Flower Fairy



 This picture is a demonstration of why I don't smile in blog pictures. Disregard my expression of discomfort/creepiness and look at the pretty flowers instead.
DIY flower crown, thrifted sweater and skirt, target socks, forever 21 shoes

When I wore this outfit to school one of my classmates said to me, "is there any reason for the 'flower fairy of the forest' getup?" I cheerfully told him no, I just wanted to wear a bunch of flowers. He walked away not knowing that he had just given me one of the highest possible complements a person can give me.

I'm really excited about this sweater. It was a lucky find at a thrift store I had never been to before. Most of the stuff there wasn't nearly weird enough for my taste, but I found this shrunken grandma sweater hidden on a rack and it was love at first sight! The first time I wore it I made the unpleasant discovery that it is the itchiest thing ever to come in contact with my skin. Being the clever individual that I am, I figured out that if I wear a long sleeved top underneath it, I can wear this beauty in relative comfort. Hurray!

I'm also quite proud of this flower crown. I assume that most of my readers also read Rookie and have seen this fabulous crown tutorial. This combines two of my favorite things: flowers and putting weird shit on my head. I of course had to make one, and I'm thrilled with it! I hope to make many more, especially now that I know my neighborhood dollar store sells great kitschy fake flowers.

  4. @aptlyfictional: I totally did! My mom gets a little weirded out at how much time I spend shopping for little girls' clothes, since I'm always looking for peter pan collar shirts there too.
