Yesterday, I decided to buy myself a gift. I recieved a letter from the university on Friday to tell me that I have passed all of my classes and I will be graduating next year. I wanted to celebrate, but I couldn’t figure out an appropriate way to mark the occasion. Then, during a shopping expedition yesterday, I spotted just the thing. There’s a particular garment that I have wanted for a very long time. It’s something that I know I would wear a lot, and which would be loads of fun to wear, but tends to be quite expensive. Yesterday, I saw this dream garment on sale, and I knew that it was meant to be. I decided to reward myself for six years of hard study by buying a frilly, frothy, flouncing crinoline petticoat.
I am wearing:
– Polka dot blouse from Target
– Pink beaded skirt (thrifted)
– Gold Rubi heels (gifted)
– Amethyst ring
– Rose ring from Beauty and Luck
– Crinoline petticoat from Vicious Venus.
I love the volume this petticoat gives to my skirts. It’s so much fun to wear. It swings and swoops as you walk, and makes the most satisfying rustling noise.

I chose a short-length petticoat, because I thought that I would get a lot more wear out of it. THe longer ones are lovely, but I don’t own many skirts that would go with them. I already have at least six skirts and dresses that will go with this short one. They had a red and a purple petticoat as well, but in the end, I chose white, because I thought it would be a bit more versatile. If I was going to splash out on something so extravagant, I wanted to be able to wear it with everything.
It’s also ideal for twirling!
