Confectionery As A Dress



I can't decide whether it's a giant cupcake or an ice cream...but I somehow feel rather edible in this dress!





Sick of having nothing to wear for those grander occasions in life (no really, it's true), I've been on a wee spending spree of late, and this is one of the spoils.




Being an original 50s tulle ball dress bought on the cheap, it isn't without its issues. It would originally have had 2 flowers along the top of the bodice here, but only one remained.




I calmly pulled it off and sewed it on to a hairclip, et voila, it's a matchy-matchy made in heaven that also hides regrowth.




The matching tulle wrap is sweet, but this beaded angora bolero is more suitable for winter evenings.











Now I just need a dressy occasion to present itself!!

Ohh! You do look rather delicious Kitty. The dress is BEAUTIFUL.I love the frills along the skirt.

I want a 50's party dress for myself in green. Every now and then I scour the web here and there. But when I do see ones that are dreamy... I always say to myself "But when will I wear it" Maybe I will put it on my Christmas list. And wear it on New Years!

It's beautiful - I think it's the lemon cup cake colour and the fluffiness of the skirt. The brooch and cardi go so well with it too x

Oh wow! You look absolutely stunning! I love everything about this outfit. Just beautiful. Eric my cat is hysterical, although not too impressed at being wrapped in a towel four times a day so I can give him the eye drops he needs due to his injuries from kung fu fighting. I'm so glad I'm the one who feeds him otherwise he'd take my face off! Big hugs, Em x
