Recently I received a marvelous surprise in the mail from the lovely and talented Elizabeth Denneau of Candy Strike. Elizabeth sent me a sneak peek of one of the items in her upcoming collection called Beautiful Creatures. If you're not a frequent shopper of Candy Strike let me give you the run down. Elizabeth Denneau is a bad ace artist who has been designing fashion for woman of all shapes and sizes for over a decade. When you creep the Candy Strike website you will find a quote from Elizabeth that says "I believe in fearless fashion, in smirks, in unapologetic displays of style, in happy-sassy girls strutting their stuff causing mischief and fun wherever they go. I believe in being nice, but fierce. I believe in owning your presence though fashion. If you wear my designs you have to own your presence - and baby's it's beautiful." This quote by Denneau is everything to me, and one of the many reasons I shop Candy Strike and will continue to support Elizabeth's indie designs. If you're looking for unique, edgy and fun fashion creep Candy Strike. You will not be let down.
My beautiful Death Moth dress below is a hint of what is to come in the new collection Beautiful Creatures that drops for pre-order on July 1st. Beautiful Creatures is a limited edition collection so make sure you get in on the pre-order if you see any pieces you love. If an item is super popular it may not make its way back on the Candy Strike website for purchase after the pre-order period. I will say, you are going to NEED this super soft and stretchy skater dress to run around town in this summer. I wore my dress for the second time this past weekend to a faery festival with my family and I received lots of compliments; not only does the graphic look amazing, the dress itself is light and cool. I'm wearing a size 3X at a 24/26 and it fits great with lots of room to spare. This dress could easily fit a larger size due to the stretch in the fabric. I should also note the length of the dress; I'm 5'6" tall and this piece is the perfect length on me. I like when a skirt hits me just above me knees and this is exactly where this dress hits on me. I also recently placed an order with Candy Strike for some crop tops and a skater skirt. I can't wait to receive them and share details on those as well with you.
