Starlight, sweetheart, melody

Outfit Details:
Iron Fist My Little Pony dress: eBay (available here)
Embellished cardigan: Storenvy
BAIT Footwear spectators: ModCloth
Lavender hair bow: Clip a Bow Boutique

Goodness gracious, do I love this dress!  I'd seen a blouse version of this dress in a couple of places, but I'm not exactly a blouse girl.  If it comes in a dress, I'd always rather have that!  This dress was carried by Hot Topic over a year ago, so I thought I'd missed out, but then it dawned on me to check eBay!  I had a lucky guess on sizing (juniors sizing is always a mystery to me) and it shipped incredibly quickly -- and fit perfectly!  The top of this dress is actually really flattering, but I felt a little too bare without a sweater.  I wish I had a plain cardigan that looked right with this dress, but this embellished one was the only one that hit at the right length.  The back heart patch is very My Little Pony. but I fear the combination is a little much.

I'm also thrilled that this design involves the classic My Little Pony cartoon.  I absolutely hate the style of the reboot version; it has none of the charm of the original, and this is how MLP should be.  I grew up watching the show and had a bunch of the ponies (inherited from a family friend's daughter), so I couldn't pass this dress up once I found it!  It's loud, to be sure, but a totally necessary addition to my closet. 

I had planned on posting something else for Easter, but since my hard-drive bit the dust on Thursday night, I had to amend my plans.  Still, this is pretty Easter-appropriate, I think.  I'm going out of town for a week starting on Monday, but I'm leaving my blog in very capable hands!  I can't wait for you to see what some lovely friends of mine have in store during my absence!  Stay tuned!

Have a super Saturday!

  6. I just found you on ModCloth. I would love to have your wardrobe. I am actually on ModCloth shopping for a dress for my upcoming wedding. Do you have recommendations of online shops or brick stores that would sell vintage fashions in a size 16-18?

  10. I love the new mlp and i believe it has a lot of charm for this generation to enjoy. then again i don't remember the older mlp's and also i was raised on Unico and the Last Unicorn, which the new mlp art style is borrowed from. that dress is so cute tho, i wish i had the confidence to pull something like that off
