Styling Shark Week

Today marks the start of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. If you're not familiar with this televised event, basically it's a whole week of shark related documentaries and films. Really cool stuff, actually.

Pirate and Sailor, of course. So if you're game, this is the perfect week to rock your favorite pirate hat or sailor style collar.

  4. Nice post! I'm not so much into sharks, but I love pirate and sailor lolita and sharks are a great add to both styles!
