
I’ve been wanting to try a pantsuit from Miss Candyfloss, but I was really worried about the fit. Knowing that their sunsuits worked for me helped a little bit, but I hadn’t been able to commit to buying one. Until I found the Mare-Minty on clearance at one of their online retailers, Boho-Chic Clothing, for only $30 (American!)!!! At that price, I really had nothing to lose!
The color scheme of this beautiful pantsuit made accessorizing lots of fun…I added a beautiful Splendette stack with matching necklace, and one of my favorite headpieces.
I also added my first-ever pair of Erstwilder earrings, from their Wizard of Oz collection:
I love how elegant this look is, and also how easy it is to wear…it’s super comfortable!
I’m so glad I was able to take a chance on this outfit. I know how their pantsuits fit now (I just need to have the hem raised a bit), and I know I like to wear them, so I don’t think this will be the only one I add to my wardrobe!
I guess once I finally tried a Miss Candyfloss dress, it was inevitable that I would want another. I tried to resist the Tamrika Sand dress, which backfired on me when it sold out on both Unique Vintage’s and Miss Candyfloss’s websites and I was filled with regrets. I was finally able to find it through a French online store, Boho-Chic Clothing, and ironically, even with international shipping, I was able to order for a little less than I would paid at Unique Vintage.
The thing that immediately caught my eye about this dress was the tweed skirt and lapels. That little bit of texture adds so much to the dress!
I toned down my usual accessories, because I couldn’t figure out how to make a bangle stack work with these sleeves. I did add my Slothertons brooch pair from Erstwilder, a beaded necklace, and a pair of gloves, though.
There’s something about this look that reminds me of the Army uniforms in White Christmas!
I haven’t quite figured out my perfect Miss Candyfloss size. The first Tamrika dress I ordered fits really well; this one is a little on the large side, especially in the arms, which is very unusual for me. I’m hoping to have it tailored in the future, but even if I don’t, it’s still a beautiful dress, and I’m glad I didn’t let this one get away!
