On Monday I went to the cinema to see The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - I was wary of the film having enjoyed the Swedish adaptation as well as the book, so I was happy when I ended up liking the film very much. However, this post is not to write about the film but to show off what I wore to see it.
I've said this before and I will say it again: I'm not a particular fan of Valentine's Day. However, I do love vintage Valentine's ephemera and also these very sweet pins. Isn't this just adorable? It combines some of my favourite things: bows, hearts and plastic. (Vintage plastic, of course.) I've found a few more similar brooches on etsy since I bought this one (one of them was a steal but was bought up whilst I was sleeping & waiting for an answer on shipping costs)...I think I started looking for them after Art Deco Dame had posted about her collection.
I feel like this dress has a very 1950s diner waitress vibe to it. I especially love the check fabric on the cuffs & at the collar as well as the oversized buttons.
This ring was made for me by one of my friends, as a Xmas gift.
