Once upon a time, I talked about my childhood dreams of being in the circus. When I got a glimpse of this circus tent print dress from my lovely friend Vanessa (aka the Velvet Bird), I pre-ordered it.
This dress is so perfect. It's swingy in all the right places, thick enough to be a proper Spring/Summer dress, and the obvious: IT'S COVERED IN CIRCUS TENTS!
Dress: The Velvet Bird; Hat: Target; Necklace: borrowed from Elsie; Shoes: Dolce Vita from Marshall's; Nail Polish: Essie- ole caliente & tart deco
Can I just brag on Vanessa for a sec? Yes, I do love the girl, but setting my friendship feelings aside, the quality of this dress is so good. I feel like there is often a risk involved in buying handmade because some things feel... well... handmade. This dress looks professionally made and the skirt is even lined! This is exciting to a girl who wears a polyester slip under most of her dresses throughout the summer. Anyway, I'm very proud of that lady. She's making very good things.
