Beige for burlesque

Well, that subject doesn't sound very exciting, does it? Hopefully all these outfit posts aren't getting too monotonous - I know it can get a bit that way with nothing else in between. I have some other posts planned but I'm chipping away at them slowly, trying to get my brain in the right space for them.

So, for now, another outfit post shall have to suffice! I wore this when I went to see Oh Crumbs! at Gluttony, an excellent burlesque show put on by my friend Clara Cupcakes, and her partner in crime, as it were, Miss Jane aka Milk and Cookies. I can't remember the last time I laughed as hard, or for as long, as I did that night. Lots of cheering, too.

My hair is getting quite long...but still not long enough! My stern face is telling my hair to grow hair, grow. I really love the collar on this dress, too. Maybe it's more greige than beige? Hmmm.

Last week Savers had a 50% off sale (clothes, accessories, etc.) so, of course, I had to go! I didn't see this dress on my first go around the store but, before I went home, I made sure to go back just to double check. And I saw this on the rack. It's got a couple of holes and I'm not into florals or neutral colours for an entire dress, so I just wasn't sure. But I tried it on and it looked pretty great so, at $5, I figured...why not? I really like it with these rust-coloured tights. I tried pairing it with some brighter tights but these worked best. Nice and Autumnal, no?

Oh, and the colours on this Supernatural badge just went so well with the dress. (The badge is from PeppersPins on etsy). I have a few other badges from her shop, but this one is probably my favourite.

Hopefully it won't be too long until I get the more in-depth posts done and back into a somewhat regular blogging schedule!


  1. I - and I suspect just about all your other readers - could never get tired of your splendid, imagination, seriously cute outfits (and the posts you share with us about them), fear not, sweet gal. What a fun pin/badge - and those tights, oooh, that warm brick reddish-brown hue is marvelous!

  2. Oh my goodness I love that badge! You look gorgeous :-)

  3. The collar on that dress is sensational! Such a brilliant shape and a gorgeous figure-hugging cut. Just goes to show that you don't have to wear bright colours or wild prints to look totally eye-catching. You're gorgeous!

  4. yu paired this dress perfectly with those rust toned tights ... the collar is very pretty too!


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
