sickly sweet

This outfit is actually from a couple of days ago, but I figured it'd be appropriate to post today seeing as it's kind of Easter-y with all the pastel colors! It was way too cloudy out for taking photos on the day I wore this, but sometimes an outfit is just too good to go without documentation, so I went ahead and took some anyway. Apologies in advance for all the fuzziness in these pics! >.<

❣outfit details❣
dress (worn as a top) - Romwe | skirt - Drop Dead Clothing | socks - ASOS | shoes - c/o Oasap

This sassy necklace is yet another genius design from Ultra Terrestrial. In addition to being super cute it's also functional in the best possible way (i.e. perfect for waving at obnoxious cat-calling jerks on the street!) Aaah, I love it. (●˘◡˘●)

I think it looks pretty rad paired with these hate hearts, too.

My favorite shoes for spring are definitely these mint green loafers from Oasap. I think we can all agree that patent fabric + pastel colors = a total dream combo (!?) I also love the subtle detailing on these socks (those pink bits on the cuffs are actually little hearts!) ❤

❣ new arrivals: rainbow clouds & marbled eggs ❣

I am very excited to announce that there are some new items available over at Pop ❤ Tones today! These two designs have been stuck in my brain for MONTHS and it felt so good to finally be able to bring them to life...just in time for Spring, too! ✿

First up we have these Rainbow Connection badges. They're super glittery iridescent clouds with a little hand painted rainbow on the side. What more could you possibly want in a badge?! 

If pastels aren't your kinda thing, I also made a few of these in a primary/bright colorway.

I'm really proud of these ~psychedelic~ marbled egg necklace pendants. They turned out even better than I imagined! Each one is made from marbled paper (on a finished wood base), some with hand-cut detailing, and glittery resin. I think they're cute enough to wear all year 'round, definitely not just for Easter!

I have even more surprises planned for the shop in the coming month or two, so keep your eyes peeled!

polly pocket

I totally felt like Polly Pocket in this outfit, hence the title! I think this had a lot to do with the fact that my skirt is made from *pastel pink* vinyl and kind of resembles those rubber Polly Pocket doll clothes from the late '90s (anyone else remember them?) This probably doesn't come as a surprise, but I always secretly wished I could have life-size versions of those outfits for myself. ha-ha (。´▽`。)

❣outfit details❣
sweater - thrifted | skirt - Missguided | tights - gift from Kaia | shoes - Gap Kids

A moodboard for what I had in mind when I got dressed this morning. I'm including Jem in here too because she is pretty much the Queen of Pastels, and I also can't wear lavender & pink together without feeling like I'm a member of the Holograms. (・ε-。)

Accessories for today included my favorite iridescent glitter ring (which was a gift from Simona ❤) & a vintage Polly Pocket necklace. ☆ミ

These glittery pom pom shoes were a lucky find from the Gap (of all places!) They were originally from the kids department, but I was able to snag a pair in the largest size available & they ended up being a perfect fit. I'm so in love!

I would be lying if I said that they didn't totally remind me of Meadham Kirchhoff too. (YES, everything is about MK with me. Not sorry! ~fangirl4lyfe~)

♡ do-it-yourself: embossed fabric ♡

It's been f o r e v e r since I last posted about ~crafty~ stuff on here, so today I decided that I'd get back into the swing of things with a new DIY! Embossing fabric with rubber stamps has actually been on my to-do list for a while, but it wasn't until after a recent trip to the thrift store (where I found this velvet crop top & daisy stamp ❤‿❤) that I finally had all the supplies I needed to try it out! Here's how it went...

a wolf in lamb's clothing

This was my ~mourning the absence of Meadham Kirchhoff~ look from last week. Their collections have made such an impact on me that the reality of them not showing at LFW this season left me feeling really sad. As a pick-me-up of sorts, I got all dressed up in some of my favorite clothes (glittery Meadham Kirchhoff tights included!) and snapped these pics as my own personal tribute to my favorite designing duo. ❤

❣outfit details❣
dress - Iron Fist c/o FreestyleXtreme | tights - Meadham Kirchhoff | shoes - thrifted | purse - c/o Jump From Paper

Isn't this bag incredible? Every time I wear it out I always have at least one person come up to me and ask "Is that purse even real?" ha-ha! Despite the fact that it looks like it popped right out of a comic book, it's fully-functional as a purse and is a lot roomier on the inside than you'd think. o.~

I really love the pattern on this dress - it looks a lot like a Meyercord Cuties design at first glance, but if you look a little closer you'll see that the lambs are wearing punky spiked chokers and harnesses. The pink/red/gray color scheme also makes it a perfect match for my glitter tights. ^_^

I continued the glittery accessories theme with these vintage button earrings that I thrifted for 25¢. They have bits of black and silver tinsel embedded into them. ✴

Adorable prints & pleats aside, let's face it - the best part about this dress is that it has pockets! (´∀`*)
