black, gold and berry





It was pouring with rain today and I had to take a few snaps in a greenhouse! 
The dress used to be a maxi. I had it taken up to make it more wearble.


Vintage dress - etsy
Stockings - so old, I cannot remember

  9. you ooze with fabulous-ness. The new length is perfect. So wonderful to see you in bright colours. I don't like wearing greys in cold weather. It just makes everything seem SO MUCH COLDER! Yay for brights!
