Now where have I seen that beret before...


Awesome concept. I really want a uniform dress of my own, now.

My friend told me about your blog. I know Beacon's Closet well, also! My blog is called www.yearwithoutshopping.com,--no shopping for clothes, shoes, or handbags for a year, and kind of for a similar purpose. I also write about consumerism, current events and books. I'm not the model you are, though, and I haven't put up photos of me yet! Great idea!

Valencia tagged this Cute

The hat looks really weird, probably because it's dark and so is your hair. Gives it a weird silhouette. Really cute otherwise


This is a favorite of mine so far. And that says something, because I've loved them all.

Jem tagged this Cute

This is incredibly cute, I love your use of tights and socks.

Anonymous tagged this Cute

adorable! Have you considered selling the dress on your site with a % going towards your charity? I'm sure there are plenty of readers who buy it!

Janine tagged this Cute

Love the expression that goes with it. Priceless and practiced for a good reason!

Sarah tagged this Cute

Personally, I would have gone for a cute pair of Mary Janes to really top off that "school girl" look - but this is so cute!

Anon tagged this Try Harder

That doily.... ew.

Sara tagged this Cute

Reminds me of Wednesday Addams only not in a morbid way. Very cute. I wouldn't normally care much for the shoes, but they work somehow. Great pairing.
