Leave the moustache alone

Heya lovelies, how are you? Oh my it's October, only 30 days till my favourite day! I am now the proud owner of four metres of cobweb lace, planning on making a dress for everyday wear, not just Old Hallows. I just wish my hands could keep up with my brain when it comes to sewing, I need to learn to be more patient.

This was Saturday's ensemble, it's my favourite leopard print dress, it's 1970s pretending to be a bit 1930s, I can barely fasten it round my rosebuds, but elsewhere it fits like a glove!
There's a black velvet hat amongest my bird nest of a do, the coat is vintage from eBay it makes me feel like an eccentric old lady/artiste.

My look was inspired by Miss Teese in The Death of Salvador Dali, not to gush but when I discovered her when I was 15 years old, she made me realise I didn't have to have a button nose and blonde hair to feel attractive. She is truly an inspiration, cannot wait for her beauty book to come out. 
















Ahh yeah let me seduce ya, with the taste of leather.

  9. I love the 70s as 30s pieces. It's like a vintage double whammy. And thank God for women who don't want to look like everybody else.
