what i wore :: pink

:: head to toe ::
glasses :: Coastal
necklace :: gift from Lexy!
dress :: belonged to Ivan's great aunt
belt :: thrifted
tights :: Walmart
socks & shoes :: Forever 21

When I wear this dress I feel very Ziggy Stardust for some reason. I have loved David Bowie since I was a kid (thank you Labyrinth) and lately I have really been enjoying the one David Bowie album I own on vinyl: The Rise & Fall fo Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. It is soooo good.

While I was outside taking these I saw two blue jays hanging out but I wasn't able to get a photo. They were too speedy. Blue jays are a lot larger than I remembered them being and they are so pretty! I also saw a Cardinal in the backyard the same day. It was a bird party!

That door that is falling apart leads to the garage and I love it so much. It kind of needs to be replaced but I just don't think I can do it. The teardrop cut outs are just too good.

  2. soooo.... you're so cute. I was feeling a 'retro Star Trek' vibe - but that's because I still have yet to see Labyrinth!
    Intentional or not - I love how your outfit matches all the peeling paint on the door...ha!

    P.S.. are you back in town before your b-day??

    Great to see you on the weekend!

  4. Great dress, you are rockin a bit of a superhero vibe with the high socks too, love it! P.S. I love Bowie too but was watching Family Guy last night and it featured this video which somehow I had never seen before...

  6. My cousins loved Labyrinth growing up, but it just freaked me out too much. I have since gotten over my fear of David Bowie, though. haha. I love your dress! Your studio is lovely, but it's always fun to see you outdoors :)

  7. Oh my goodness that dress! I LOVE it! You look adorable and ready for Ivan to take you out for a rollerskating date! I love David Bowie too. I only know one person who doesn't love him and I can't believe it! So on a fairly regular basis I ask her if she's sure about that, lol! But, I don't think Ziggy Stardust when I see you in this dress. I think you look more like one of Charlie's Angels :)

  8. Can I tell you a secret? My first crush on a 'real' person (i.e. not astroboy) was David Bowie, and I know every line in the Labyrinth by heart. And I love your dress - the Ziggy swoosh is amazing, and the best part is it belonged to Ivan's great-aunt!! Awesome.

  11. Oh, I love the door! I really think the ruggedness to it is so beautiful! It's creating new patterns on the surface, almost like a painting.

    And your dress is amazing! Very David Bowie, indeed. :-)

    I like that you're title is pink today and Dainty Squid's is blue. It's cute that you're color titles line up.

  15. "You remind me of the babe!" I love everything about this outfit - that dress is beyond amazing! Man, I watched my Labrynth tape so much that it broke... well 2 of them broke - my mum had to keep re-buying it for me. Jarryd the Goblin King = first love haha! That and 'Willow' :)
    I love the teardrop door - I wouldn't be able to replace it either :)

  16. That dress is sooo darling and that color looks great on you! Nothin wrong with a little Bowie! :)

    That door is wonderful, don't replace it! Maybe you can fix it up a little? Either way if you replace it you should hang it on a wall or SOMETHING!

  17. Definitely looks like a perfectly Bowie-inspired dress. So much fun! And I have to say, I'm kind of digging that it looks like it's crushed velvet. Not really a fabric you see a whole lot anymore!

    (Oh and I'm totally with you on the whole Labyrinth thing. I can quote 99% of the lyrics to the entire movie. It'd be almost embarrassing, if it wasn't so awesome)
