Modern Flapper

I debated about this dress for a couple of weeks. But it kept popping up everywhere, seemingly in every department store I went into, in magazines, on the internet but mostly in my head. I took it as a sign and bought it. It reminds me of the Flapper style of the 1920's... with a modern twist when paired with quirky legwear and fierce shoes.

















Top Shop pink & black tiered dress ❖ Tabio polka tights & over-knee socksBlueinc studded shoe-boots

  3. I adore the tiers of ruffles and lace panels of the dress! It's such a delicious dress, somehow it reminds me of cupcakes, sweets and delectable treats:)

  12. Almost anything with quirky legwear and fierce shoes will get my vote, but in this case the dress gets my thumbs up even without that! It looks great on you.

  28. You have the most charming style it’s so not abrupt is has this softness it makes me say awwww. Your beauty is candy for my eyes your pale skin and midnight hair goes perfect with that dress I absolutely love what I feel when am looking at your picture, I feel like am in a fairy world, but instead of wands I see mysterious eyes with great outfits, crazy right. But that’s what your picture inspires. Take care and keep doing what you do and don’t forget to share, because sharing is caring love your blog!

    lace will always be one of my very favourite things. just something about it, takes you back to another time when material was precious and every little bit was used to perfection! x
