It’s time for a look at an outfit from the Miss Candyfloss “Exquisite” collection that I almost didn’t order…the Minerva-Lee double collared blazer and the Cressida-Lee swing skirt with buttons!
In general, I prefer wearing dresses to skirts, because dresses are so much easier (no worries about what top you’re going to pair with them), and you can worry a bit less about the fit (no fussy waistband as long as the rest of the garment fits). I had a dress that I was planning to order from Miss Candyfloss (the lovely Xanthe-Mai blazer dress if you were wondering), and I was really looking forward to it, and then I saw this beautiful skirt suit styled a few different ways, and I knew that I had to add it my wardrobe instead.
I accessorized with blue and white Splendette Duchess Bangles and a cute Erstwilder bird brooch, plus some lacy gloves and my favorite hat:
The jacket is the most gorgeous shade of blue! I love the double collar, and the contrasting cuffs and buttons.
One of the best features of the jacket, though, you only see from behind…it has the most elegant peplum!
I also love that the skirt buttons all the way down the front…I think that will provide some interesting styling opportunities next summer!
This look is so lovely…I’m glad I decided against my standard dress for once!
I’m looking forward to pairing the jacket with some of my dresses, and the skirt is going to be a great year-round piece that will go with so many things!
I’m very excited to share my first purchase from the new autumn/winter collection, Exquisite, from Miss Candyfloss, and the reason I am so excited about will be very obvious…it’s the lovely Amanda-Sunrise swing dress!
Yes, when I realized that one of the new dresses shares my name, I knew I had to add it to my wardrobe. But it’s not just tastefully named…it’s also the perfect dress for fall! The colors are warm and gorgeous, I love the tulip sleeves, and the skirt is wonderfully soft and cozy!
I accessorized with a stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles, an Erstwilder brooch, velvet gloves, and my favorite hat:
Everything about this look just screams autumn!!!
I’m looking forward to sharing a few other pieces from this collection that might not share my name, but certainly called it!
I’m back with another look I created from pairing two pieces from two different Miss Candyfloss collections that I already had in my wardrobe. I picked one of my favorite spring dresses, the Amina-Regina, because it has so many lovely colors to work with, and topped it off with my Elke-Amber blazer, which is a perfect match for one of the shades found in the dress:
I accessorized with a trio of Splendette duchess bangles and an Erstwilder brooch:
I love the contrast between the plaid and floral collars…they’re so different, yet they work so well together!
It’s a great transitional look as we move from summer to (hopefully) autumn!
I love this puddle photo Ladybug took!
It’s so much fun to find unexpected pieces that match!
Here’s a closer look at how beautifully the blazer and dress go together:
I’m really looking forward to autumn and wearing more outfits like this!
I can’t wait to share some new looks from the latest Miss Candyfloss collection…stay tuned!
Time for another styling of some pieces already in my wardrobe in anticipation of autumn! Today I’m mixing patterns with the plaid Elsa-Lee blazer and the checked Magdalia-Lee swing dress. I’m not usually one to combine patterns like this, but there’s something about this combination that I really like!
I accessorized with my Vixen by Micheline Pitt polka dot gloves, a stack of Splendette duchess bangles, an Erstwilder brooch, and my blue hat:
I think this works so well because the colors play nicely together, and the pattern on the skirt is fairly subtle, and doesn’t really compete with the jacket.
I am so ready for autumn! I’ve been going through my wardrobe, looking for cool-weather pieces I already have the I haven’t worn together yet. The first items that jumped out at me were the Elke-Amber short blazer and the Brindy-Dora swing pants…they’re the perfect color palette for fall!
I accessorized with my favorite hat, orange and brown Splendette Duchess Bangles, and an Erstwilder brooch. I also wore a ring over my golden velvet gloves.
I love the way the whole look turned out!
I’m really looking forward to actually being able to wear my autumn clothes instead of just styling them…hopefully in the not-too-distant future!
