Tales of the Unicorn Queen

One of my favorite photoshoots, this was shot in mere 10 minutes. Mark rocks!

I got that dress during my trip to Forever 21 in Times Square. I wore it briefly on a cruise but wasn’t really happy with that outfit. When a package arrived from France full of lovely accessories courtesy of Clara Cherie, I was inspired to dress it up!

You know what else I’m into? Quirky vintage hats, have been for a while. They just don’t make them like they used to! I adore this white number with a flower and a net, so elegant yet quaint! I scored a couple vintage hats during my trip to California, Mark’s aunt is big on antiquing and let me keep a few – so nice of her! Expect more oddball head accessories from me this fall. ;)

Deerlings, do you like hats? What is your favorite style? My absolute favorite must be a beret – ultra-stylish, although can be quite demanding!

    Everything about this is wonderful! I love your eyebrows. They are gorgeous. What’s your eyebrow routine?

    Doe Deere Reply:

    I try not to over-pluck them (they can always be covered up for a thinner line) and pencil them in. Lately I’ve been combining pencil + brow cake.

  • Elfy says:

    Umm I think they are by Elite?

    Oh… I love this shoe, I need this shoe, I want it so badly!!! And it’s out…
    Yes, I like hats. All kind of hats. Yours is lovely!

    Oh noes! Maybe they’ll bring them back, it’s a great shoe.

  • alexis says:

    very cute! I love the pink accents. I wish I had the same creativity to do up an outfit like you!

  • Cate says:

    I love your outfit, I adore berets to I don’t wear hats nearly as much as I should xoxo

  • valtornia says:

    My favorite make up ever ! You look really GEORGEOUS ! <3
    I Love the hat. I collect vintage hats too.

    Vintage hats are the BEST! :D

  • CindyRex says:

    I adore your makeup in this one. Your eyebrows are phenomenal! I would love if you did something just about eyebrows. Mine are the weak point in my makeup routine.

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Maybe I’ll do a video tutorial about eyebrows. :)

  • Kristabelle says:

    Love it! Your hair looks super cute like that, the eye makeup is gorgeous (and the lashes!), and the outfit is perfect.

    I’m not a big hat person, probably cuz I have a small head.

  • Charlotte says:

    Wonderful! Your creativity in style – makeup, clothes, acessories – just amazing!

    Like others before me, I would also love for something about eyebrows.

    You are an inspiration.

    About hats, love them. I think that is something I inherited from my grandma. She had a thing for hats, and she would crochet her own, in bright colors! My father says she was always recognizable from afar because of that.
    I would simply love to own a cloche, such a beautiful piece..

  • rachael says:

    You. Are. Fantastic. I love this shoot. Your skin is utterly flawless and your facial expressions are candid. You are a true beauty.


  • Eden S. says:

    I adore vintage hats! But they tend to look rather awkward on me (all hats in general do, really).

    But I adore bowler hats<3

  • Ollie says:

    I love baseball caps, I never leave the house without one
    but I’ve been thinking about pill box hats. Nets, sequins, feathers. Never something I’d dare wear shut indoors though.

    that necklace sure looks like octopus parlour

    Kellee Reply:

    pillbox hats are love!<3

    I’m having a Dita von Teese moment;)

  • Beth says:

    I’m with you on the berets! I just made my first of the season in a slouchy cable style in teal – my fave colour! I like to accessorise them with clashing necklaces, scoop neck tees and fingerless mitts. :)

  • Kellee says:

    Ah!<3 LOVELOVELOVE! You are so cute! The hat is amazing and your makeup looks fab!

    I absolutely love hats! I don't think I have a favorite though. I like fedoras and berets and big floppy straw hats and cowboy hats and cute knit hats and top hats and- ..well.. lots of hats. :D I need more hats. Can't wait to see your pretty little head all decked out in awesome headwear! :D

  • Kat V says:

    LOVE <3<3

  • Becca says:

    Hey Doe!! This is so so pretty, I love your hair wavy and short like this. Do you use rollers or tongs to style it?? Becca xxx

  • Maggie says:

    cute surprised look at the end! ;)

  • Natasha says:

    I have a beret, western hat, a bowler, top hat, newsboy cap, fedoras, beanies, etc. I love unusual hats!
    Curious: What eyebrow pencil are you wearing? I’ve been using a very odd shade of eyeshadow, because I can’t seem to find a pencil tat fits red hair.

