Roman Candles Exploding Like Spiders

This dress has been languishing in my closet for far too long, but the other day it was briefly freed from those shadowy confines. I recently received a sweet package of gum courtesy of Orbit featuring their new package designs and I am a fan. I actually have been a heavy gum chewer since I worked as a cashier at a convenience store. The packages are really intriguing since their reinvention; more of an extension of your personal style than a package for gum! This cinnamon package reminds me of pop art and the star-like print inspired today’s outfit. I love how the design plays with pink and red, and dimension by layering and playing with the size of each “burst.” When I held the package up to the dress print it definitely seemed like providence, especially considering the dress is named “dynamite” and both pieces seem to offer explosions of red. So there you have it, a lovely cinnamon package inspiring a cheery outfit for a bright spring day.

  16. this has made me miss cinnamon flavoured gum SO much! i loved it whenever i visited america and a few years ago they brought it out here and i was obsessed with it. i must have been the only person buying it though because then they stopped it. so unfair.

  37. The shape of the dress is so cute. And I love the design of the gum package.

  38. I've never been used packaging as inspiration for an outift before. You've done it so well I might just have to give it a burl myself ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hahaha that is amazing. I love how random things just pop in as such good inspiration sometimes. You look gorgeous and all spring-y! Unfortunately it had been raining and freezing cold here in New Zealand. :( I am afraid I'd have to browse your winter looks for inspiration rather than checking your recent updates.

  44. So cute! I've been eyeing this dress for weeks, I'm just waiting until I get my next paycheck before I order one myself :]

  45. I actually have been a heavy gum chewer since I worked as a cashier at a convenience store.
    What a cliche! Haha.

    Anyway I really like the simple way you styled the dress. That's a fun post idea- dresses and candy packages. :)

  46. wow, I love all the red. Red is definitely one of my favourite colours, so this outfit is just amazing in the whole colour sense, and pattern sense. How weird is it that a random dress that you had matches the new Orbit gum pack.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love the dress and how you make red casual by pairing it with brown, instead of black, which would make it more formal. Love, love, love.

  48. love this outfit, and i love jack kerouac terribly.

  56. love the dress! but I also am a little obsessed with that belt. I love how wide and kind of masculine it is against the cuteness of the dress. I think I may have even commented on it another time you wore it, haha.

    I love the dress. For some reason, I'm stuck on the Valentine's day mode thing.

    I've been following the EIU blogs for a long time now and I never created an account. But now I have one, and now I can keep up and follow with your guys' lovely post.

    PS. I love the open setting flicks!

  62. Rebecca, I know that you've kinda been getting some flack about courtesy of items, mainly in regards to recieving Orbit gum, but I just wanted to say that I think it's absolutely amazing how you took something as simple as chewing gum and used that as a starting point for one of your outfits. I would never have thought of it, and I think that's what makes you a great fashion blogger. Keep it up!