I don’t know about anybody else, but I am so tired of the heat and humidity of summer. I’ve been hopefully thinking ahead to autumn and cooler days, which had me going through my wardrobe, trying to style an outfit for fall in a fresh way. That’s when I remembered that I’ve been wanting to try wearing a sleeveless dress over a blouse:
I paired the Melania-Abalone blouse with the Jolene-Plum dress (both from the 2021 Miss Candyfloss Toujours Elegant collection). At first glance, you might wonder why I chose these two pieces. The answer is simple…I have worn both the dress and the blouse with the Verena-Bo blazer from the same collection, so I knew they had enough in common to make it work!
I accessorized with a stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles and an Erstwilder brooch like I usually do, but I wore the brooch in a different way this time, pinning it on the bow at my throat…I really like how that looks, and now I wish I had more blouses like this so I could try it with other brooches!
This is a bit more pattern than I usually wear in one outfit, but the dress almost comes off as a solid neutral because the print is so small, so I don’t think it’s too visually distracting.
I really like the blouse and dress look!
I can’t wait to see what Miss Candyfloss has planned for their new autumn/winter collection!
This week’s Mani Monday is inspired by summer nights and this Erstwilder brooch. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” with a topcoat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Girls Flip” on two nails, and Holo Taco “Queen’s Curse” on the rest.
One of the most-anticipated movies of the year comes out today…the Barbie movie! I will be the first person to tell you I’ve never really been into Barbie (I had some as a child, but they’re not dolls I ever bought for my children), but she does have impeccable style, which is why I now have three outfits inspired by the famous fashion doll in my wardrobe, including my newest variation on the Dollface dress from Vixen by Micheline Pitt, in a beautiful blue and white chevron pattern.
If you think the dress looks familiar, it’s because its design is inspired by Barbie’s 1959 striped swimsuit. The first Dollface dress Vixen sold was in that iconic black and white chevron, but they added both pink and blue versions, and I’ve been waiting and waiting for the blue to come back, because it’s just so pretty!
How to accessorize a Barbie dress? Let’s start with a matryoshka brooch from Erstwilder, because one doll deserves another! I also added white lace gloves, my standard pearls, blue hair flowers, and silver hoop earrings.
I couldn’t resist picking up the Loungefly crossbody bag to go with the dress, and not only is it really cute, the round shape is fun, and not something I already had in my wardrobe!
Picking shoes to go with the dress was a bit of a challenge at first, until I remembered my sparkly silver t-straps…I think they’re perfect for a Barbie-inspired outfit!
It’s such a bright and pretty look!
Are you planning on seeing the Barbie movie? I’m probably going to wait until it’s streaming somewhere, but I’m definitely interested in watching it!
I already shared whimsical stylings of the Honesta-May dress from Miss Candyfloss for Star Wars Day and for the Disney 100 celebration…now here’s a look at how I wear it for everyday!
Last spring, Miss Candyfloss had another white dress that I’ve regretted not buying ever since, partly because I really wanted to wear it with the beautiful Elsa-Lee blazer. I may have missed out on that dress, but the Honesta-May, with its lovely embroidery, goes perfectly with the jacket!
I accessorized with blue and silver, including a stack of Splendette Duchess bangles. I also added a lovely hydrangea brooch from Erstwilder.
I love the way the plaid contrasts with the white!
Here’s a look at the dress without the blazer:
This dress is so easy to style…I wasn’t sure I really needed a white dress in my wardrobe, but as it turns out, it’s a very versatile piece!
I have really come to appreciate the Miss Candyfloss playsuit, and I had to have one from the “Lilibeth” collection. The one I fell in love with in the lookbook didn’t make it into production, but the polka-dotted Belicia-Minty was a close second, and I didn’t even have to change the way I had planned on styling the other one too much!
The color is a lovely soft mint, and goes so well with white and silver accessories:
I also added some glittery green bangles to my Splendette stack:
I really love the wide legs!
Because it’s sleeveless, it’s perfect for summer, but I’m also looking forward to wearing it with a cardigan if it ever cools off!
It’s almost time to start dreaming of the autumn/winter collection, and I can’t wait to see what the inspiration for it is!
