#BathingBeautyBombshell week (Meet.Curve)

Well, well, well - long time no see! Things are, erm, different since I last posted. I know, will my life ever chill with the dramatic changes? It doesn't seem so! Since my last post, I ended my serious relationships, packed up my entire life into a storage unit, crashed at my sister's house for 5 months, got approved for a mortgage, got rejected by too many sellers to count, and finally (FINALLY) bought a townhouse in Western, MA in late April (want more of the journey? Head to my Instagram @dressesanddonuts and peep the highlighted story on my profile!). 

I KNOW! What a whirlwind! Never a dull moment...

XOXO (Sarsparilly)

I've been ADORING Sarsparilly lately. After working with them recently, their dresses quickly rose to the top of my list with how PERFECTLY they fit and how lovely the quality of the items I received was. I am still impressed by the pieces.

The Greatest Gift of All (Sarsparilly)

 WTF, it's May!? When in the world did THAT happen? And did I just blog two weeks in a row!? The moon must be full! Mercury must be in retrograde! You get the idea...

I'm back at it with another beautiful Sarsparilly dress. This one BLEW ME AWAY. Fresh from their new Love collection, the Gift dress is quite frankly, a masterpiece. The sateen fabric is such high quality, the bow detail on the neck is exquisite (not to mention tacked down so it stays flat wear after wear!), the peekaboo at the chest is sassy, and the button at the top of the neck in the back is an adorable detail.

Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn (Sarsparilly)

 Well, howdy! Been a hot minute since I last blogged, eh? 😬

The first title that came to mind as I was styling this outfit was Punk Rock Princess but since the dress is called the Shimmy Shake dress, I felt an ode to the band Hello Goodbye was a better fit than Something Corporate. Clearly, Sarsparilly's new Cosmic Girl line has me feeling ALL the 2000's emo punk vibes!

Anastasia We Have Heard on High (Bernie Dexter)

Happy December!

I've had this winter dress for months now, waiting for it to be appropriate to rock some holiday winter glam to give it a whirl. Well, here we are! The first full week of December.

Portabello Road (Retrospec'd)

As you may recall from my last blog post, 2021 has been the year of me discovering and falling head over heels for the vintage reproduction brand, Retrospec'd. First, with the Connie I got second-hand from Bristol and then with the Fifi I bought from Modern Millie with a birthday gift card. 

Well, I guess Retrosepc'd wanted to fuel the Retrospec'd fire in my soul because they reached out to me to collaborate and kindly sent me a new Connie!

Flowers for Fifi (Retrospec'd)

Ever since I received my first Retrospec'd dress second-hand from Bristol earlier this year, the brand has jumped higher on my favorites list. I was impressed by the fit and quality of the Connie dress (and it's now my lucky dress as it is what I wore on my first date with Michael back in May - awwww!) and knew I had to get more Retrospec'd in my life.
