old dress & new shoes

yet more new shoes!
they are nice and soft so don't hurt my feet (that are wider than normal, like chimp feet)
this dress is from 1920s (a present from Nao), it's the first time to wear it as its 33 degrees here in London today! I love the label, I wear it back to front so you can see it. I know its actually underwear, but who cares!
I tried taking some pictures in the mirror of my dress but it didn't work! I like the cloudy reflection though...

that's me!

As I have the camera in the workshop...I thought I'd take a few photos of the things in it that I love...like this hat box from Greenwich market...

...and I also love the insides of old hats...such a shame they are always hidden. This one has papery silk lining with cream leather rim, amazing!

I wish coat hangers still looked like this.

I love these lion bookends too, trying really hard to be scary...they make me laugh every time I look at them!
Well, these were taken in the workshop, its full of old stuff we collected in the last 6 years...it gets smaller every week.


  1. oh my gosh i almost buy the brown ones when i left you at the workshop last week :-)
    i love them!
    great dress too :-)

  2. That is a very cute dress! Who cares if its underwear?!

    I love the mirror you have used to take your pics, the frame is beautiful!

  3. you look lovely - quite reminiscent of Brideshead Revisited or a tennis player in the 1920s. the mirror is also beautiful.

    love all the things around the studio. oh siiiigh. to have a studio.

  4. What a lot of lovely things :) Gorgeous dress and I am coveting the white shoes.

  5. So beautiful - all of it!

  6. Second photo down I love it and it is very beautiful.

  7. Hey I love your homage to vintage Wimbledon - those shoes are fierce. And nice job on the silver tricycle (lucky nouse)! Jxx
