Milkshakes At Pop's Diner

alices pig diner-11
I'm big on theme dressing. A lot of my fashion inspiration comes from films, so when I put together outfits I lean towards dressing more like a character in a movie than dressing for real life. Case in point when I received this dress from Alice's Pig I knew I needed to do an old-fashioned diner shoot (despite the fact that old-fashion diners are a rarity in Ireland!) complete with milkshakes. The dress just feels like something someone would wear at a diner in the 1950s with a high ponytail and a slash of cherry red lipstick. We were lucky enough to find one diner (not named Pop's) perfect for the look, complete with jukeboxes on the tables and chrome everything. Everything worked together just how I had imagined it; I feel like this outfit is somewhere between high school cheerleader off-duty and retro waitress! So many of Alice's Pig's designs are a vintage lover's dream, I'm a sucker for their coats in autumn and winter and their dresses are all like this one--retro with unique touches and ethically made to boot! The asymmetrical neckline and contrast stitching on this dress really sets it apart. Throw a basic denim jacket on top, some matching shoes, and a hair bow and you're set! I also wore my white rabbit ring as a nod to the book that inspired the brand's name; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. A pig baby ring might have been a more exact nod to the name, but since a white rabbit began the whole adventure I figured it would do in a pinch.
P.S. Use code "clotheshorse20" to get 20% off at ethical fashion brand Alice's Pig (and this dress is on sale for less than £50!)alices pig diner-23 alices pig diner-8

    1. Thanks! :p I did it to see if Thomas would notice b/c he's so focused on other details when he's taking pics and he totally did not notice until I showed him later.

  4. This set is absolutely enchanting! I’m definitely going to have to check out Alice’s Pig’s clothing. What hair dye are you using currently? It looks fab!

    1. Aw thank you! The key is to go at a really awkward/non-peak time when it's pretty quiet and then ask for the most isolated booth/spot possible! We got lucky on this day as it was full when we arrived, but had mostly cleared by the time our milkshakes arrived. I also always ask permission before we take pictures as well.

  6. Since you point out that this dress was ethically made, I wanted to reiterate that Modcloth is now owned by a subsidiary of Walmart, which is known for its shady and unethical business practices. I don't wish to sound critical or naggy, but since you feature Modcloth somewhat prominently on the blog I thought it was worth mentioning, especially since many people don't know Modcloth was bought out. Love your outfit and this whole shoot!

    1. Walmart definitely engaged in horrible business practices but they have changed their tune around sustainability and workers rights in the last 5 years - they're way better than they were. Totally valid point about Walmart buying Modcloth, I don't know how much emphasis Modcloth places on sustainability.
      Also - agreed that this shoot is great!!
