This post is a shiny plastic dedication to Rebecca at Winnipeg Style, whose aesthetic is informing mine today. She’s impeccable at pastels with plastic mod accessories, which I’d wanted to try for a while.
I don’t actually celebrate Easter, but I never miss the chance to embody a holiday. Just pretend my bow is a set of bunny ears and my fingernails are lacquered edibles. Any and all egg puns are welcome. I wish I hadn’t left my bonnet at home over spring break.
I present to you my thoroughly queered Easter ensemble. (I keep getting the urge to use “queer” as a verb. My case of postmodernism is serious, you guys. Somebody – 5 CCs of objectivism, stat!)
Seriously, though. I really love highly stylized takes on traditional attire. There’s something deliberate and controlled about it.
I got a straight-up vintage Laura Ashley dress for $10 at Classy Closet. (Did anyone else grow up reading the Baby-Sitters Club? Remember how Laura Ashley was the absolute height of preteen chic? [By the way, if you did read them, you should read my parodies on LiveJournal. There’s a surprisingly thriving mock-your-childhood-favorites community there.])
It has a pocket!
Pink and white is a really underrated combination. It’s not just for infants and Lolicons.
Dramatic floor-length dresses are thoroughly impractical for Vermont. One of the many, many reasons I’m looking forward to New York
