I was Never Much of a Peter Pan Fan

I mean, Hook was pretty cool. But the cartoon just never really did it for me. How could it stand against my childhood favorites like The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin? However, I’ve got a real thang for peter pan collars right now. They’re a little innocent, reminiscent of British school children. And secretly, I wish I was British.

I even say “bloody hell” on occasion.

pants- Gap
shoes- Dolce Vita

I found this dress at Rescue Consignment and fell in love. I’ve never actually worn it as a dress, though. I always tuck it into pants. Eventually I’ll get off my ass and bring it to the tailor and have the bottom hacked off.

I’m surprised at how relaxed I look in this picture, since I risked life and limb to pose in that particular spot. Don’t believe me? LOOK.

No, I’m not overreacting. I’m quite sure he could have killed me in one swift motion.


And I decided to move my arm party down to my feet. Warning: close-up of feet up ahead!

It’s about two…thousand coats of Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday nail polish.

    You appear to be risking life and limb here for the sake of this post. I can not condone this, especially with big bad spiders like that about. But then again, the outfit is pretty damn adorable…….

    Tell me you killed the spider? Or shooed it off somewhere far away?

    Love the sparkly polish with those DV shoes!  I’ll join you in the Peter Pan club since I was never a big fan, but I DO love the Peter Pan collars.

    Love the peter pan collar on you, and totally agree with the Hook (being great) and the cartoon (not so much) mention. And, my lawdie! That is the scariest spider I’ve ever seen on a fashion blog! Major kudos for you working up the courage to shoot by that and look so natural! Next America’s Top Model is calling ;)

    Ah, the life of a fashion blogger. Braving life and limb to get THE SHOT. I’m kind of in love with your feet in this post. Fabulous shoes and love the sparkles! I have a love/hate relationship with glitter nail polish, and it is in line with your comment – I hate how it takes a zillion coats to cover, and it seems to chip off so quickly!!
