OOTD – Wondercon 2011

Posted on

Wooooooooooooooooooondercon!!!

Believe it or not this was my first time attending! I don’t know how I’ve never been, I’ve been to APE!  Anyhow, it was ****magical**** I just wish that I had more time there! If I go again next year I will for sure get there earlier or stay later.

Anyhow, here’s what I wore!

 

 

oooooh wannabe model pose!

 

 

Also, what you can’t see from the pics are these awesome earrings I got from Domino Dollhouse!

Which by some magical coincidence match the buttons on the dress perfectly! And both items just happened to arrive the day before the Con!

<3<3<3

ok, so

Dress: Forever21+ Dotted Button Front Dress size 3x

Bolero: B & lu size 2

leggings: Forever21+ size 2x

Earrings: Domino Dollhouse Bolt of Bright earrings in blue

(also available in hot pink!!)

Necklace: Domino Dollhouse Rococo Dots Necklace and Earring Set

Ok so let me talk a bit about the details, in case you are interested.  The Dots dress states it is “button front” but they are actually just for decoration, which is a relief to me, as a button up front of anything is usually a dealbreaker for me.  I have problems with the peek-a-boo sides, buttons popping open, popping off, etc.

Also, the dress has a nice rubberized liner at the very top of the dress, to help keep it up. The top is also elasticized. In the pics I am wearing a bra with the dress which I am covering up with the bolero 😛  However when I first got it the day before I just threw it on, no bra, no sweater and took the dog for a walk.  I felt totally supported, plus it is lined so I wasn’t too worried about my nipples poking anybody’s eye out.  I just threw the dress on, and it wasn’t until my arm was getting irritated that I realized it has a zipper on the side!  So the zipper was going down, and it kind of bummed me out… but then I realized that at the top of the zip is a hook and eye, to keep it closed, nice!

And the BESTEST thing about this dress???? POCKETS!!!!  seriously, they were total lifesaver at Wondercon.

The earrings I totally love, I mean what’s not to love?

The necklace…. I ADORE the necklace, here is a closeup (that I featured in an earlier post)

It’s like absolutely perfectly my style.  Only problem I have is with the earrings.  When I opened the package, the bottom of one of the hearts was already chipped! But I love the necklace and plan to wear it a ton, so I don’t want to return it.  I’m sure if I wanted to they’d be dolls about it.  So far I’ve returned 2 things to them and they were quick and really nice about it.

Oh, also! May I share a LOVELY piece of artwork I picked up?

 

hawt dog

 

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just can’t stop loving it. It’s too good. The drama! The passion!! The mustard!!!

So the artist’s name is Joshua Ellingson and he has a website!

I passed up the chance to buy a print of a fat Wonder Woman and I can’t stop beating myself up about it ):  You can see a her on his website though.  Apparently it was made for a Fat WonderWoman project that I was totally unaware of until now! Well, I had seen one of the pics on Tumblr but that was it.

I also bought another print of his, but have no pic of it, it’s the Dia de los Muertos sugar skull one. yay!

Did anybody else go to WonderCon?? Share!
