OOTD- Gotta Get This Bird Off My Chest





It's an attack of the pretty birds!!!! I have to confess that I really don't like birds: Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds terrified me, they fly way to close to people's heads and let's not talk about the popping on you while flying. Despite my displeasure for the real things, I couldn't pass up this dress. It's equal parts ladylike in shape and whimsical in design; a sophisticated article of clothing that doesn't take itself to seriously. Perfection!

I picked up this ribbon over the weekend and had intentions of creating a cute ankle tie for some shoes, but that didn't quite work out because the picture in my head didn't match what the shoe actually looked like. How could I not know what my shoes look like? I've had them for over a year! It was a good thing I really looked at the print on this dress and saw dots on the little birds. That previous unnecessary ribbon purchased turned out to be the perfect outfit topper.

  3. What an adorable dress! I actually LOVE birds, but I know that having a phobia of them is pretty common. Sometimes I wonder if Hitchcock's movie is the cause, just like how Stephen King's It is the cause of so many clown phobias (including mine, hahaha)... hmmm... The ribbon is a perfect touch, too -- how funny that it was originally meant for something else! ;)

  5. Thanks guys!!! Glad you like my little birdies. :)

    Amy, I think the clown fear comes from Poltergeist too. I had a nightmare of a clown coming to life and chasing me after watching that movie. And let's not talk about how it terrified/tramautized my brother, lol.

  9. That dress is so cool! I like that the birds are sort of color washed to look like pop art.
