A Pink Spin Around the Carousel - Bonne Chance Collections Dress & Popcorn Purse Outfit

Pastel Carnival Carousel

      I don't know about you, but, when I was a kid, one of my favorite rides was the carousel. Something about it was just like magic. Probably the lights, the colors, the horses - it's all sparkly and beautiful especially when you're younger! But, I have to admit, it's been years, probably since I was a little girl, that I've been on a ride around the carousel. Life gets crazy, busy and stressful as we get older, but this summer I gave myself permission to act like a child even though I'm 27 years old now.

So, a few weeks ago, when my I and my fiancé were walking around the mall, I spotted this amazing carousel! I immediately wanted to ride but we found out it was closed. The person who was running it got off early. I was pretty bummed, but I felt like I was dressed up for a carnival ride so I had Jordan take a few outfit photos anyway (gotta make the best of it right?).

Bonne Chance Collections Dress Review

This frilly pink heart patterned dress is pretty much my new favorite wardrobe piece. It has everything I love about dresses, it's frilly, has a pretty lace trim and a bow embellishment. Plus it doesn't hurt that it's the perfect above the knee length and fits like a glove! This dress is also by a small independent brand called Bonne Chance Collections, which I discovered this year on Instagram. As an artist myself, I love buying handmade and indie designs. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into everything as well as the passion for the craft. Both this particular dress and another one I ordered are amazing as far as quality and fit goes especially for the price. The first time I wore this dress the gas station attendant said I looked like strawberry shortcake (that's a compliment in my book ;)) This dress is already sold out on the site but I've linked a similar one below and thee are many other prints in this cut that are available. Seriously thinking how did I live life before owning these dresses?? Definitely buying more! Be sure to follow them on instagram to get sneak peeks of their new collections and coupon codes.

I paired this dress with my favorite Betsey Johnson Popcorn novelty bag because what says carnival outfit better than a popcorn purse? This one is sold out from her website but I'll link one below if I find one for you. I am officially obsessed with novelty purses and I think have about six now. I'll do a collection post soon.

Pink Kawaii Candy Charm Jewelry

I finished off the outfit with hot pink jelly bow wedge shoes from Modcloth and jewelry designed and handmade by me for my brand Fatally Feminine Designs: a gorgeous Pink and Gold Classic Charm necklace featuring tons of pink handmade charms including cotton candy, unicorn, gum ball machine, gummy bear and a macaron. I also wore carnival cotton candy bag earrings in pretty pastel rainbow colors. Both items are available in my shop, full of tons of kawaii, retro, pinup, and kitsch inspired jewelry!

I've been away for too long. It's no secret to my readers that this blog has been pretty neglected over the past year. The last time I wrote here I announced that I would no longer be blogging regularly, but of course I changed my mind recently. I've been in a pretty big creative rut with my business and have been feeling unmotivated and uninspired. 

One way I have always been able to express myself creatively has been fashion. Getting dressed every day is like another chance to start over with a fresh canvas and make a new piece of art different from the last. So I decided since my outfits inspire me, I want to start sharing them with my readers again. 

I can't promise a consistent schedule as I am still running Fatally Feminine Designs full time, but I'm really excited to start blogging again. Don't be shy, pop in and check out my posts and feel free to leave a comment or suggest a topic. 

Now on to the outfit! I started shopping early for summer clothes this year and my first stop was to forever21. I love the selection and of course the prices. I saw a ton of denim on the racks, which seems to be a huge trend going into the Spring and Summer seasons. I am super excited about that because my most recent collection, named Magical Creature features some unicorn inspired embroidered patches and enamel pins. So anything denim is perfect to adorn with flair like that!

One of the denim pieces that instantly caught my eye was this adorable overall dress. I love anything that takes something rugged and adds a feminine silhouette or details. Plus this dress is perfect to layer and embellish with kawaii accessories. I love wearing outfits that are more simple, and then I can turn the volume up with cute jewelry, bags and shoes. 

This outfit is pretty simple but comfortable and cute. I paired the overall dress with a pink cropped tee, cute junk food socks, hologram platforms, a popcorn novelty purse and some accessories from my own collection including my favorite faux candy choker, magical creature unicorn enamel lapel pins, and 14k gold nameplate necklace. I topped it all off with my favorite 90s inspired accessory, a rainbow tattoo choker (like, duh). 

