The Newest Dress

ta daaaaa

This dress arrived in the mail yesterday. The fabric has an incredible sheen to it, so much so that I thought the dress was made out of taffeta. When it arrived, I realised it was a glossy polished cotton. It's not perfect - I had to mend it a little, and perform some stain-removing maneouvres (trying saying that ten times fast) but it's worth it. It fits beautifully.

I'm wearing:

• Salmon-pink 50's crinoline, eBay (unseen).
• 50's polished cotton dress. eBay.
• Grey woolen stockings, stolen from my mum.
• Pewter-grey oxfords, eBay.


I dressed to the sounds of the Japanese "pajama pop" band Lullatone, this morning. Here is a little stop motion video of theirs. The song is "Little Songs About Raindrops":
