Cupcake dress

This week I started my PR internship with Holstee, a clothing company that has a nonprofit component. What is so great about Holstee is that they combine functional clothing (think tee with a holster position zipper pocket to stash your credit card, cash and breath mints) with doing good. 10% of revenue goes towards micro-finance lending through KIVA. My role is to help Holstee implement its PR strategy, meanwhile looking for a paid job. Otherwise, on my way home, I stopped by Shareen Vintage and scored this frothy pink frock for $40. It's something Barbie would wear. I look like a cupcake, but I kinda like it. I'm not sure what attracts me to this, but lately I've been attracted to sweetheart necklines and puffy bottoms. I've decided to just take photos of this one dress and changing the accessories to switch up the looks. Which is your favorite look? Feel free to comment!

A bit glam with the suede platforms, slightly edgy with the layered chain and pearl necklaces.
