Sartorial Saturday–Old Hollywood Glamour

It’s finally time to take a look at the piece I most eagerly anticipated from the Miss Candyfloss “Smile with Lucy” collection…the Talise-Dora lace playsuit!

I was so excited to finally receive this beautiful one-piece pantsuit. The lace bodice has almost an ombré effect thanks to the dark brown and sand beige color gradients. It is also adorned with both glitter and sequins…plenty of sparkle for a special occasion or just a random day!

I accessorized with my camel-colored hat, a brown and white Splendette stack of Duchess Bangles, and my one pair of Erstwilder earrings. I also added velvet gloves with a ring on top.

The pants are also a beautiful dark brown, with elegant wide legs.

Here’s a closer look at my accessories and the beautiful lace bodice. I love the attention to detail in this piece…the buttons are even covered in the same lace!

It’s such an elegant and glamorous look!

This was my final purchase from the “Smile with Lucy” collection, which is convenient because Miss Candyfloss has also finished releasing pieces for the season. Now it’s time to dream about what the spring/summer 2023 collection will be!

Sartorial Saturday–Winter Playsuit

The Miss Candyfloss Ramira-Gia floral playsuit isn’t my first playsuit, but it the first I have that is suitable for the colder months!

As soon as I saw this beautiful piece, I fell in love. While Miss Candyfloss makes a lot of one-piece pantsuits, they don’t often make one that isn’t a solid color from top to bottom. My favorite styles, though, are the ones that have a different bodice from the pants. This beautiful floral print contrasted with green pants is outstanding!

My Collectif doctor’s bag handbag is a perfect match!

There is something so elegant about a wide leg pant, yet they’re so easy to wear when the look is all one piece!

I accessorized with blue, green, and cream to go with the outfit, including a stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles and a navy hat:

It’s a great look for winter! (And, speaking from experience, with red accessories, also a great look for Christmastime!)

I’m still waiting on one more Miss Candyfloss playsuit this winter, and that one is the most glamorous yet…stay tuned!

Sartorial Saturday–Clearance Shopping

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!

Sartorial Saturday–Summer Dreams

We’ve had some of the coldest temperatures of the season this week, but I’m dreaming about summer!

The Luzana-Rose playsuit from Miss Candyfloss almost didn’t make it to my wardrobe. Last summer, I ordered it from one of their stockists, because I missed purchasing it directly from Miss Candyfloss. Well, it took months to arrive, and was damaged beyond repair when it finally got to me, so I accepted my refund thought that was that. But the stockist had one left in inventory in my size, and when it went on sale even more after Christmas, I decided to take another chance. Fortunately, this one got to me without incident, and I’m so excited to have it to wear on our big vacation this summer! (I’m planning on making my mid-century modern dreams come true by wearing it when we tour Kennedy Space Center!)

I thought blue accessories would be fun, so I went with my Meteor Jewelry Co. Starlite necklace and bracelet set and the perfect Erstwilder brooch.

I think this is such a fun look!

I’m really glad I took a second chance on this playsuit, and the thought of wearing it on our vacation will keep me warm all winter!

Sartorial Saturday–The Sunsuit

Time to step outside of my comfort zone!

I don’t often wear shorts. I did buy a romper from Unique Vintage last summer, but I pretty much wear it exclusively with the matching skirt, so it barely counts. But when I saw this beautiful Hiva-Blush sunsuit from Miss Candyfloss, and especially the gorgeous plaid of the shorts, I knew I had to give it a try.

I picked some of my most cheerful accessories to coordinate with the outfit, including a Splendette duchess bangles stack and glitter necklace in colors to go with the aforementioned plaid, and my Spiffy the Sausage Dog brooch from Erstwilder:

I also threw on a Yemak cropped cardigan, because even at this time of year, there can be cool days:

But not a lot of them (unfortunately for me!):

I really love this outfit. The fact that sunsuit is comprised of flowy walking shorts definitely helps me feel more comfortable in it (Chickadee even thought it was a skirt at first), and I think I’ll be living in this look this summer!

Sartorial Saturday–A Romp in the Sun

Time to step outside of my comfort zone!

At first glance, this is just another cheerful retro outfit from Unique Vintage. Very summery, very fun, and I love it!

And choosing accessories to go with the cherry print gingham was so much fun, from the stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles to the cat-eye sunglasses:

And then I said goodby to my comfort zone, which I left so far behind, I can’t even see it anymore. Because I wasn’t wearing a plain, simple dress…instead, it’s a romper with a matching skirt. And removing the skirt to go full retro playsuit took all of the confidence and courage I have!

I never would have thought this outfit would work on me. When I ordered it, I kind of expected I would have to return it. The only reason I decided to try it at all was that I have been looking at variations of this set for a few years, and this color and pattern really jumped out at me, and I knew I had to at least make an attempt. In the end, though, I love it, and I’m dreaming of the day I can wear it on vacation, maybe to some sunny place like Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral!
