Head over heels




I completely fell head over heels in love when I saw this crazy printed dress. I’m a sucker for a novelty print especially of the psychedelic variety. My obsessive, er, diligent ebay searching has brought many odd and lovely things into my life and this funky little number is certainly no exception! The print is amazing and the cut is equally inventive, coupling a corset front with a long and short sleeve hybrid I had never before seen. It also boasts the best in synthetic fabric types, a silky feel that is totally machine washable. I expect to get a lot of wear and many stares outta this one!

  10. You always have the most amazing boots!! How I've searched high and low for great '60s boots to no avail....not in my teeny size (wallet AND foot), anyway. Between those and Smashingbird's great '60s mary janes (something else that I never find in my size), I'm having serious shoe envy today!!
    And the frock! My god, it's gorg! I'm diggin' the sleeve. I've never seen one quite like that either. You're so good at rocking those amazing maxi dresses! Love the print!!!
    Nice work, as always!!
