Ragamuffin Chic

I've passed this old bunker dozens of times without realizing it was there (it is really well hidden from the road). When I got off the main path and saw it, I had to do a bit of exploring. It was created for military drilling, but clearly hasn't been in use in years. Which is not to say that this region has not been in use for drilling. I was actually exploring the bunker when there was a huge explosion that shook the ground. I only venture into the areas not directly in use, but there's a lot of noise pollution from artillery, tanks, and such that crosses into every zone.
My outfit today is rather an odd hodgepodge of winter and spring pieces. My vintage fur collar always makes me feel rather decadently bourgeois, while I fear I look positively ragamuffin. Still, I'm wearing a floral dress and milkmaid braids, so it's still spring-like, no? A modern knock-off of this style vintage floral dress seems to be in every chain store lately; my dress is one of the originals and a gift from my sponsor Rock Paper Vintage. Little floral dresses are clearly and eternal spring classic.

  7. I love this dress with those tights. They are a gorgeous color. The booties are a nice touch.

    I have a fondness for finding abandoned structures. Once visited an abandoned residence referred to as Pig Farm. I found some old prescription bottles and tried to do research on the family but never found anything.

  8. I'm still totally in love with those shoes. And now I need to know how you do that with your hair, every time I try it all falls apart after the first five minutes.

    hair tutorial idea?

    with love,

  15. I love your hair like that! Whenever I try that style, it looks a little odd (to say the least!)

  17. *sigh* you just rock, really. I can't get enough of your posts or your style - you just seem to get it so right every time!

    And yes, black dresses with floral prints are as ubiquitous as fledglings at this time of the year - I must own about four, and counting! Still, it doesn't stop them being lovely ^-^

  23. your hair looks so healthy!!

    do you mean to say the ground actually shook while you were there? I would have been frightened!

  24. I love crumbling architecture. There's just something about the texture and landscape binary opposition to the clothing one displays in that landscape. The juxtaposition of fashion vs crumbling buildings just fascinates me.

    My hometown Victoria (Vancouver Island) has a lot of those bunkers all over the place. They even have a park called Bunker Hill full of them. Kind of reminds me of my childhood to see you in one of these. But you know, without the little kids of bad little kid fashion.

  26. This is all so adorable! It's bizarre and surreal to think you take all of your cute outfit photos in a military testing zone where there are explosions and tanks... But those booties are wonderful! I have been searching for the exact style.