    Doe Deere Reply:

    I’m wearing a greenish-brown pencil that I normally use + some medium brown eyeshadow on top. I always recommend gray/brown tones for redheads, much more flattering than oranges and reds.

  • Ally says:

    I love bubble-hems and your eyelashes are gorgeous!

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Mark actually hates bubble skirts! I’ll admit, not the most flattering cut on me (or anyone, really)… But this one kinda works!

  • cute look!!!

    Loved the Shoe and the dress =)
    I love this green/blue color!

  • Brittany S says:

    Adorable Doe^_^ I really like your rose necklace (or collar?)The lashes are lovely and your hat is cute! I love hats, hats and scarves baby thats me;) I really want a vintage men’s hat because I’m really into the menswear or wemenswear look for the fall.

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Androgyny is hot! Nothing like a good fedora ;)

  • Natalie says:

    This is so gorgeous! I can’t believe the shoot only took 10 minutes!
    My favorite hat right now is the men’s black straw fedora that I got in L.A.

  • Kristy says:

    Wow beautiful! I especially love the last photo with the innocent shocked face. Adorable! I do love hats, but havn’t really experimented with them much. You have inspired me!

  • Crystal says:

    This dress was on sale on the Forever 21 website—I wanted to get it but it sold out. :( You styled it very nicely.

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Oh, bummer. :(

  • Lux says:

    Ermine moth eyelashes! :)

    Doe Deere Reply:

    HAHA, YES!

  • Leslie says:

    Love the entire look, but the hat is the show stopper. I’m a hat girl myself! I just bought a new Eugenia Kim that has the 1920s look! I want to see Doe as a flapper full out!

    Doe Deere Reply:

    I’ll be frank, I have yet to master the full-flapper look. Every time I’ve tried it in the past, it looked awful on me (the makeup, the dresses). One day!

  • chanel says:

    I think your dress is a little too short, and it makes your proportions look funny, but I love the whole look, especially your lips/gloss and your hair! (: The look reminds me a little of Bree from Desperate Housewives heehee.

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Bree van der Kamp is my favorite character from that show! :)))

  • Padmita says:

    I love the shots, beautiful lighting! I also adore the hat, it’s really cute with the little veil, and small enough not to look overdone. I love hats, but I rarely find ones I would really wear everyday. But I’d totally wear this one (:

  • Morgiss says:

    It´s absolutely perfect outfit! The most beutiful is your rose ring ;o)

  • Katya says:

    Beautiful and subtle make up, Doe. And I love how in the first photo it looks as though all the flowers were a part of your hat. :)))

    Hats – I’m a great fan of Humphrey-Bogart-style hats and French berets. So much chic with so little effort!

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Agreed about berets – I like to wear mine lopsided, slightly covering one ear. And lipstick, red lipstick!

  • Jenny says:

    Wow, this look is super-cute! I haven’t been wearing many hats lately; personally, I prefer parasols. :)

  • muffingal says:

    Berets are my absolute favorite. I want to get a navy blue or dark green one to go with my black hair.

  • Kristina says:

    i love hats….i collect them. i’m not sure if i have a favorite one. i really like boyish-looking hats.

    p.s. i really liked these photos and colors incorporated into them. also, i love the makeup. possible future tutorial?

  • ihopeyouareok says:

    I love vintage hats, and have over 100 of them. I wear them whenever I leave the house, unless I have a special headpiece on instead. If there are auctions near where you live, they are a great place to get amazing hats.

    Doe Deere Reply:

    Estate sales are also amazing for vintage finds, I hear. :)

  • Gabriella says:

    I love this outfit…absolutely lovely! I love your makeup too!

  • Comtesse De Barbarac says:

    I actually ADORE hats like the one you have on: very 30s, shallow crown with a relatively wide brim, and a decent amount of netting. Berets don’t tickle my fancy quite as much, unless I could wear them a la Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes:

  • Amber says:

    A cloche is most certainly my staple.
    Especially for bad hair days.

  • Adrianna Papillon says:

    Oh, gosh, I am the hat QUEEN; I wear them all the time. I love newsboy caps, and have a jillion different colors. I also have two mini tophats (one of which I made!), a bowler, an Indiana Jones fedora and an adorable mint green and pink baseball cap with my university’s logo.

  • Chickything says:

    the last photo— classic.

  • Kelly says:

    I meant to ask this before, but never did! What lip color are you wearing here? I am in love with it- it looks perfect on you!!

  • Dulcey says:

    Turbans!!! They’re more versatile than you think, you know. ;)
