Baby I'm A Star

I'm a sucker for star prints; I think it is because they seem less cloying and feminine than florals or heart prints. Which is not to say I don't occasionally give in to the appeal of a flower print, it just means in the hierarchy of my heart: the star print reigns supreme. All this made the Baby I'm A Star dress from Family Affairs too perfect to pass up. This dress is part of my "less is more" move towards buying higher quality, special pieces. I'm still not going to be stocking my wardrobe with Chloe and Miu Miu anytime soon, but I think I can afford to buy one independent designer item every so often...especially if I wait for the sales!

  3. Great dress! Great photo shoot too. This kind of reminds me of a modern day version Wyeth's Christina's World (minus the creepy house in the background and pink dress). Great photos :)

  7. I hear what you're saying about investing in more quality pieces. (I feel I've reached that point in my life as well!) I would've guessed this to fall into that category, based on the lovely details like buttons on the sleeves and the back, puffed sleeves, etc.

    Beautiful!

  11. mmmmkay, so I don't know whether I should hug you or kick you for introducing me to Family Affairs. LIKE I even need that plaid jumpsuit from last Spring, but like I don't.

  12. I love things that button up at the back in theory, but they're soooo annoying after a while :(
    It looks gorgeous though

  14. The button details, the point collar! So many lovely details on this dress, without even focusing on the stars...

  15. loving it!!!!take care my lovely friend!!

  16. That dress is too cute. I love the collar and how it fastens at the back. Also, I am really enjoying your gifs. I have been playing around with GIMP for awhile so I think, when I have the time, I am going to try and make one myself!

  21. It looks especially lovely with the white slip (it comes with black right?). I love how you can wear these super appealing prints (also thinking of the Ice Cream dress from ModCloth) without seeming kitschy. In fact, making them classy! I haven't been able to find that balance yet myself and so I struggle to find equilibrium between my love of horse prints and hello kitty and my soft-sighing adoration of lady-like delicacy and savoir faire.

  22. so lovely! Perfect everyday dress.

  23. I absolutly adore this post! It persuaded me to get my starry dress out of my wardrobe and wear it. Thankyou. I have written about it on my blog- http://fashionteapot.blogspot.com/2010/04/everyone-is-star.html

  24. Oh my, that dress is so perfect on you, worth every penny in my opinion. I love the cut, collar and button details. Beautiful!

  25. wow, what a beautiful dress! looks like the fabric is lovely and flowy as well. look at all those freaking buttons! GORGEOUS.

    and that fascinator! LUST!

  29. ooh i love this!!
    the modern print of the dress and such a juxtaposition with the vintage-y sleeves and style.
    and i love the way you've styled it.

  30. oh yes, the dress is truly magical on you Rebecca! lots of special details and beautiful accessory's. I love the Family Affairs collection..

  31. Gorgeous dress!
    I like your "less is more" philosophy. Sample sales of local independent designers are my new strategy to score beautiful pieces for half of the price. Vancouver seems to have a lot going on all the time!

  34. I love the material that the dress is made out of, very flowy! I'm not big on star prints myself, but rather big abstract ones.

    Lovely outfit. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Very cute. I tend to go for more low quality stuff i realize but I do enjoy splurging every once in a while.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Less is more is definitely a mantra worth having! I'd love to see some of your pieces show up in various outfits like they did on your blog in remixes, or when you were away in Greece and such. It's nice to see the many different things you can do with one item.

  38. I don't think I can pull off wearing stars; although, they are my favorite shape! I agree that flowers seem more feminine, but they can seem more mature than stars. I already look like a kid, so I guess that's why I've unconsciously avoided them! lol. The dress looks great on you, though!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this dress.
    For a moment, i thought its a sleeveless dress but as i scrolled down to look at the other pictures, and realised tt its a long sleeve dress, whats more with padded shoulders, I immediately fell in love with it.

  40. beautiful dress, you wear it well.

  41. Truly pretty dress -- it's delicate and tough at the same time.

  42. I love the last photo of you and your dress flowing in the wind.

  43. I too have been obsessing over star prints lately, just this past week I bought two star printed blouses while thrifting. This dress is fabulous, I love all of the attention to detail with the buttons and tiny puff sleeve.

  44. Cute dress & I'm loving the shoulders!

  45. I know what you mean. Stocking one or two designer pieces occasionally isn't so bad--ESPECIALLY on sale prices!

    And this dress is too adorable. You're right the stars, while still being feminine, are not outrightly so like florals or hearts.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The dress represents you truly. Just the perfect blend of whimsy and sophistication.

  47. i think i'd love star prints more if they didnt remind me so much of high school -- our mascot was the stars!

  49. That's a really great dress! It looks great on you!

  50. Hm, fun fact that you like stars more than florals! What a sweet name the dress has as well. The stars kinda/sorta remind me of a post I did about Starry Night:

  51. I am loving all of your "less is more" purchases. This dress is lovely, especially the collar and button details.

  52. I love the star print. I like the nice sharp lines of the stars. They add a crispness to the flowy dress.

  56. Such an adorable dress! The details are fantastic -- the drop-waist, the collar, the buttons. Ahh. <3 love your fascinator too!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Auuugggghhhh gorgeous! And it fits you so well too! Agreed on the star prints, stars are cute but not so in-your-face girly as florals and hearts

    ReplyDelete
  58. wow! I love this dress..I have a love for star prints too! All the detail on this dress is just so perfect too. You inspire me so much lady <3

    ReplyDelete
  59. Your dress is adorable, and I love all the buttons! I'm also considering the "less is more" approach, but it's extremely difficult to cut back when you make visits to H&M and Forever 21. Hope this plan works for you!

    Also - great hat!!

  60. This dress looks perfect on you, you know.

    The title reminds me of a song of mine by my favourite pop band from Japan, The Brilliant Green (which I know you can probably appreciate): "Baby I'm Gonna Be a Star" from the song "Moldy Hole!" (Link: http://www.lyricstime.com/the-brilliant-green-moldy-hole-lyrics.html)

    I love everything about this entire ensemble. It's a wonderfully cut dress, with a great print.

    You're such a dressing inspiration. If only I had enough money to expand my wardrobe. I hate being poor and petite.

  63. That dress looks wonderful on you!
    I'm really picky about star prints (in fear of looking like a scene kid). It has to be a grown-up and/or classic star pattern. The chiffon and sharp collar balance out the fun print!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I really love your outfit. It looks fantastic on you! i really like the style of the dress and the stars look so cute

  65. It's perfection! I definitely second your opinion on the star print - girly, without being too saccharine, and quirky without being too juvenile. And the length is ideal. As a fellow shorter girl, I appreciate the higher hemline that modern dresses more often have. Do the vintage pieces you find usually have a satisfactory length? The ones I acquire are so often a terribly awkward mid-calf length. Oh, the woes of being "pocket-sized"...

  66. star print. long sleeves, drop waist, peter pan collar, buttons up the back and sleeves. You may have just snagged my dream dress! I'd be more offended if it didn't look so cute on you.
