Weekly Wears: Twinkle

Dress: c/o Choies;  Tights: c/o Choies;  Skirt (under dress): ModCloth;  Clogs: Lotta;  Scarf: Vintage

So, who else was obsessed with stars in the 90s?  Oh right... everyone.  I was really into making bracelets as a kid (uh, and teenager) and I remember my favorite beads were those glow-in-the-dark star beads.  You knew I REALLY liked you if your bracelet had one of those.  I still have a handful of them stashed away in my "special box".  I told you... I'm a saver. 

You know my 90s-loving heart fell hard for this dress.  I couldn't even help myself.  It's a little on the shorter side for this lady, so I tucked a soft and stretchy skirt underneath.  Problem solver I am.

I hope you all are having a lovely week so far!

  15. Hi Miss Katie!
    A few weeks back you were wearing a pair of Levi's and you told me they were 535 jeggings but thick enough to be jeans. Well, I stumbled across a pair at a thrift shop for $8 and they fit like a dream! Thanks so much for telling me what they were!

  20. Hi, Katie!
    I've been following your blog for quite some time now, but I've never left a commet before.
    Today I saw this and I just thought "it looks so much like her", haha. I know it is weird to think something like that about someone you've never met, but anyway, I really think you'll like it. :)

  25. never thought to put a skirt under a dress to lengthen it. Such a great idea!! I'm 5'10" - i run into the wayyyy too short dress problem often. Thank you for the great idea!

  26. I pinned this outfit because I think it's GENIUS!!!
    So many cute dresses are just a bit too short, this is the perfect solution!!!!

    p.s. i totally had bracelets with glow in the dark stars. I also had a ceiling covered in glow in the dark stars. To this day my parents complain about the blue sticky tack i used to put them up that is forever stuck to their pop corn ceiling :)

  32. Love it! I hear you about stars! There was this musician called Miss Angie and on her first album cover she wore stars on the corners of her eyes. I totally channeled her when I was in 9th grade. I used those metallic ones teachers use for sticker charts! Everyone thought I was weird. I thought I was so cool. True story.
