favourite! favourite! favourite!
that raccoon hat is so good!

Jess said...

Pretty much the best fur hat ever! And I love the whole ensemble, made especially effective with your eyeliner.
I just updated my last post with another dress.....I was staring at it for ages trying to think what it reminded me of, then it hit me...William Morris of course! And yes the spiderweb/dew sleeves are a thing of beauty! I can't believe you are moving to England,I think you'll love London. I live an hour or so away from London, but if I'm ever in the city I'll let you know xxx
