This is a dress I made.
And in my hand are the broken remains of my bracelet that I accidentally snapped while taking off my cardigan. Don't worry, I fixed it! When I pulled over on the side of the road to take these pictures it was a little colder and winder than I would have liked.
I did originally have a story for you guys about getting yelled at by a cop, but I accidentally deleted the post and now I don't want to retell it. Don't worry, it wasn't that great. Instead, I'll talk about one of the things that defined my childhood. I picked this topic at random just now.

Pokemon! Everyone loved Pokemon at my daycare when I was a kid. Me more than most. I have at least one game from every series, and my card collection is only missing Zapdos and Venasaur (from the original 151). I think I deserve bragging rights. Though the games don't change much in ways other than newer graphics or sillier sounding Pokemon, they'll always hold a special place in my heart, and I'll always buy the new ones. Sometimes there's nothing I want more than to go off on an adventure and just catch 'em all.
And can I just say how excited I am that over 50 people think this blog is worth reading? Seriously.

  1. Aww, your dress is lovely! Name it the Lavender Town Dress in honor of your Pokemon love. ;)

    I was a huuuge pokemon nerd when I was a kid and am only slightly less nerdy about it nowadays. My bf and I have been debating whether we should get B&W 2. Still haven't finished the original B&W yet though :S

    1. OH MY GOD. That is the best idea I've heard all week!

      Same here, the Black and White one is so long!

  2. The dress is so beautiful, love the petal idea so much! You are such a talented seamstress, do you usually use a pattern? I have still yet to try to make something from scratch!

    1. Thankyou! It would be an easy DIY to do to a plain dress, too!

      I'm actually really crappy at patterns haha. I normally just wrap things around my mannequin and cut and sew from there.

  3. I love the look of these pictures. They are perfect.

  4. Love this look! That dress is gorgeous and I love the sweater. Also, I was (and still am) obsessed with Pokemon!
