Minnie Mouse Dress
Dress: I was on a Christmas shopping errand with my mom and little sister when I found this dress, on sale for 39RM (about $9 USD). I fell in love with it, thinking it looked just like Minnie Mouse's dress. Mom said she would buy it for me for Christmas, but I refused the offer, I didn't want to wait till the end of December for this dress, I wanted to wear it now, so I bought it for myself, breaking the fundamental rule of "don't buy anything for yourself during the 3 months before Christmas." It was worth it.
Necklace: Vintage costume jewelry, given to me by my great-grandma when I was 9. It stayed in a box until I started college, but now I love bringing it out with the appropriate outfit.
Bracelet: I bought it in Malaysia, back when I was in high school. I think I bought this one in Kuala Lumpur, though my memories are a little fuzzy. That's unusual, because as you can tell, I generally remember the exact stories behind everything in my wardrobe.
Bow: So predictable, Rachel. It's the bow I sewed for myself and wear all the time. It's the turquoise bow in my blog design header. If I get another sewing machine sometime I'm probably going to make myself bows like this in a dozen different colors and wear them all the time.
Leggings: From American Eagle. These actually were a Christmas present, from Angel in 2012. I thought they were kind of too expensive for leggings, but they're still going strong after three years, so I can't complain. They're my favorite leggings.
Shoes: The ubiquitous pastel polka-dot Keds. I blogged about how I fell in love with them and purchased them in March 2013. They've been a good buy, that's for sure. I thought that we didn't know of any places that sold Keds here, but then we ran into one store at the mall that had them, in a bunch of gorgeous patterns. That would be a cool Christmas present.
P.S. I also had to do a Minnie Mouse pose in my Minnie Mouse dress:
P.P.S This was the day that Angel wore a shirt with us on it on our date around town, just in case you missed it on instagram.
Can you tell I have Christmas shopping on the brain? This will be our first Christmas in several years that is in semi-normal conditions, and I'm excited!
