At midnight, I'll turn into a pumpkin and drive away in my glass slipper.

 Oh hello there petals, how the devil are you? I tend to dress for escapism and what better place to escape to than Roman Holiday (1953). Alas I lack the elegance of Audrey, but I created one of my favourite looks of hers; all nipped in waist and tailored shirt, which is one of my favourite silhouettes. I certainly brightened up my £3 Asda shirt with a ribbon and a faithful black circle skirt.  





I need more skirts like this

  1. So pretty!! Audrey looked so adorable in that film! (Of course, she always looks adorable, 'cause she's Audrey, but that's one of my faves). Your room is also the bee's knees, I love the furniture and that lovely chandelier!

  4. Very nice! I love this look, too - so simple but works so well. And I've always wanted my hair cut like Audrey's in Roman Holiday but am far too attached to my long locks at present.

  10. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
