This post is a little bit different in the sense that it's a what I would have worn post, as opposed to a 'what I wore' one. The reason is simple: I was meant to go out with a friend but felt poorly, so we decided to have dinner & watch movies at mine, instead. But before she came over I put on what I would have worn out because I felt at least well enough for that.
This house still hasn't left my house, since I got it, which I think is a real pity because it's a doozy! (from adelinesattic) When I first got it, I imagined dressing it up with my brown heels and a little green or brown Robin Hood-esque hat (have had my eye on this Wearing History pattern for a while, actually), as well as some gloves and a nice little sweater. I would still love to wear it that way but I think it looks equally as cute with these tan & cream shoes and the little handknit (by me) hat. I'm always excited when I realise my dresses look great with lace-up shoes and socks! And I really shouldn't be surprised when they do, anymore, but each time I am.
After I had finished this hat I was initially a little worried by the size of the pom-poms...but I got over that pretty quickly. I still dream about having a head-piece like this one...but I'm really not that keen on making pom-poms that large - takes far too long!
This is/was one of those dresses I absolutely adore but couldn't quite figure out if it was 'me' or not. Does that make sense? Does anyone else have items in their wardrobes like that? Something you love but aren't (or, at least, at one point weren't) sure if they suit you, I guess. It's a little bit difficult to describe what I mean. Anyway, after dressing up and reflecting on these photos, I've decided it is me and I can't wait to wear it out. Now, if only those shoes were as comfortable as they are cute...oh dear.
