Why Don't You...?

…transform yourself into a fairy for the day? Make your skin sparkle with mark’s Twinklebelle; accouter yourself in Beyond Vintage’s Sequin Halter Dress; and forgo your typical glamorous gait for a flirtatious flit!

…carry a makeshift candy store in your handbag? Replace your lipstick with licorice whips; cast aside your address book in favor of gummi bears; and switch out your lip gloss for lollipops. There’s no telling when a sugar rush will hit, darlings; it’s best to be prepared!

…wrap yourself up in BB Dakota’s Branson Cardigan Sweater, find a quiet field to lie in, and devote an entire day to dreaming?

…turn off all the lights, and dance in the dark? As the saying goes, “To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.”

…pitch a tent in the front yard and invite your friends over for an impromptu outdoor tea party? Don’t forget to fill your J.W. Hulme Co. Hemingshore Traditional Carry On Weekender to the brim with pretty provisions and scrummy surprises to tide you over for the evening!


Fashionably yours!

I LOVE the idea of carrying candy in my bag and having an outdoor party in a tent at my house - like a mini safari!

Maddy said...

I used to carry tons of sweets in my bag...now I'm paying for it dearly - with my expanding waistline and dental bills ;o) But I have no problem settling for eye candy instead and that Vintage Sequin Halter Dress is just what I need!

Yay for the candy! I always have Trader Joe's chocolates in my purse for an extra pick me up. And I love the tent idea- how fun would a girl's night out sleepover be in a tent? Love it!

I used to carry chocolate around in my purse. This delighted all of my friends because we could always have a sweet treat.

Emily and Abigail said...

lusting that photo.. the colors are beautiful (i'm obsessing over that gorgeous hint of purple) and I carry way too much candy in my bag to be replacing it anymore.. but it tastes much better than an address book (ew i'm way too corny)

Jesson And Rey Ann said...

nice bag, lovely stuffs!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

tea party idea is beyond awesome and I should do that! I used to when I was little. I wish I could make my purse into a candy basket... but something tells me that would be a poor move :)

Sherin said...

Love the idea of becoming a fairy for the day. The Twinkerbelle shimmer would look so great.

Oooo, and turning my handbag into a sweetstore is brilliant.
