Outfit of the Week: Sally Sailor





Sally Sailor learned how to swim without water wings. She sails around on her little boat named the Anastasia, going from port to port along the coast, selling trinkets from her boat. Thin, ghost lace dresses; delicate pearl necklaces that look like they will melt in your hand; old doo-wop records with snappy-finger rhythms; spices said to conjure love and curse enemies. She trades stories of her pirate father for wine and bread. She laughs and smiles and waves frantically as her boat pulls from the harbor, and she promises she will return soon!

I have always had such a thing for sailor dresses, I think it started with my childhood obsession with Sailor Moon!

I love the cute little tie <3
