My petticoat arrived!!!!! Aaaaaah I’m telling you, I have hardly ever been so in love with a garment as with this crinoline. I was so excited to pick it up at the post office when I had gotten notice of its arrive, and after I hurried home to open my package, I was reminded of the reason I love tumblr so much: I got prettiest little card to thank me for my purchase!
Of course I’m going to be wearing it with all my retro full skirted dresses NON STOP (check out my twitter feed for some pics of it under one of my vintage dresses), but I wanted to let it take center stage in an outfit post before I’d use it as an undergarment. The frothy fulness is just too pretty to hide!
My styling today might look familiar to some of you. Every once in a while, even a non-designerlover like yours truly finds herself enamored with a collection. Moschino’s 2012 resort collection was love at first sight for me: the sweet colors, the detailed put-togetherness of the styling, the pairing of prissy retro garments with relaxed hair and practical flats: all of it was very much Alexa-esque, but with a bit more Mad Men sprinkled on top. Basically my dream collection, yep. There was one look that REALLY stood out to me, people that follow my tumblr have probably seen it being reblogged about 5 times since I reblog it EVERY time I see it on my dashboard.
Sweet, lovely perfection. I knew I had to try and recreate it the moment I laid eyes on this silhouette, so I did! My hair was a quicky and my cardigan and sandals aren’t nearly as pretty, but I’m still pretty glad with how this one turned out.
