obsessive outfit of late plus new piercing and natural hair

Do you ever want to wear the same thing over and over? I've been wearing this dress pretty obsessively since I got it about a week ago. (Which is also when I got my smiley piercing, which you may only barely be able to discern in this picture.) Here's me at a friend's house with his adorable munchkin who was mesmerized by the tripod:

Like the koosh ball? The best part of this dress is the way it moves. The top is a bit big but wearing it off the shoulder actually makes it seem more casual, a plus.

*vintage 50s dress: nobody's baby
*90s see-through platforms: combining my love of clear plastic shoes with platform wedges
*vintage 70s belt: thrifted years ago in Virginia

Here's a close up:

Yes, those are sequins, applied to the bottom of the dress.

I also wore this dress to...

get cake! doesn't it look like Ralph Steadman wrote my name?

And to...

Bingo night! While I didn't win this prize, I had to get a picture of this hilarious slogan.
Hopefully I will start wearing a new dress soon. What's your most recent obsessive outfit look like or are you above that nonsense?
til next time


  1. I totally get hooked on an outfit every once in a white! Right now it's my cotton 50s halter dress, so comfy and cool!

  2. had to say at soon as possible, you look great! i wouldn't have pegged that as a dress style that would necessarily flatter you, but it DOES! it's a beautiful dress... if you've got to wear somethin' over and over, might as well look good!
    i didn't realize that was a koosh ball til you pointed it out. i thought it was a large rock.
    and yes, looks like Ralph Steadman did your name... and that he got an unexpected outflux of chocolate around letter i. :p

  3. Your dress is gorgeous!! I do that all the time, I have a favourite outfit and wear it non stop!

  4. I do like the way that dress "flows" even on a still photo! I haven't worn anything obsessively because I do just the opposite... I forget about something after wearing it once then move on to something else. It's horrible. I'm trying to get into the habit of remixing.

    Thanks for the comment on thrifting! :)


  5. ooohh, do share! I want a fifties halter so much, no wonder you can't stop wearing it
