Thanks to Miss Candyfloss, I’ve discovered how much I love a shirtwaist dress, and I’m so excited that I now have the lovely Isolde-Sun tartan print in my wardrobe!
I’ve always loved the combination of grey and yellow, so this dress is perfect! I love that even though it’s a fall dress, it still has short sleeves, which come in handy around here as the temperature bounces up and down and back again.
Of course I added grey and yellow accessories, too, with a stack of Splendette duchess bangles and an Erstwilder brooch:
I especially love the full skirt and the pockets, and the fact that the buttons are covered in the same plaid!
There’s one more dress from the Miss Candyfloss Toujurs Élégant autumn/winter lookbook I’m hoping to order, and I hope it’s available soon!
Actually, I’ve pretty much been ready for fall ever since our first hot summer day, but now that school has started again, I’m really ready. Fortunately, Miss Candyfloss also appears to be ready for autumn, because not only have they released their new autumn/winter lookbook, Toujours Élégant, they’ve also already made a few of the pieces available! And one of my favorite looks, featuring the Phoebe-Amber tartan swing dress and Elke-Amber short blazer, was available in the very first release!
Don’t you love the fun sleeves on the blazer?!?
I love the color of the jacket (one that’s fairly unique in my wardrobe), and the lovely plaid.
Let’s be honest, though…it’s just not blazer season here yet, which is ok, because the dress is gorgeous on its own…the neckline is especially lovely:
The coordinating belt adds a nice extra pop of color:
I accessorized with a hat that is absolutely perfect with the dress, an Erstwilder brooch, and a fall-themed stack of Splendette duchess bangles:
I love every Miss Candyfloss dress I receive even more than the last, which is really saying something, because every piece I have ordered has been special and made me feel fantastic!
Last week, I shared a bright and bold pairing for my new plaid Long Jun skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing. This week, I’m wearing the same accessories, but I went with a neutral Sabrina top…I love how this outfit has a completely different look!
Don’t purple and grey look lovely together?
Stay tuned for more outfits featuring this gorgeous skirt, because I have several other ideas in mind!
I’m so excited to finally have my black and purple plaid Long Jun skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing! I’ve been looking forward to it for months, ever since Laura Byrnes previewed a sample of the fabric. I’ve been wanting a plaid skirt, and to be able to pre-order one in purple…it was a dream come true! I decided for the first wearing, I’d go bold and pair it with a PUG peasant top in Baton Rouge:
If the plaid didn’t have enough of a Scottish feel, this lovely Jacobite rose brooch from Daisy Jean Floral Designs (an Australian company that is pretty new to me), has me wanting to visit the highlands! I also went with all my favorite purple and grey Splendette pieces (Duchess bangles, a glitter bead necklace, and earrings), to finish the look:
I only had one concern about the skirt when I ordered it. It isn’t made of the standard cotton sateen that I think every other Pinup Girl Clothing skirt I own is made of. Instead, it’s a poly/rayon/spandex blend, and I was especially worried that the weight of the skirt wouldn’t be meet my standards. My concerns were totally unfounded, though…the fabric is not at all flimsy, and has a nice heft for twirling!
This skirt is completely gorgeous, even more so than it looks in pictures. The colors are so lovely and vibrant and saturated, and I’m just in love…it’s definitely going to be a fall staple for me! I just wish my wardrobe had more plaid in it now!
