Cupcake cutie

Outfit Details:
Fifi Lapin cupcake phone case: c/o iconemesis 
Nishe cupcake skirt & top set: ASOS (old)
Cardigan: dELiA*s (similar here)
Pink coat: ASOS (similar here)
Tights: ModCloth (similar here)
Cupcake ring: Claytime Designs
White boots: eBay

As you may know, Nishe is one of my favorite labels of all time.  I probably own more Nishe pieces in my wardrobe than those of any other single designer.  I have two dresses from this same cupcake line (see how I wore them here and here), and when I saw this peplum bustier and skirt set last year, I couldn't stop myself.  Although I really love both pieces, I'd never worn either one before this, namely because I've gained some weight back since then and the skirt is not at all forgiving.  I'd wear the top on its own if I could figure out what else to wear it with, but the pink scalloped skirt is so darling, and I feel weirdly guilty at the thought of splitting them up, or loving one half of the ensemble more than the other.  Which sounds super-psychotic now that I read it back.  But suffice it to say that both pieces have been waiting on the hanger for an opportune time.  I knew this outfit would be ideal for this post, in particular, since it encompasses all things sweet, kawaii and pink!

When the kind people at iconemesis reached out to me to ask if I'd be interested in a phone case from their collection to feature on my blog, my eye was immediately drawn to the phone cases featuring the adorable Fifi Lapin, and one sweet case in particular jumped out at me:

My current phone case is actually a rather cheap silicone one, and though I tend to like soft cases rather than the hard shell kind, this one is so charming that I am rethinking my preferences.  I like having the option of being able to switch out my phone's "outfit" to match my own, and although this case probably wouldn't provide quite as much protection as my other phone case, I really love the fact that it snaps on easily and securely, and is all one piece (rather than two that snap together, as has been my experience with previous hard cases).  It's also very helpful that iconemesis provides much of the same case selection for iPhone 4, 4s and 5/5s models; I have the 4s, and it's incredibly frustrating when I see a phone case I love and then discover it's only available for the newest iPhone!  I've already found several other cases I adore on their site (1, 2, 3)!  I've found a new accessory site to love.

  1. The phone case matches you perfectly.

    It is actually rather strange to see you in such a different silhouette though this is adorable and very you still. I bet that peplum would go well over full skirts too, though you don't see that combo often.

  2. This is so precious and adorable, loving it! ♡

  3. Haha, so funny, not psychotic at all.. I totally feel the same about splitting up my two piece outfits. The coral colours is totally flattering. You look lovely :) I need to invest in some Nishe pieces!!

    Love Vanessa xx

  4. Everything is so cute! Cupcakes <3 that phone case is pretty adorable! I used to love the soft ones too until I made the change,

  5. This outfit is just too cute. Pink, scalloped edges, cupcakes..its all too perfect. I'm really loving the phone case as well, too bad I have an Android :c

  6. Love the cute little peplum and the scallop on your skirt! So darling :)


  7. you have such cute jewelry pieces! I need to go back to the brooklyn flea and buy all of the cute little food rings I photographed! I love your peplum, too!!!

    love, polly :D

  8. Gah this look is so fabulous, you are like frilly pink perfection!


  9. I can't even handle how cute that cupcake skirt is. I am looking into Nishe clothing ASAP.

  10. I originally thought the outfit was a dress to start with :)
    The skirt is lovely, maybe it's better to have it as a two piece so you can mix and match it.

  11. You can pull off the most precious things. I swear, the stuff I have ordered from Nishe is SO cute but never fits my body well. I love this on you!
