Our latest outfit of the day is the Aristocats pin-up dress by The Disney Dress Shop.
I love the style of this dress so much!
The color of the dress is my favorite part. I just love that the designer embraced the pink and ran with it. The detailing on the skirt is also so beautiful.
Like all Disney Dress Shop dresses, I love the fit! It is a very fancy looking dress, but as comfortable as a t-shirt. And…pockets! I also love that they added sleeves to this one. I hope they continue this trend with the new dresses.
Our next outfit of the day is my new dragon dress by Retrolicious.
Recently, Retrolicious had a warehouse super sale, and I cleaned up. I really like their take on the “new look” with interesting fabrics. They do have some great mid-century staples, like polka dots and bold colors, but to have a swing dress with dragons all over it, or witches or dinosaurs, really opens up your creativity.
Now, basically a saddle shoe is just what the name implies. It is a shoe that looks like it has a little saddle on it. You can get any color shoe and any color paint and just go bananas if you want to. There are no rules here. You can match them with your outfit. You can get a very inexpensive shoe if you they are for a one-off costume. You can find very inexpensive sneakers in a variety of colors just about anywhere. I chose my shoe because it was super good for walking all day.
So first thing, you need to chose how big or small you want the saddle to be. Choose a natural line on the shoe to mark it. Like in the pic below:
You can see where the stitching makes a guide line for me to paint.
Then you just put a coat of paint on the shoe, wait a day and do one more and you are all set!
And there is the finished product! They turned out great, and have saved my feet at a number of adventures since.
