The Rattling Frame

I'm a sucker for dresses that look like they were made out of someone's old curtains; I don't know what it is, but there's something about brocade that I love. So, I couldn't resist yet another heavy brocade dress especially when this one looked so perfect for autumn. The temperatures are still fluctuating wildly and winter winds are rolling in (literally), so I chose to take pictures inside one of the trains on this day as much to escape the wind as anything else. Korkease was kind enough to send me a couple of their fall shoes and I couldn't resist these chunky oxfords. Thick heels are easier to walk in and there's something about a heavy shoe that goes nicely with thick brocade.

  8. Love those shoes! You're right that a heavier shoe does seem to go better with brocade. Also, congrats on your marriage proposal; I hope you and anonymous will be very happy! Hee hee :)

  17. That leather jacket has such an Amelia Earhart feel, I love it! And you need to just move that streetcar to your yard. It's the best discovery ever.

  20. I think I may have said this before, but that scarf is awesome, it looks a lot like one I'm making. Great outfit total and nice pictures too!

  21. You really are a vision. The traincar that you frequent is a dream, by the way. There were some old carts on post at my old home, but they were just flat-- no walls or anything.

    This dress is beautiful. Most of my dresses look like old tablecloths! :)

  22. I love this!!
    Autum everywhere. Love your culry short hair.
    Can I say something? I feel like I have saw you grow up through your blog, I like that.

  23. I love how you worked the brocade dress with the leather jacket. The knitted scarf added that nice soft touch to the whole outfit. :)

    also, this is a bit of a random question, but is that a ring I see on the ring finger of your left hand?!? eep!

  25. @thedemuremuse.com, I'm wearing a ring yes, but I'm not engaged. It's just a ring my father got me when I was younger (& I tend to wear jewelry on my left b/c I write & draw with the right one).

  26. The inside of the abandoned train is the perfect setting to your outfit (well anything you wear really). It’s just so lovely. I especially love the peeling paint…it makes me wonder about all the people who use to ride when it was pristine. See, here I go reminiscing again. Anyways, I too adore that skirt; you don’t see too many skirts like that around, well at least not anymore. By the way, it’s always nice to see you smiling in a post dear.
