Picnic at Hanging Rock revisited

So I bet you're all wondering how to translate Picnic at Hanging Rock in to clothing? Well simple, lashings of white, mint greens and pink.
My jumper is Laura Ashley, the owl ring is accessorise and the green one I purchased at Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair. The headband and the owl I found for about 20p at a carboot.
A bit of lace wouldn't go a miss in this outfit either and maybe some brooches (see below for inspiration)
Of course pretending your living a dreamlike, neither here-nor there, existence helps too.

Picnic at Hanging Rock

At University today we had to make collages . I chose Picnic at Hanging Rock as my inspiration, it has the most beautiful costumes, all Edwardian nighties and pie crust shirts and generally has the most lovely dreamy feel to it.

Spots vs Stripes



Spots or stripes? or both? Such a difficult decision when getting dressed in the morning !

Bottle Green.

I have become very attached to this hat over the last week, I purchased it on a rushed trip to the Zara sale. Its a great size big enough to shield my face from the outside world but small enough to allow me through doorways ! The green velvet suit is another new acquisition (you can tell its loan time!) I purchased it from ebay for ten pounds ! It arrived yesterday morning and I put it on straight away. The bottle green shade is perhaps my favourite colour at the moment, it reminds me of secret gardens, the barbican conservatories and my mum when I was small (she wore a lot of green). The scarf I'm wearing belonged to my mum in the '80s she loaned it to me when I was about 16 and then when I moved to London my brother took it on. However, he recently left it at my house so I have claimed it back ! Its slightly more weathered than when I had it, it now bares stains of fake blood from when George dressed as a zombie Lord Byron on Halloween, I still love it though as it reminds me of home !

Dream Worlds.

Today Ed and I stumbled upon our new spiritual home. Filled with divine fireplaces, mirrors and stained glass; Westland is like a dreamland. It reminded me a little of the Sir John Soane Museum but amazingly everything is for sale.
