Arcade Fire

Mall arcades can be a surprisingly depressing place as an adult. Behind their flashing lights you note the beat-up carpet and the very minimal rewards for your gaming efforts in the depressing collection of prizes. Still, I've a soft spot for the games--eradicating the world of aliens seems like a few coins well spent. I never really played any of these games as a child so it's pretty much my first time whenever I do fool around in these little arcades in a mall or before a movie. This visit was a pleasant escape from a dreary day and a nice change from my usual outdoor settings for my outfit pictures. There were a couple of children running around with arms flailing; proof that the magic of arcades isn't gone for everyone...

I used to love those places, but when I got older I hated when my brother wanted to go to the arcade after a movie.

Love your dress and cardigan, they fit so well with the colors of the arcades! Here in Barcelona there are very few arcades left, but when I was a kid I also enjoyed them a lot :)

I think the magic of arcades are never lost, they live on. Btw, your dress matches the settings and I love it~

There is something magical and nostalgic about arcades - although I didn't play any of those games as a kid either (I was always a PC game girl).

I'm loving your dress. <3

Such a cool background for the pictures. I love that dress so much--I found some really awesome galaxy fabric and I'm going to sew a sundress out of it this summer!
