I'm dedicating today's post to one of my all-time favorite designers, Stella Rose Saint Clair! ❤ You may know her as one half of the brilliant design duo at Doll Eyes NY or from her former blog, Confessions of a Female Drag Queen. This past month she launched the first ever collection for her solo label STELLA - titled "Superstisia", it features some seriously swoon-worthy designs that are over-the-top cute with a perfectly punky twist. The entire collection is pretty much what dreams (or dream wardrobes?) are made of!

A few gems from the collection include mesh tees appliqued with lipstick patches (I'm getting major Siouxsie vibes from this one), oversize pvc confetti hair bows, and --my favorite so far-- a glittery faux fur kitty stole that doubles as a purse! I think that piece alone proves what an innovative & totally iconic designer Stella Rose is.

More fun details from the line include fang gang bows, graffiti-esque unlucky cats, glossy pvc fabrics, and gorgeous glitter tassel earrings.

You can browse the rest of the collection & even shop it (!) here. I've heard that more designs are soon to be added, so be sure to keep a look out! Meanwhile, if you're in need of a live-action Superstisia fix, Stella Rose also made a promo video in collaboration with Anthony&Alex to accompany the release of the new collection. How lucky are we? Watch it down below...

Even though it's technically fall now, my outfits have been in full-on summer mode lately. Today I went for a ~summertime picnic~ look (literally!) with my new gingham dress, wicker basket purse, and some seriously sweet food-themed accessories.

❣outfit details❣ 
dress - rue21 | strawberry pin - made by me | socks - Hansel from Basel | purse & shoes - vintage

This outfit obviously wouldn't live up to its theme without some sort of food element - that's where these glitter dog & glitter melon patch pins from STELLA come in! They're the absolute cutest and look perfect paired with gingham. A friend of mine was actually kind of confused by me wearing a hot dog pin, seeing as I've been a vegetarian for (basically) my entire life. My answer to that: it's a veggie dog, DUH! o.~ Have people forgotten that those exist?

These pins are still available on Stella Rose's Depop page for a limited time, so head on over there and get one for yourself!

I recently acquired this wicker purse from a local vintage shop for the grand total of $0.00! (in a BOGO deal). I'd been scoping these bags out on eBay and Etsy, but stopped short of purchasing because a lot of them were too pricey. I'm glad I held out! My strawberry socks are Hansel from Basel and were a gift from (a total sweetheart) Lauren at Emerging Thoughts. ❤ I've had them for ages, but have been waiting for the perfect outfit to wear them with...I think I finally found it!

❣ new arrivals: blinking eyes & metallic martians ❣

It's been a while since my last shop update! Things have been slow this summer with Pop ❤ Tones, and I haven't released as many new designs as I was hoping to, but slowly and surely I'm adding new stuff when I can...

These lenticular eye candy rings are one of my latest (& greatest?) designs. Earlier this year when I posted a Judy Jetson-inspired outfit wearing a similar vintage flicker ring, I had quite a few people ask me where they could get their hands on one too, and now I'm happy to say that I can make one like it just for you! ^___^

These rings are currently listed as a pre-order item in the shop because I've sold quite a few of them since they were originally listed and I've run out of ring bases! I ordered some more the other day and they should arrive soon, but until then feel free to order a ring and I'll have it made and shipped to you as soon as my supplies come in.

All eye candy rings come in their own glittery/rainbow (rain-bowed?!) package.

I also just listed these pins in the shop today. I've been wanting to create some alien-themed badges for a while now, and when I got the idea for these metallic martian pins I just had to make them a reality!

Each pin is covered in either rainbow-reflective iridescent glitter or pink/green glow iridescent paper.

I even designed special UFO packaging for each badge to come in! I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out. :)

I also have two coupon codes active in the shop right now: 'welcomeback' will get returning customers 20% off and 'welcome10' will get new customers 10% off. If you've only previously ordered from Pop ❤ Tones when I was running it on blogspot you'll still qualify for the 20% off (I have records from those sales so I'll be able to check!) I'll be sure to keep these codes active for a while so everyone can get in on the sale prices.

As always, thanks for all of your support & for still paying attention to my little shop after (almost) 3 years! I have exciting new designs planned for release in September and October - until then...❤
