I got this dress from a vintage shop a long time ago, it was a complete bargain, but never wore it because I wanted to add lace trim and black ribbon to it. I don't feel that cream suits my complexion very well; because I have a yellow undertone to my skin. I hoped that the black border would prevent this effect; I'm not sure how well it worked though! I hand stitched all the trim, which was a mistake because the skirt needed 7m of lace! It doesn't look big enough to have edges that long!
The dress made me want to run around the park and frolic in a meadow, so here I am!
Vintage Dress: Well actually it was originally a theatrical costume so I have no idea how old it is; 10 quid in Top Banana (my local vintage shop)
Cape: Phaze. I got it in a tattoo parlour/alternative store when I was on Holiday in Weymouth 2007. I think it was 20 quid.
Victorian boots: Schuh many years ago. They are the most expensive shoes I own, but also the best 80 quid I ever spent.
Parasol: Vintage. 17th birthday present from my mum.
I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog for the rest of this week; I've got some big deadlines with my uni work. So if you don't hear from me it's because I'm up to my eyeballs in books about dead things again!
