So, as you may have noticed, I've been tinkering with my blog a bit. It's not good for my thesis, but it makes me feel a lot better. I'm all about getting things in order and making things look pretty. I just may be a weeee bit of a perfectionist. Maybe. 

Anywho, I've been itching to wear this dress for a while even though it's really a bit too big for me. I only bought it for the skirt, really, so one of these days I'll have to lop off the top part. I felt like a ballerina in this dress with the frills and the tights. But with the jacket and the ring, I thought I looked like a biker ballerina. Like a bad-ass Natalie Portman. Only Asian.

Have a great rest of your weekend! ♥

  4. That is such a cute outfit and you look stunning! I got a tutu skirt recently, but I've been hesitant to wear it b/c it's so ballerina-esque. But i LOVE how you made yours more wearable and tough looking.
    And I am so sad that steve & barry's closed!

    I need a ruffly black skirt. Badass ballerina, indeed.
