Comic sans

Outfit Details:
"Sewing Made Easy" Comic Book Dress: Unique Vintage (also available at ModCloth)
No. 2 Necklace: Hello Holiday
Blue flats: Target (old)
Bow headband: Kohl's

Is it really surprising to anyone that I love this print?  A comic book print dress about making dresses?  Come on.  It's very comfortable, and I love that the material is thick enough that I can deal with the pesky open-back-sans-bra issue.  Now I just need to learn how to actually sew dresses myself, so that I don't have to pay so much for awesome dresses like this one!  

I just noticed that the pattern repeats right on the middle seam in the dress in the back.  This kind of thing annoys me, especially because they were so good about making the seams match up with the print in the front of the dress!  

Last time I wore this necklace, it was with a blue and white striped dress, and a reader smartly suggested that it reminded her of a pencil with lined paper!  I thought it was only appropos that I'd wear it with a dress that reminds me of drawing.

In other exciting news, I made my first sale in my shop my closet store this weekend!  A friend of mine from college bought this awesome disco-inspired dress.  If you missed my post highlighting all of the items I have in the shop, you can take a look here.  Or just visit my store!  I have a bunch of great pieces at very low prices!  I just want them to find loving homes.  :)

Have a great Monday!

  1. Do I even need to tell you how incredible this dress is?? Just another one I'm super jealous of. Seriously, it's amazing. I'm really bummed that I have to pay for fixing my parents' car that I crashed (because I'm smart) or else I'd be all over your shop!

  3. I thought this dress was seriously awesome when I first saw it, but on finding out that it has a comic about fashion on it? AMAZING :D So so lovely!
