Sailor Mars / Earth From The ISS

dress is from Clear It (Dangerfield) | bag is thrifted | shoes are c/o Yeswalker | cardigan c/o Sheinside(?) | socks from a market stall

I have had this dress for months now, and I don't know why I haven't blogged about it yet - it's definitely one of my favourites! Maybe it was because I was subconsciously waiting to re-dye my hair, because the dress goes really well with red curls! Always a sucker for sailor-style dresses and twirly skirts, I feel like I'm channeling Sailor Mars a little bit in this outfit. I had had my eye on this Dangerfield dress from about April this year, and happened to find the dress marked down to a ridiculously low price (from the original $88) in Dangerfield's clearance store. My heart broke when I saw that the only one left was a size too small - but I decided that I would just have to squeeze into it, because I couldn't not buy it. I don't regret my decision at all :)

If, like me, you think that Gravity was kinda incredible (I was inconsolable for long stretches of that film - luckily we saw it in a near-empty cinema because I was doing some serious sobbing), or even if you have any passing interest in astronomy, you'll love this video: a gorgeous 3-minute compilation of videos taken from the international space station, looking both down on Earth at night, and up into the rest of space. Enjoy!

I hope you're all having a lovely day,

  5. Oh, how I love a good Sailor Moon reference. And you're right -- this dress looks a lot like Sailor Mars. Beautiful. I'm loving that you're showing your real hair more often, too. You are beautiful, Annika!

    Love, Amy

  9. I really like the dress but I think the best part of the outfit is the socks. Those are adorable. I wish I could pull off socks, buckle shoes and a dress but unfortunately I can't :( So I'll just have to envy you from a distance instead!

    1. Why on earth not? You should give it a go! I think the idea that certain people or body types "can't pull off" certain clothes is silly. I will dress in any style I please, no matter whether or not I'm supposed to be able to "pull it off" because of how I look. :)

    2. I've tried in the past and it was just uncomfortable :S
      Maybe I need to try a different sock/dress/shoe combo?! This may well have been the problem.

  14. This dress is seriously so awesome! I wish I had one! I have a white sailor dress but I feel like I'd wear red way more often. I love your little heart socks paired with it. Such a perfect outfit.
