cotton candy
I have dreams of a summer fair filled with ferris wheels and carnival games where I can win a prized stuffed animal. I haven't been to a fair since 2003, so a night spent wandering through a funhouse  would be quite welcome. Since my summer fair wishes haven't come true, I settled for some cotton candy and a carnival-inspired vintage dress. This handmade beauty is one of my favorite dresses since it reminds me of summertime with its pastel color palette. And I was one lucky girl when I spotted these vintage Ferragamo Bow Flats for only $12.00 at Treasure Mart. Only if I had a fair to wear this to...

Wow orange!! In Australia we call that fairy floss... but I have never seen orange before!

You really know how to dress girl!! I love the orange cotton candy:) I've seen pink, purple and blue, but never orange.

This combo is great! I love the lace jacket. It really sets off the stripes in the dress.
I've never been big on carnivals, but this outfit would be the perfect thing to wear.

I don't mean to get too excited but this is the best outfit ever of all time! lol. I ADORE the lace jacket, and the colours of the dress, AND the ivory ferragamos. Le sigh. I really wish I could raid your wardrobe right now :) Are those vintage stores you speak of online shops? Excuse my ignorance x

Oh wow, I am completely in love with that dress. Candy colored stripes ...what more could you ask for?:) Definitely brings back sweet memories of the carnival that used to come through town when I was young. Quite perfect indeed!

I can't express how much I truly adore this outfit... This dress was perfectly made for you and you're right; it reminds me so much of a carnival! I love the cotton candy prop, too. So, so cute! :D I must use this as inspiration for my town's carnival that is coming up in a few weeks :D

This outfit would definitely would be perfect for a summer carnival or autumn fair... I'm hoping to get to the Chicago-area fair this year.

Love your cotton candy colored bag too and the idea of wearing a vintage bed jacket as a little shrug!

ana b. :

I love this outfit to bits and the candyfloss is like the cherry on top. I hope someone grants you your fair wish soon :) I always eat too much junk and then get on the rides and then have to go home 'cause I feel too sick.
