That's my thug face in the last photo, I use it when I want to look menacing. Probably doesn't go so well with ringlets and a babydoll dress, eh? I stalked that dress for weeks online before finally caving in and making it mine. In the end I couldn't resist such a magical combination of navy blue, velvet and stripes. And 'tis the season for tent-shaped dresses, after all... I've got a lot of holiday eatin' to do and I certainly don't need a damn wiggle dress getting in my way. Bring on the shapeless tents!
