HELLO, I MADE A RIDICULOUS SWAN OUTFIT FOR MOLLY’S HOLIDAY PARTY. It was definitely too much, but also just the right amount, if you know what I mean. It was PERFECT at the unassuming Italian restaurant we went to beforehand.
Especially when we had to wait in the doorway for thirty minutes and my entire outfit got in literally every person’s way.
Not a professional ballerina.
But I did just teach myself how to apply liquid eyeliner.
The sparkle leggings were a last-minute decision, and even though I thought for sure they’d burst apart at some point (I over-estimated the stretch in the fabric), they relaxed into a perfect pair of glitter pants. New wardrobe staple.
The top is beige tulle, double-layered in the sleeves, with floral motifs cut from ivory and blush Chantilly laces, hand-stitched throughout. Exactly 120 circles of flocked, polka dotted tulle are gathered and layered along the bottom. Half of them fell out at the Italian restaurant, so I guess there are only like 60 now, or something.
Took my entire life, and I’ll prob never wear it again, but NBD.
That’s not true, I actually really like the top with jeans, so I guess I’ll be sewing all of them back on. Double-knots this time, braaah.
Avoiding tiny Italian restaurants, though.
The hat is a one-time-thing, but it looks good on my dresser.
I made it by weaving those cheap wire flowers you buy for wedding favors, but then added Swarovski and feathers, obvs.
Daaang, those polka dotted ruffles are actually intended for wedding favors too. [Apparently great with Jordan almonds.]
Keith, we need to renew our vows. I will wear this outfit. GOODBYE.
