OOTD :: of Celebrity Day and inanimate stars




Did you really think I would’ve passed this up?

I mean, c’mon! It’s TARDIS Tuesday and Celebrity Day? What bigger celebrity could there possibly be than the Time And Relative Dimension In Space herself?!

Sure, I could’ve dressed up as one of the incarnations of the Doctor, but been there done that, and quite recently too, as a matter of fact. Plus, I really needed an excuse to wear my new TARDIS dress. I’m particularly proud of it because I managed to score the non-bodycon version which I’ve discovered is exceedingly rare (most iterations out there are painfully body-hugging and definitely age inappropriate).

It was actually the last one for sale at the time and I had to get a size larger than normal which ended up working out alright in the end because the excess fabric and roominess allowed me to do the whole button-up-shirt-under-dress thing. (Hey, would this count as short over long?)

I do feel a bit Alice in Wonderland-y with the white shirt, but I’m hoping donning the tie helps inject a bit of the masculine into the ensemble. I also opted for my galaxy wanna-be Chucks over booties to maintain the cheeky playfulness of it all.

Some will call this a stretch and cry foul if I’m counted for the day (we get participation points and the class that gets the most points wins a pizza party at the end), but I’m going to insist. I think this shows a helluva lot more effort and thought than simply throwing on a pair of sunnies and pretending to be a generic celebrity incognito, don’t you?

    I had not seen this one! How great! I’ve never seen the non body hugging one either. This is fantastic!

    Thank you so much for linking with Très Chic Style Bits

      Thank you for hosting it! I hope you check out my own monthly link up to launch this month (see my T3 link at the top of the page).

      And yes, this dress was a find. I LOVE it.

  3. Just made my freaking day, that’s all. All the screaming and giggling from the living room made Dan come running in to see if I was okay. He didn’t think it as wonderful as I did, but he thought it pretty cool, just the same.
    Thank you. Really.

      And if Greg wasn’t dead asleep next to me right now, I’d be giggling and screaming too after reading your comment. It’s always a thrill to be able to elicit such an awesome response from a fellow Whovian, husbands/significant others notwithstanding. ;p

    The dress is amazing! I wish I watched Dr. Who just so I could make some appropriate remarks, but the only doc I’m interested in right now is Marten.

    It’s such a cute dress, and you look ecstatic wearing it. And yes, the tie really mans it up a lot. ;~)

    • mtsedwards says:

      I’m gonna convert you yet, Val. Doctor Who is uh-mazing! Brilliant even! But yeah, I was ecstatic all day. My school is such the haven for outcasts and geeks that EVERYONE commented on my TARDIS dress.

      Oh, and I think we both oughtta just buy our Docs, eh? ;p

    Oh my… Gooosh! How super awesome is that!?! I was thinking ‘she has to win a prize for that’ before I read about the pizza party lol.

    • mtsedwards says:

      I am only one woman, Dolly! The rest of my class has to participate too or no pizza party for us. Then again, as I mentioned to Val, I was plenty happy in this dress and that’s really all the prize I could want.

  6. It’s PERFECT! I think the TARDIS totally qualifies as a celebrity. She’s much more recognizable to non-fans than many of the Doctor’s regenerations are.

    • mtsedwards says:

      Ya think? And in the grand scheme of geekery, I am just a modest pseudo cosplayer. I’d been eyeing all the handmade TARDIS dresses on Pinterest and sadly wiping drool off my chin.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
