I have been waiting for months to wear my divine Pinup Girl Clothing Oranges Jenny dress, only to have it turn chilly on the day and I needed to wear it with a GREEN cardi! I have a complimentary orange bolero all ready to go with this dress, but it's still not warm enough.
I also have orange wedges to match but standing all day meant I had to wear flats. Soon orange dress I will wear you as envisioned!
I found a matching brooch from Luxulite (link below) and I made an oranges necklace out of glass.

Yes, I know I'm in a butterfly phase. But they are so prettyyyyyyyyyy.
This time I decided to reverse the wing colors and do white detail with black dots. I stamped the wing lines with a nail plate then hand painted in the fill. Obviously I hand painted them as it isn't the neatest job.
I love Orly Flicker and the firelight glow it gives off under every sort of light. Above photos were under artificial and below is natural light.
I'll be 'over' butterflies soon....promise.

The Pinup Girl Jenny dresses are so versatile, you can wear them in Winter with a coat thru to Spring with a cardi to Summer with a bolero. Because I just don't DO spaghetti straps *any more* I prefer a little something covering my shoulders. You young'un things can wear your Jenny's in your glorious shoulder baring state.
My fabulous new cat eye sunnies are from Sheinside. Their construction is wonderful, each flower is bolted onto the frame! A bargain at $15

Is there anything more pretty than a wonderful holographic polish? And then one stamped with butterfly wings?! FNUG Futuristica is especially pretty in a pale blue holographic.
This time I used the FNUG Aqua Fix base coat and it made a huge difference to the application of this polish. Usually holo's go on quite patchy, but I was able to get 2 smooth coats with the Aqua Fix.

It's finally Spring!
While just a tad chilly still, I needed to pull out a new cardigan from Pinup Girl Clothing. This cropped cardi is a gorgeous cool Mint color and very reasonably priced. The whole ensemble screamed for red cherries and kissy shoes. So I obliged.
