Hooked on a Feline Dress: ModCloth
Black flats: jc penney (old)

Wicker purse: yard sale
Kudos to June for the title of this post! This dress doesn't get enough love from me. I recently lent this dress to sweet Lauren, who styled it in a few different ways on her blog (here, here and here), and it definitely renewed my love for it and inspired me to wear it more often. It's sort of a loud print, and the dresses I own by Folter Clothing tend to fit me a little snugly in the arm region, so that might be why I don't wear it a ton. But it's a really cool dress, and I really do love this length. I'm becoming increasingly more uncomfortable with shorter dresses these days, and I love that this can work with or without a crinoline. Plus, when it's windy, I don't have to worry so much about flashing anyone!
I don't really wear my hair up very much on the blog (or all that much in general, really). My hair absolutely provides a sense of both security and femininity for me. I always end up feeling sort of masculine/unattractive when I wear my hair up. This hair style was sort of an accident, but I ended up liking it a lot. I was wearing it half up, half down with a lot of extra volume to create a more 1960's look, and then it got too hot, so I ended up pulling up the rest of it. I think the extra height does wonders on me, so I'll have to remember this for the future.
Have a great Sunday!
