Oversized Toddlers & Tiaras

As some of you may know, I was nominated for Pedestrian.TV Blogster of the Year Awards. I was actually super surprised and flattered to be one of twenty fashion finalists as there were over 3000 blogs submitted. The competition was fierce, with many great blogs in the running and I'd like to congratulate every single one of them as they all deserved to win in their own right. Sadly I didn't take out the victory, however the lovely girls at Sargasso Sea did. I was ecstatic for them because their blog is amazing and they are the most fabulous girls, so check them out!

But unfortunately everyone knows there's no fun in losing, so I decided to award myself a crown because as my second grade teacher always told me, "everyone is a winner". And really, any reason to flaunt a diamante-encrusted tiara is a good enough for me. 

When I saw this American Retro shirt with its awesome psychedelic print, it instantly caught my attention and I knew I had to wear it. And where better than the award night? This particular print reminds me of a mash-up of trippy hippies, Pacman and general awesomeness. Wearing it honestly made me feel like I was dancing in my own groovy music video clip that night, kinda like the segue scenes from That 70s ShowPeople also seemed to love my necklace, commenting on how well it complemented the shirt. It actually hangs halfway down the chest and it took some effort to customise the length for it to sit underneath my collar. 

For this very special event I thought I would also bring along my boyfriend for moral and physical support. Isn't he a stunner? The strong and silent type, with a six pack of abs and broad shoulders for me to cry on when I didn't win. Basically perfection... disregarding his missing limbs and head. Oh and let's not talk about the Ken doll situation going on in his groin area. It doesn't matter because we're in love.

The peekaboo cuts in Lola's Just Cavali dress are a little risque, but the cuts in her hair aren't. She was deeply saddened by the fact that I no longer wanted to be mistaken as her sibling so in a last ditch attempt to steal my thunder, she trimmed her long luscious fringe so that we could look related once more. Just one of her many psychopathic tendencies I guess.

Too bad she wasn't hardcore enough to buzz her sides as skin-short as I did. But if we get enough messages from you guys saying how much of a sick bitch she would look with side shaves, I'm sure she would reconsider. Or I'll just do it while she is asleep...
