I was so excited about getting my stutterinmama order (which I posted about here), last Wednesday, that I had to wear the dress out the very next night when I went to the Mercury Cinema to see Johnny Guitar as part of the Nicholas Ray season. I'd initially wanted to go in something that channelled Joan Crawford but after this arrived I scrapped that idea.
Outfit details: 1940s dress - etsy; 1960s earrings - church op-shop; belt - gift; bangles - various; shoes - KMart.
I love the twin collar and pocket flap details on this dress (where the 'doilies' in the subject comes from) - it's a sweet little addition and I think it breaks up the polka dots quite nicely.
I didn't manage to take very many photos of myself but if you want a closer look at my earrings (that I got at an op-shop last week - one of the few pairs of clip-ons I can actually wear without too much pain), I posted a photo from photobooth on Tumblr.
These may still be round buttons but I think the black centre makes them a little different. I also like how they're doubled up.
I'm not sure how much more blogging I will get done in 2011 - I'm feeling both exhausted and overwhelmed, right now (as I'm sure many of us are at this time of year) so, as a consequence, haven't much had the right frame of mind for blogging. I'm hoping to get some ideas down and make 2012 a bigger and better blogging year for me. There will, hopefully, be a post or two before the end of the year but just in case inspiration doesn't strike, I thought I'd say something!
