Thanks to the lovely Victorian Kitty at Sophisticated Noir for making me re-evaluate and examine my wardrobe, for the theme of Red & Black week.
I rarely wear red – or at least that’s what I thought – so believed I’d struggle with this, my first mutual blog participation thingie. Then I had a good clear out of my previous corp uniform and came across this beautiful dress I’d forgotten about, the Seth dress by Hell Bunny:
Him Underfoot was very happy to assist in the photography as I pranced about like a stumpy pony in my study, managing to avoid doing anything constructive whatsoever. I adore the print on this dress, spiders, stars and rather randomly – chandeliers.
Sitting on the dog’s people watching chair:
I’ve had a lot of fun rummaging in boxes and rediscovering old favourites – the bag was a gift from my best friend and is covered in tiny skulls (as are my earrings – will do an accessories post later this week). Boots are my lovely Doctor Martin Darcies. I’d originally bought this dress for Halloween in Whitby last year but never wore it as I’m a little unsure about halter necks (and their public bosom security properties…!).
It’s lovely to have the time and space to take part in this challenge – I’m not particularly fashionable or photogenic, but it is nice to take some of the beautiful dresses I have out of storage to wear on a more regular basis and to truly appreciate them – time to say out with the dowdy. Hope everyone else is having as much fun with this as me!
(she says, now off to don hiking boots and jeans to rummage about in the woods for the day!).
