Outfit of the Day: Classic Monster Skirt from Torrid

Our latest outfit of the day is to help you get ready for the spooky season.

This skirt from Torrid features the classic movie monsters of Universal Studios. I love how companies have been re-embracing the classics when it comes to Halloween. I grew up watching these movies on “Sci Fi Theatre” back in Arkansas in the olden times, and I absolutely love them.

The skirt is made from scuba, so it holds it shape nicely while being stretchy and comfy. The sweatshirt is from Target. I absolutely love the puffy sleeves on this shirt. It gives this very casual shirt a very fancy feel to it. Click on the links to buy.

Just as an fyi, Unique Vintage also has classic movie monster wear for this Halloween.

Happy Shopping!

Love, Kim

Outfit of the Day: Halloween Dresses from Rosegal

Our next outfit of the day, or outfits of the day, come from Rosegal.com.

Rosegal (and DressLily) have tons of inexpensive options for standard and plus sizes. It is a great place to shop for seasonal outfits, including these cute dresses I found.

First up is this hi-low celestial dress. The front is very short, so I would advise wearing leggings with it. I paired it with a cute vintage-inspired cardi from Amazon. Click on the links to buy.

Both sites run very, VERY small. So, please check the sizing with your body measurements and not what size you usually wear. Example is that both of these dresses I got in a 5xl. I usually wear a 2xl or 3xl, depending on the brand.

This next dress is so adorable, I will be wearing it almost daily until Halloween. The print is just so darn cute! Click on this link to buy. I also paired this one with the same cardi from Amazon, but in a pumpkin color. Belt is from Torrid.

In addition to the small sizing, a lot of the waistlines tend toward a more empire waist, just as an fyi. Both of these dresses fell on my natural waist, so that was also a pleasant surprise.

It takes a couple of weeks for orders to arrive, so I’d go ahead and get your shop on for Halloween now!

Happy Shopping!

Love, Kim

Outfit of the Day: Blue Front-Knot Dress from Walmart

Our next outfit of the day comes from Walmart.

This front-knot style dress and shirts have been spotted everywhere lately! In addition to being on-trend, this dress is a comfy t-shirt dress that can be dressed up and down, depending on the function you are wearing it to.

I also love the color! However, if you don’t like the color, it is available in 12 different colors!

Pick up your own dress here. I paired it with a hat from Target, pentagram necklace from the Ren Faire (buy a similar one here), shades from Five Below and boots from Lane Bryant.

I wore this all summer with sandals and cute straw hats, but as you can see here, I’m getting you ready for Halloween!

Happy Shopping

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.

I love this dress so much for so many reasons, but the stand-out reason is the detailing on the dress itself.

The basket weave pattern at the waistline nips in my waist perfectly, without sacrificing any comfort.  The detailing on the skirt is so beautiful.  It is the perfect Loki bound dress.

New Dapper Bound: Captain America Stealth Dress

We got to go to our second Dapper Day at Disneyland recently.  We spent a day in the parks and a day at the Dapper Day Expo.  For our parks day, I wore my new Captain America Stealth dress to both parks.

Dress is from Grace Karin on AmazonBelt is from Amazon.  Foam shield from Disneyland park.  Shoes are my DIY saddle shoes, which you can get instructions to make your own here.  For DIY for the star and bars for the dress, click here.

Cap himself said that he had never worn that uniform so well, so he liked it!

Spidey also loved it, and asked if he could “borrow” my shield.

Captain Marvel also loved the look and really liked the idea of comfy saddle shoes!  I also crossed universes and went to Batuu!

Please enjoy the pics and send us pics from your Dapper Day.  We love to hear from you!

Until next time…

Love, Kim and Benji

New Dapper Bound: Captain America Stealth Suit Dress- DIY Instructions

For my latest cosplay, I put together a look for Dapper Day of my favorite Captain America suit, the stealth suit.

The dress is pretty easy to put together.  I found some iron-on transfer paper at a craft store.  With that, a star-shaped cookie cutter and a straight edge, I was able to create the stealth dress.

When choosing your star, make sure you choose one that is good scale to your body.  Then you will need three stripes on each side, again, keep an eye on the scale.  The stripes end at the arms at a 90 degree angle, but are diagonally cut to fit close to the star.  The lengths also vary, with two shorter stripes on the top and bottom and the longest in the middle.

Here are some reference pictures for you:

Here is a shopping guide for the look:

Happy shopping and crafting!

Love, Kim and Benji
