A few different things from the past few weeks...... A ruffly cotton voille 30's dress with a pretty houndstooth-esque printed skirt. I wore it around on Halloween day, the weather was so perfect I didn't even need a sweater! I sort of gave up on shopping for myself and have just been sneakily taking a dress or two from the ones I find for the shop, this is one of them!

I've never seen this movie, but it looks so great! That little girl has the best autumn/winter clothing! And her hair! The cloth ribbon thing definitely looks much better on her and not so great with bangs.

And a gigantic 60s carpet suitcase I found at an estate sale. I once saw a similar bag at a store in Manhattan that was around $700 and it's haunted me ever since. Three years later I finally found one for what seems like chump change compared to the Manhattan price!

Two of my favorite prints in the Libris Lunaria shop ... from a British mycology book... There's 5 plates from that book in the shop and I think I have to add more, they're just so great!

The cloth-in-hair is so pretty. I have all these antique textile scraps lying around; this is a perfect excuse not to throw them out. I used to love The Secret of Roan Inish when I was little, though I haven't seen it in years; seals were my favorite animal back then so I was a little obsessed with it actually.

Oh! and thank you for sharing that "False Memory Syndrome" song yesterday, by the way... it's really exactly what I'd expect to hear in a splendid abandoned ballroom. Haunting but so beautiful!

Yes! The girl in that move has been a style inspiration for me for years! I even took screen shots with the future plan of recreating her colorful fairisle sweater.....

nicole said...

I actually own this movie on DVD and watch it regularly. It is the most charming story, and the little girl in it ROCKS! I deeply covet her little fair-isle sweaters and vintage dresses. You actually look a lot like her!

LOVELOVELOVE that bag. What a find!

❤Cate❤ said...

Beautiful as ever!

Penny Dreadful said...

The carepet bag is incredible, I have wanted one of those for so long (such a good size too). Hopefully I get some of your good luck!

Amber Blue Bird said...

pretty indeed and the film The Secret of Roan Inish is one of the best, you should watch it!

Christy said...

This outfit is so lovely and romantic! You have the very best collection of pretty, gauzy 30's dresses, and the red lipstick adds just the right touch!

Marcheline said...

Roan Innish is a great movie. Totally see it.

I love the ribbon in your hair! It reminds me of when I was little and had just read Little Women for the first time. You know how Amy ties her hair up with cloth every night to make her hair curly? I did it every night for a month!
I love visiting your blog-everything is just so charming!

The Secret of Roan Inish is an odd story but it is really pretty too. There is a character named Patience in which I named my dog after from that film.

I love the skirt you are waering in the first photo.
