Bring Me A Bouquet Of Your Thoughts

Reading tends to plant thoughts in your head. My favorite authors are deeply rooted in my heart, but even blog browsing plants seedlings in my mind. Gardens are unruly things and I dislike weeding...Anyway, when I saw this dress I was reminded of how Kater wrote about wanting and wearing vintage night gowns. This dress is not vintage or a night gown, but it captures that spirit rather well. I love the soft romantic feel of it. It was the perfect dress to throw on during a sweltering day; I truly could only wear the cardigan around the air conditioned world inside. Also, a closer look at my bee wing bulb necklace from Natalie Joy. Isn't it lovely? Natalie says all of the bee wigs were collected off the streets of Portland, so no bees were harvested for their wings. It rather amuses me to picture people inching along the road looking for sadly fallen little bees and their delicate wings.

  1. That dress is completely gorgeous and reminds me of The Woman in White, among other things. I've been loving Kater's literary musings, to say nothing of all her white dresses and nightgowns!

  6. I completely agree about how certain authors tend to influence your thinking. I long to make my life a little bit like my favorite books or lives I read about from afar.
    Your necklace is also darling. I did a research paper about bees and have had a fondness for them ever since.

  7. That necklace is lovely! Even if it were just the lightbulb I would adore it, but, combined with the bee wing, it reminds me of amber (which is one of my absolute favourite stones).

    Also, I've been wondering this about those Jeffrey Campbell's for a while now: are the heels solid wood? Or are they printed with a faux wood-grain?

    Not sure if it's me watching The Little Mermaid over and over again with my daughter, but you totally look like Ariel - who I love!

  10. I adore that dress! It has this whimsical quality that reminds me kind of of the delicate lace dresses women wore at the turn of the century but then it has the cut and drop waist of the '20s. It's an interesting juxtaposition for sure!
