Their Lips Brushed Like Young Wild Flowers In The Wind…

A new dress. Is there anything more frivolous and wonderful as a new dress?
 
I recently went to London with my younger sister for a day of spending, eating and catching up (with a few musical numbers thrown in for good measure!)
Upon arriving to the famously busy Oxford Circus, my single goal in the (so-vast-it-appears-never-ending) Topshop was to find myself a bikini. I’d seen some lovely ones online, but knew I needed to try them on for a good fit.
 
Perhaps more on the bikini another day (I found one and it’s perfect!) because just as I was making my way to pay, I spotted this gorgeous little white number hanging on the sale rail.
I literally could not believe it was in my size…and in the sale!
 
 
Of course I’d seen this beautiful little Victoriana dress when it appeared full price on the website, and had even bid on a couple on eBay (before the price soared beyond logical reason)
So I can truly say it was pure delight to pick one up to take home with me!
 
It’s just the right amount of feminine, and reminds me of ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’, Kate Bush in her floatier incarnations, Stevie Nicks and Beatrix Potter all rolled in to one!
 
 
The necklaces I’m wearing it with feature charms which belonged to my late Nanna and Great-Grandmother. A lot of religious symbolism going on there! I love their character, uniqueness and sentimental value.
My lipstick is by Topshop (Infared) and my nail polish, (which is also on my toes) is a deep Jade green by Rimmel (Block Your Green)
 
 
My head dress is a vintage 1950’s bridesmaids hair band. Made from aged silk, it’s a gorgeous piece which I try not to wear too often for fear of destroying it! It was definitely made for a child as I have to balance on my head in a very particular way to make it stay!
 
I suppose it would also be worth acknowledging at this point that I dyed my hair this week! I wanted a change, and this deep chocolatey brown certainly provided one!
 
 
Checking to make sure Joshua wasn’t about to get mowed down by a lorry as he took my photos!
 
 
Also worth a mention are my new shoes found in Primark of all places! I completely love them,  despite the blisters they have induced as I’ve worn them in! I’ve been wearing them with everything as they’re so versatile. Anything that gives me a little bit of a height boost is always welcome too!

 

 
 
Getting a bit carried away with the Kate Bush impressions…
 


Also more from my instagram lately, including a thrifty Elvis key-ring I found at the car boot, my latest obsession of crumpets and fruit for breakfast, Spring colours around Brighton and decor from our flat!

You can follow my instagram here – even if you don’t have a smart phone!

Plenty more in the pipeline, including some fantastic music I can’t wait to share with you all!
 
Hope you’re all very well!
 
Love Yours Truly, x

  8. I have that dress in black! I really liked the white but thought the black was a more flattering colour on me, I can’t wait to wear it on a sunny day (but the buttons are a pain)!

  17. I love your new header 🙂 and before I’d even read the part about you having dyed your hair I was thinking how gorgeous the colour of your hair is – very envious of your warm, chocolatey brown! Your dress is perfect, it suits you so much. This is the second blog post today where I’m seeing someone in an all white dress – a look I’m not at all sure I’d ever pull off with my pasty skin! xx

  19. I think one of the many reasons I find your blog enchanting is the concise editing. This is basically is a simple design in the outfit and background yet it reads so full and has a strong impact. You do have a gift for blogging. Truly, I’m a fan of your vision!
