Cajsa sent me the link to this spooky diner, which I didn’t really think was that spooky more like, greasy and unkempt.
I picked up this dress at FLF from This Is A Fawn and it’s a pretty summer dress with a really nice linen texture. It’s a quickie today for me as it’s a beautiful Sunday in the RL so I’m about to run off to it.
I love many things about this dress from bubble that’s on sale at the Chic Limited Cherry Blossoms event, though it began as a babydoll before I lowered the skirt to my waist. I am never a big fan of babydoll dresses and often try that, but it doesn’t always work as well as it did with this dress. As you can see, this dress comes with a band that anchors the skirt so just increasing its size a bit made it look very natural at the natural waist. This lets me really enjoy the wonderful sense of playfulness in the dress design. I love how the fabric choices almost suggest a wall treatment with the more subdued black on black pattern meeting the vertical stripe pattern “wainscoting” and the cherry blossom border print “chair rail.” It’s cute and clever and makes a gorgeous dress.

It was a dark and stormy night in Borobodur. I had come unprepared for the wind and the rain and desperately wished I had brought an umbrella and was not wearing open-toed sandals. My feet were wet and my shoes slipped on the rough stone stairs. I shivered as sheets of rain poured down soaking through my clothing.
Then I changed my windlight settings. The outfit I wore to Borobodur was a cotton candy confection of pastels and springtime inspirations. It all began with the delicate floral Spring Forward tank from Ingenue. It’s beautifully made with excellent attention to details that we have come to expect from Ingenue. The minty color make me think of these leggings from Bubble that had sat in my closet waiting for their moment. I added the sweater from Tuli because springtime weather can be unpredictable. I was prepared for breezes, but not for downpours.
