and I wondered what I came there for


This dress lay forgotten on one of my closet shelves until I rediscovered it today. I was sorry that it had stayed there so long - the fit is wonderful and the turtle neck actually does keep me warmer than usual. I adore the bohemian effect that this hat adds, and I love how black is the ultimate background for bold silver jewelry.







dress - thrifted ; shoes, hat - H&M ; tights - Worthington ; knuckle ring - Claire's ; other rings - gift shop ; necklace - DIY'd

Hi sweety, hope you're well! You look gorgeous, love the hat & dress. I was just thinking who do you remind me of, then it hit me...Brit singer Eliza Dolittle. Only you have Much Much better style.
