curse of the starving class


Whenever one goes to the theater, one should dress up. No matter what the show.

I freaking love this dress, for many reasons.

1. The collar. Can we talk about the collar? It reaches my nipples. That my friends is badass. I don’t know what would possess someone to make a collar that effing pointy, but god bless them!

2. Wool double knitty goodness. It’s a bit itchy, but man is it comfortably stretchy!

3. Leather buttons.

4. The color. Oh, buttery yellow delight!

5. It was handmade by someone in the 1960s, but it fits me perfectly.

My lip stain, btw, is Sephora “lush blush” in Pinot. I highly recommend it.

Truebluemeandyou: Obsessed with this collar and bodice (also liked this Tumblr blog and her wordpress site). Reminds me of a collar I saw in Birdsong on Masterpiece Theater. I haven’t deleted part one of Birdsong, not because I loved it but because of the fashion (red belted khaki sweater, and a collar like this).
