What I Wore: Dress (Borrowed from Erica of Sweets and Hearts), Belt and Shoes (Old), Petticoats (David's Bridal)

Hey all, It's me Kristian, and- whad'ya know! I'm in a petticoat. If you follow along either with Flock Together, or at my blog Never Fully Dressed (Without a Style), then you know me and petticoats. So when I received this nautical-themed red dress from Erica of Sweets and Hearts, and saw what a gorgeously fully skirt it has.... I knew it was Petticoat Time (like Hammer Time only less violent).

This all brought to mind the retro vibe of another Flock Together Gal- Katie.  On her blog, Butterflies Love Snapdragons, she is always sporting lovely vintage hairstyles, so my single Victory Roll is in tribute to her.

As you can see, this dress has been a favorite at Flock Together; below you can see how the other girls have styled it.

  3. Oh my gosh, you are the sweetest thing!! That was the first thing I noticed-your gorgeous hair! It suits this dress perfectly. One thing on my list of 'wants' is a full petticoat. I can't seem to find one in a thrift store, I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and buy one online or something. I never thought of David's Bridal, but I should look into that! I really love how it adds some length to this frock too. Also, I should tell you-I always enjoy the scenery in your photos. You really know how to showcase an outfit by choosing the best location, something I need to work on!

    1. Really surprised you don't have a petticoat yet, actually! But they are expensive online. This one from David's Bridal is actually rather long (it is "Tea Length" and rolled several times. I think Amazon has some that aren't too badly priced.

      Yay for pretty vintage hair! So excited to see more tutorials from you :)
