Bella Donna

Pinup Girl Clothing Bella Donna dress in Italian landscape

I happened to snap these photos quickly between rain showers yesterday.  I hadn't really planned to take photos at all, but fate allowed me a few minutes before I had to get the heck out of there!  The curl in my hair died as soon as I set up my camera, but at least I got to document this gorgeous Venetian landscape printed dress.  They aren't my favorite batch of photos but I figure I'm probably my worst critic!

Yes, I worked the Dapper Day expo on Saturday but I also did a little shopping.  I bought a few dresses from Heart of Haute for Bianca and I bought this Pinup Couture dress for myself.  They brought some yard sale goodies to the expo so I got it for a steal!  I fell in love with the print and the adjustable straps are a plus.  This dress is absolutely built for a short waisted person.  As a person who is exceptionally long waisted, the straps help balance that out.  They didn't have this dress in my size, so I decided to size up and belt it to fit better.  It just so happens this style runs small so it worked out a lot better than I anticipated.

How cute is my new Erstwilder brooch?  Of course, I love everything animal related so Pete the Pug was an obvious addition to my ever growing brooch collection.  I always forget to add finishing touches to my outfit and usually the brooch is the one that doesn't make it.  But I've been doing my best to accessorize daily and add a cute brooch.  I feel like they're such a conversation starter, especially when they're as cute as Pete.  Erstwilder has an infinite collection of cute animals and a kitschy American Diner collection that was just released.  If you're looking for a stockist in your area or a particular design, email their team at hello(at)erstwilder(dot)com.

  1. Ugh, I am dying over how much I love this print. Makes you want to go to Venice and wear it while being on a gondola. Which I would do completely unironically too.


    Have a great day!