Hope you dolls like this outfit! I'll be posting more soon. Want to buy this look? Check out the details below:

End of Summer | Cats and 90s Vibes

Longgggg time, no post! So I don't have to tell you guys but it's been forever since I posted here. After the last post I did, things just completely took off with Fatally Feminine Designs. Now, most days I work more than 8 hours to finish my orders, manage social media, listing, photographing, customer service, supply sourcing, collaborations with other designers etc. I'm a one woman design machine! It can be tiring, but I can tell you that I have never been happier or felt more blessed in my entire life. It still blows me away that I was able to turn this dream into a reality and a full time job. Every day brings little surprises and challenges and I couldn't ask for more. (A couple of surprise examples: 1. my google+ profile says it's been viewed over 4,500,000 times. Umm what?! 2. A few weeks ago I noticed some new followers on instagram: one of my favorite artists, a cast member of MTV's Girl Code and a couple of previous project runway contestants.... !!insert shocked face!!)

So I decided I am a much better jewelry designer than blogger. I don't have the proper time to make this a real blog that has a schedule. I will just be posting here randomly. I think Macarons and Stilettos will now be my little outlet away from FFD. A place to rant, talk about personal stuff, and post my outfits. And hopefully a place to connect with my favorite blogging friends! I won't be taking any more sponsors, but if you'd like me to add your badge to the right hand column just let me know. The only other sponsors I'll be taking is if you'd like to dress me. I'll take clothes, shoes, and accessories (no jewelry please)! ;P

I wore this outfit on Sunday, one of my last outfits of the Summer and an homage to my inspiration for the newest FFD jewelry collection - the 90s! Hope you enjoyed this outfit, details below>>>

Weekly Instagram Roundup

Shared a photo of the giant pocky I found at my local Asian grocer! YUM

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you had a great week. Once again I failed to blog properly this week, but I guess being exceedingly busy is not always a bad thing and a lot of exciting things are happening for me currently. So I hope to blog more about that soon! I spent most of my week making things and filling orders, which was rewarding but left no time for blogging! :( My posts on Instagram were a little scarce this week too, but here are my favorite highlights from Instagram last week anyway.

Found out my Boba Tea Necklaces were featured on last week! :)

Listed my Macaron Earrings in a rainbow of pretty colors this week.

Finally got to announce the winner of my 2k giveaway. I was surprised I got over 60 entries!

How is your weekend going? Let me know in the comments below! :)

What I Wore: Flower Inspired Spring Outfit

Happy Tuesday everyone! I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for Spring weather. Winter has been nice, but I'm ready for a change and to be able to wear some Spring outfits. So I know I said last week's outfit was one of my favorites, but I have to admit I really love this week's too. This week, I'm teaming up with to put together a Spring outfit inspired by my favorite flower: the rose. 

I took the inspiration pretty literally, choosing this floral print as the focal piece since I am a floral print fanatic. The fact that floral print is a continual Spring trend just gives me more of an excuse to wear it! I also used the inspiration of the beautiful colors of the flower itself: soft and bright pinks and vibrant reds which can be seen in my handbag, shoes, earrings and makeup.

Hope you like this outfit! Are you ready for Spring and warmer weather? Let me know in the comments below!

What I Wore: Skulls Hearts and Unicorns

Skull Sweater Leather Skirt Outfit
Happy Friday everyone! Whew, I don't know about you but this week completely exhausted me! I had a crazy busy week with FFD and I really don't see it slowing down any time soon. This is a completely amazing and good thing but still exhausting. I have a collab with another really great artist/designer coming up soon that I am so excited about. I can't share details yet because I'm really not sure of all the details myself but one thing I do know is that it will be awesome! When she asked me if I would collab with her awhile back, I was so humbled and thrilled because she is someone I admire and respect so much. Wow. 

Anyway, here is an outfit I wore last week. One of my last winter outfits since the weather is starting to warm up here, and I just love it! I paired this fun skull print oversized sweater, with a leather pleated skirt, bright purple tights, and high-heeled loafers. I accessorized with my fav heart shaped bag complete with star and Michael Kors fur bag charm. Plus I had to top if off with some pieces I designed for Fatally Feminine Designs, including a Holographic Unicorn Necklace and Birthday Cake Ring
