On Fields & Fields Of Flowery Graves; Thats Where You'll Find Me.

Currently Listening to:
Where You'll Find Me by Audrye Sessions






















(Vintage wedding dress from Kitten Paws Vintage, thrifted BC Footwear boots, Victoria's Secret Garter Belt, nude seamline stockings purchased online from Lucy B, flower ribbon-belt handmade by moi)

My dress from Kitten Paws Vintage came. I feel very girly in it, although I have to say that wearing it is a little bitter-sweet. (It's a long story, I won't get into details.) It's vintage perfection in a very pale, peachy-cream color that I just adore. The gathered sweetheart bust and the tulle make me feel so flirty too. I'll admit: today I didn't do much, but the way I see it; that's no excuse not to dress up. Lol. Besides, I can't just sit around and mope! Instead, two very productive things I did do included making homemade "whoopi" cakes and doing this mini shoot with my mom to get my mind off of things.

Also, there's a very interesting story behind the doll in that last shot. My mom made it for me when I was little, and whilst sewing, she stuck herself with the needle on accident and bled a little on it, and the stain it left was in the distinct shape of a tiny heart. What's more odd, is that the stain is right where the heart would be. She ended up sewing a gold heart charm with a ruby in it on top, but you can still see the stain to this day <3
