the Zodiac Dresser: Cancer

Welcome to another installment of the zodiac dresser, my series of astrologically inspired outfits.  Cancer is the loyal, feminine and sensitive water sign behind today's post.

Because seafoam green and silver are the color associated with Cancer, I felt more influenced by a mermaid than a crab, this sign's traditional symbol.

Cancer is linked to the stomach and breasts, hence my choice of a 50s wiggle dress with internal boning for an enhanced waist.

I meant to wear this very mermaid necklace but forgot. Oops.
In conclusion: Happy Birthday to my two favorite Cancers, my mama and college pal, Sonya.
