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!
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!
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!
Earlier this season, after a long-standing “no linen” policy for my wardrobe, I decided to give a linen dress from Miss Candyfloss a try, and it quickly became one of my favorite pieces. Well I’m back with a second linen dress, the Rebecca-Pia, in the same checkered pattern (but different color), and with my favorite neckline/bodice!
It’s so light and lovely for summer!
I added a sunhat (very practical for summer) and gloves (not so practical, but they look nice!) to my double stack of Splendette duchess bangles:
Since I wore this dress for the first time on my birthday, I made sure to pair it with my Erstwilder birth flower brooch…luckily for me, they’re a good match!
I love the muted shade of pink of the dress!
The one thing I will say about linen is that I find it a bit scratchy…it’s definitely not as smooth as cotton or some of the blends of my other dresses. But it is cool for summer, and once I embraced the fact that it wrinkles, pretty worry-free!
I’m so happy I got the cheerful, sunny Harriet-Naia dress from the Miss Candyfloss “Lilibeth” collection…the color reminds me of the beautiful yellow dress Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wore to the wedding of the now Prince and Princess of Wales.
I know when you wear yellow and black together, you run the risk of looking like a bumblebee, but that didn’t stop me from going with that color palette for my hat, gloves, and Splendette Duchess bangles (plus a splash of purple with my Erstwilder brooch!):
Like the Estee-Spring dress, I wouldn’t wear this one without a petticoat because the fabric is so light and sheer, but that’s ok, because a petticoat just enhances a dress’s twirl factor!
I love how summery this look is!
I’m only waiting for one more item from this lookbook to be released, and then my small “Lilibeth” collection will be complete!
Here’s something you may not know about me…I have long had a “no linen” policy. While I love natural fabrics, not to mention the idea of a breathable fabric in the summer, the way linen wrinkles when you look at it wrong has always made me wary. When I saw the Marcella-Sadie dress in the Miss Candyfloss “Lilibeth” lookbook, though, I wondered if my resolve would waver, because not only is it a style of dress I already like, it’s also a different color from anything I already own. When the dress was released, my resolve completely crumbled, and now, against all odds, I not only own a linen dress, I love it!
I accessorized with an Erstwilder brooch that adds a pop of color, a trio of Splendette duchess bangles, and a summery hat:
I love how light the dress is, and how bold the checkered pattern is, too!
I’m so happy I took a chance and gave it a try!
There’s another linen dress in the lookbook that I have my eye on…now that I know I can not only tolerate, but actually like the fabric, I wouldn’t be surprised if it joins this dress in my wardrobe!
