plum tinkerbell

tiered dress with embroidered hem – thrifted | black wedges – shoe etiquette | faux snake skin belt – bangkok find | diamond-shaped fringe necklace – downtown find | bangles – gifted | work watch – gifted

“you look like tinkerbell…” that’s what everybody told me when i wore this outfit to work. of course, all i can do is smile because there’s nothing else to do. i don’t know if they say i look like tinkerbell because it’s so juvenile or that i look like tinkerbell because it’s pretty. maybe both for some. LOL.

i got this dress from one of the spur-of-the-moment thrifting trips my mom and i made a couple of months ago — which my mom and i had more frequently before she left for Aussie and where my dad so happily obliged to drive us wherever we wanted to go. i love going thrifting with my mom. she’s been at it for so many years, she knows what to look for and definitely knows whether a stain can be removed or not. sooner or later though, it seems she has evolved to wearing my style or i hers. on casual days, she wears loose tops with a long cardigan and skinny jeans. sometimes you can’t tell us apart — except that she’s really fair and i’m not.

    Pretty sure they said you look like Tinkerbell because it's pretty, because that's actually what I thought when I saw that dress! 🙂

    What a great thrifting find! I have to say, plum is definitely a gorgeous color on you. I don't really think of Tinkerbell when I look at this outfit but it's definitely pretty. That's adorable that you and your mom will be influenced by each other's style! My mom's not much of a shopper. 😛

I'm excited that I'm back–though with a different passion. 🙂 When I read your post, I was like “this is funny! she's talking about tink!” and I was talking about peter in my last post. 🙂 awww, you do look whimsical and stylish. way better than tink of course! 🙂
