Sweetness, I Was Only Joking

I might be all into head-to-toe black and Beetlejuice and Wednesday Addams and early 90s revival one day, but let's be real, the majority of my personality is still really, really twee. I can't really help that I love, and I mean really freaking love being a girl. I've written about this in the past, but intentional, conscious, femininity is something that I have an enormous passion about - and a lot of fun with. So lace, peter pan collars, little embellished details, lipstick... Well, let's just say I have a hard time resisting. Yes, even in the hot, sweltering summer, I make room in my wardrobe for lace details -- I just ditch the requisite undershirt.

  8. This is absolutely perfect. I've been eyeing that Carmakoma top for ages and I was wondering if it would translate well on a person that wasn't the model on the website. It looks gorgeous on you.

  9. i think maybe your style is changing, or not, but i think you emphasize your girly self lately and i think it looks really incredible on you! especially the way you handle the details and the accessories, they are always picture perfect! so much in love with that belt

  10. You're ridiculously cute! I feel like I don't have a certain look or style. I like to try out lots of different things, and I'm constantly playing dress up. I'm okay with that :)

  14. I come back to this blog again and again because I love your intentional approach to femininity. As a feminist who loves fashion, it's refreshing and delightful to read someone who can balance the traditional aspects of femininity with a deeper knowledge of gender and society. Also, love the shoes.

  18. I love this post. I completely identify with you, even though as a young girl I would hate to wear anything to girly since I was a bit of a tomboy. Love the sunglasses.

    Stay fab,

  19. Great post - great outfit!  I am crazy about the lace, and the shoes!!  As a large-chested girl, I can truly identify with your lace/no undershirt option!  I've let that hang up go recently, and I'm not as young as you are!   You look gorgeous!
