La belle et la bête

Outfit Details:
Short petticoat: American Apparel (similar here)
Belt: from another dress
Shoes: BAIT footwear (on sale!)

I have been admiring this kooky dress for a long time on various wholesale websites.  I really love the print of the dancer next to the bull.  It's probably more of a flamenco (and matador?) print, but it reminded me a lot of Beauty and the Beast, which made me thing of France more than Spain, and of ballet more than the fandango.  The dress itself is obscenely short on me, so I knew I had to wear something over it (wearing something under it, like tights or leggings, wasn't even an option).  This petticoat skirt is quite short on me, too -- the only time I've ever worn it was for a costume party in college.  It's pretty obvious that this is just a fantasy ensemble; I can't think of any occasion to which I would (or could!) actually wear this.  But since the dress was only $10, it's not a total loss.  I just wish the graphic weren't lopsided!  I suppose you get what you pay for, though.

While editing these, I realized that this kind of reminds me of something that Annika from The Pineneedle Collective might wear.  She always looks amazing in her short-short skirts and outfits from wholesale websites.  I credit her with even finding this dress in the first place, since I found it on a website that she posted for another item.

In other news, I have my first(!) driving lesson this afternoon.  Having never even been behind the wheel of a car before, I'm pretty anxious about it... Wish me luck and have a beautiful Thursday!

Oh, and don't forget to enter my first-ever giveaway!!
