Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Dark Paradise



How ludicrously charming is this lil ensemble?  The dress with its little print and cute sleeve buttons...the Audrey kitten heels...the lace gloves...the back-seamed pantyhose...

I've worn this dress before, but this is the first time I had a crinoline to go under it.  I never even realized how incomplete this dress was without a crinoline!  Holy moley! 

The cuteness factor was raised by, like, a billion percent.

And I'm really feelin' it in these pics...Can you tell?  :)





Found a new place to take pictures: I can balance my phone on my nightstand and stand in front of my BLUE wall. 
Just a little bit blue, right?  haha Yeah, this crazy color is actually in my apartment.  For now, it's confined to just one wall of my bedroom, but I have a sneaking suspicion this happy color just might overflow onto the rest of my bedroom's walls soon...


Dress: thrifted (Goodwill) || Crinoline: Dime A Dance secondhand vintage shoppe || Tights: thrifted (Goodwill/orig. Target) || Shoes: thrifted || Gloves: old (either from Forever 21 or Hot Topic) || Belt: White House | Black Market




So my family and I went out to dinner at a cute little Italian place...


We had fun.  :)  My grandparents, my parents, and this strange kid pictured with me above.  ;)

I kind of matched the décor at this place.  :)  But I was too embarrassed to do a photoshoot there, and it was waaaaay too dark.


I did try to get a picture of a picture on their wall though.  As we were eating, my mom suddenly exclaimed, "Oh, Cait! She looks like you!" and ran over to this picture on the wall.  :)  I'm proud to look like whoever this lil flapper girl was...ain't she adorable?

 
Thanks,
as always,
for reading!!!
