So Sleek, So Chic Dress, by ModCloth.

A (unintentional) Nightwing-inspired peplum cocktail dress? Get out of my dreams get into my Nightbird.

Unfortunately, this dress is no longer available on ModCloth*. However, this serves as a great example of how to rework a stellar costume design into a chic, ready-to-wear ensemble.

Running Through the Roses Tights, by Look From London, $32.99 [via ModCloth]

Now that it’s finally cooling down to tights weather*, consider channeling Poison Ivy’s botanical bodaciousness with these beautiful floral tights for both everyday wear and for general environmental villainy.

*Just kidding - everyday is tights weather on FTFCS.

Sew It Like You Mean It Dress, $164.99, Modcloth.

This cheerful Spring dress features a few of my favorite things: comic strip prints, sewing, and a beautiful silhouette with a full, A-line skirt. Since this dress is currently out of stock, I’m crossing my fingers that this print pops up in some other incarnation on Modcloth.

Thanks in advance ♥

JUST SIGNAL-BOOSTIN’ MYSELF.

You’re My Heroine ring, $17.99, Modcloth.

Hit ‘em up with style with this ring from Modcloth! This bold, chunky ring is an affordable alternative to the Ambush POW! rings featured in my last installment of Super Style.

"There’s no need to fear when you’ve got superhero chic on hand! Slip on this heavy-hitting ring whenever your wardrobe needs a little punch - the red, comic book print, “POW!” and explosive, black band save your style from an onslaught of average accessories. This ring transforms a mild-mannered button down, chambray shorts, and wayfarer frames into a look fit for an undercover heroine. Don this daring ring, and win the fight against boring bling!" - Modcloth

Power Boot, by Melody Ehsani, $83.99 (via modcloth)
The colorway and detailing of these gorgeous purple wedge boots kind of remind me of a more stylish/wearable variant of the boots that Helena Wayne (Huntress of Earth-2) wore.

Thanks for the link, Jessi :D
