Lavender Unicorn

Pinup Couture Jenny dress in Lavender

To those who love clothing as much as I do, the word "unicorn" is used quite often.  Usually something that is no longer available for purchase, a unicorn is something that's nearly impossible to find but wanted more than anything to be a part of your closet.  That's how I feel about this Jenny dress.  Obviously, I love all the purple things and having the lavender version of one of my favorite dresses was a must.  I stumbled upon a used one in a swap and sell group and I'm so happy it's mine.  I don't think there's anything more perfect to represent my personal style.  Except for maybe my other unicorn, the dark purple version.  Thankfully I acquired that one last week at work!

I wanted more than anything to wear a full petticoat with this outfit.  All my petticoats are too long for this dress, so I settled for this canvas underskirt instead.  I usually love the subtle volume of the underskirt, but I don't really like it with this outfit.  I can't help that I love a super full skirt!  If a skirt can fit a full petticoat, it should always have one.

I'll be at the Yard Sale all day today!  If you're going, make sure to come say hello.  I'll be working at the checkout area.  Can't wait to see all my fellow bargain shoppers :).

  3. Well aren't you lucky! Just making all your wardrobe dreams come true. ;) Lavender is definitely your color, you look just gorgeous here. Loving the matching purple lip action too.
    I don't really get fixated on particular pieces, but I do get ideas in my head about a certain style or color that I just have to have in my wardrobe, and then the hunt is on for the perfect piece. I guess that makes it just a little bit easier on me, although it always breaks my heart when the most perfect version is some designer and way out of my budget.

  4. With the purple and the white and the hair and the word unicorn I can't help but be reminded of Rarity from My Little Pony. She's the fashionable one, so it's a compliment!

  5. You look gorgeous in this dress – such a perfect complement to your hair. I know what you mean about this particular Jenny needing a full petticoat. I don't think some of my other Jenny dresses do, but I think there's something about the sateen that hangs more heavily than some of the others. I like the different look it gives, but I'd love to see you style it with a full petticoat, too!

  6. Hmmm sometimes if my petticoat is too long, I'll pull it up as far as under my bust! Sometimes the belt I'm wearing over my dress will hold it up! You can also try rolling the waistband - depends how bulky it makes it. Just some offbeat ideas! ;)

  7. I LOVE Lavender and surprisingly it's just one of those hard to find items. Why aren't more people obsessed? (;

  9. You look so gorgeous! The Jenny dress is such a classic design (I think that's the Jenny dress... right?), and that shade is just so pretty -- especially with your hair! ♥
