My life seems to be full of pretty things at the moment – so, in honour of their lovelyness, I have decided that they deserve a bit of a photo blog. Forgive Bens decidedly shakey photography work – hence the blurry edge to most images!
Firslt, my pretty books. Following Cie’s lovely gift of “The Magic Toyshop”, and have been inspired to buy the rest of the series from Waterstones – resulting in this fantastic collection:
I have also been prancing around in some of my favourite vintage finds:
My lovely dress – I still haven’t sewed up the back, so I have to wear it with a jacket… for some reason, I spent over my £10 limit on this one – but it is lovely! You can see my rat in the background, she sneaked in!
My lovely vintage slip – which yup, I wear as a dress! It goes fantastically with my yellow bertie shoes!
And this, actually one of Cie’s charity shop finds – which I promptly adopted. I haven’t had an occasion to wear it yet – but I’m sure I will find one!
Finally, my Laura Ashley dress from ebay – I am still trying to decide how to alter it – shortening it will be a lot of effort! Any suggestions?
