Dresses and Skirts

Two things ThinkGeek. First off, make this Twinkling Stars Skirt in plus sizes. Second—make it in shorts because I’m very jealous right now.

We guarantee this skirt will put a twinkle in your step. Equipped with over 250 tiny LEDs, this midi-length skirt flatters many body types. You can set the lights to off (or wear it without the battery pack), and you’ll have a stellar ombre skirt featuring an actual star chart sure to spark conversation. But the real magic happens when you set the lights to On or Twinkle. Over 45 feet of LED wire lights sparkle inside the layers, looking like little fairy lights shining through the fabric.

Anovos has expanded beyond their line of ridiculously accurate costumes and props by teaming up with Gold Bubble Clothing on a new Star Trek fashion dress line. You can get dresses in A-Line, asymmetrical, bodycon, and classic sleeveless styles in four awesome designs.

I like the variety in both cut and style in the initial release and I appreciate that they’ve included pictures with both regular and plus-sized models. Take a closer look at the designs below. [click to continue…]

dip dye top

If you’re looking for a way to make your wedding dress both unique and beautiful, what about dip dyeing it? It’s a way to do something dramatic without spending a ton of money for a custom dress. Plus, it looks really cool.

UPDATE: It has come to our attention that this particular example was airbrushed, not dip dyed. Either way, it probably isn’t a good idea to alter your expensive dress unless you know what you’re doing. Check out some additional pics below along with a link to a tutorial on the dip dyeing process. [click to continue…]

hubble dress

Redditor Andromeda321 is an astronomer. Here we see her sporting a dress with the Hubble Deep Field on it. Could there be a more perfect dress for someone in her profession? I think not. However, she notes that she rarely wears it because she views it as “kinda cliche for an astronomer to wear”.

what, What, WHAT? If I was an astronomer you had better believe my entire wardrobe would be space-themed. She earned this style.

It appears that the version she is wearing came from Macy’s, but is no longer being sold. But, we did find a very similar version on Redbubble if you’re interested in owning it yourself.
