Fairy in a Bottle

dress: c/o sugarlips, sandals: target, purse: thrifted
When I received this dress from Sugarlips in the mail a couple days ago and tried it on, my first thought was: fairy. I figured that if I crafted together tulle and some sheer, glittered fabric, then strapped it on my back as wings, I would most certainly look like some enchanting little mythological creature. I entertained this thought quite excitedly because who wouldn't want to be a fairy? The dress is really a pretty little thing though. I'm decidedly in love with the asymmetrical/ high-low hemline. This is my first garment with this sort of hemline, but I hope I find more because they are incredibly fun! I know some people hate them (what with the name, "the mullet skirt", I understand why...), but I personally find it lovely. Your thoughts on the trend? Apparently it originated in the Victorian era, which is fascinating to me.

As I've mentioned before, I've been hanging out with more people lately and doing some fun things, one of which includes going to see Moonrise Kingdom! I know, I'm a bit late getting on board that train - but I saw it and that's what matters! And dang. It was good. After Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom, I can truly say I'm a fan of Wes Anderson. His delivery of themes and just the aesthetics of the film were truly beautiful. Not to mention Moonrise Kingdom was set in the 60s. Even better! Also, my desire for a record player has greatly increased after seeing the movie. As well as my desire for saddle shoes ("Sunday school shoes")... Well, happy Friday! xx

  1. I really love the dress. The mix of ruffles, lace and uneven hemlines, oh and then theres the pretty pattern aswell.

  2. A beautiful dress indeed! I'm still on the fence as far as "mullet skirts" go. I usually think they look odd, but I do appreciate the shorter ones, like this dress:)

    I loved Fantastic Mr. Fox too, but I recently tried the Darjeeling Limited and just couldn't finish it, so I'm really not sure if it would be wise for me to spend money on a movie ticket... perhaps I'll wait for the tv premiere?!

    This dress does make you look like a fairy, and a lovely one at that! I love the soft color of that dress and the uneven hem. Your makeup is so very pretty, too!

  5. i love wes anderson films so much. i think moonrise kingdom might have overcome my favorite life aquatic, but i love them both. he's a brilliant director.

    and i love this color on you - it's such a nice dress too. and i think i have that same beetle necklace maybe. it looks the same.

  6. Love the lace edging on that dress. Also very jealous you got to see Moonrise Kingdom (and now you know someone even more late to get on the band wagon than you...movies like that rarely come where I live!)

  7. So darling!! This will be a perfect dress to wear in New York!! All the shots are great but that one of you sitting on the curb is especially different and fun - Sugarlips is lucky to have you! xoxo

  8. That dress is perfect on you!

  9. you do look very fairy like and lovely in these photos and in that dress. a perfect fit.
    moonrise kingdom is amazing!

  10. You are gorgeous! And that dress is so pretty.

  11. I love the hi-lo hem! I think it's adorable! It can be overdone, but I like how it looks on this dress!

  12. I want a hi-low skirt so badly, but all the ones I find are way too short in the front. Boo!

    Anyway, your outfit is gorgeous and I love these photos! <3

  13. Aw this is so pretty! I really love the color of your dress. It reminds me of a fairy a little bit too. Probably because it's nice and flowy and the color is so natural looking.
