mediocreprincess asked: So after reblogging so many of your posts and just generally admiring this blog, I figured I should take a moment to tell you that I am completely in love with everything here and hope that you never stop posting. I'm currently a film/animation student, but I considered going into apparel for a long time and this blog is making me wish I did.
thank you so much. and it is never too late to follow your dreeeaaams.

In honor of my recent engagement (!!!!!!) I am posting my all time favorite wedding dress. Maybe I want to be a bridal designer because I can’t wear a dress to my own wedding? hmmm maybe I can just go in drag and wear this.

captain-rachel asked: I found you though FYHMHB and I have to say... wow. I'm normally not the kind of girl who gets that into clothing. (I went about 4 years without wearing or owning a pair of heels, I usually wear blue jeans and a wife-beater) but this... it's just amazing. I'm currently writing a fanfiction where almost every other chapter has the main character dressing up, and I find myself wanting to write a bunch of chapters RIGHT NOW so that I can dress her up in some of these amazing outfits.
Thanks! Share your writing with us when you are done :)
