A friend recently directed me towards Bows & Bandits, an online shop which has GREAT little Austrain dresses! I absolutely adore drindls and suddenly remembered I own one not worn to death just yet because I bought it this summer and it was far too hot to wear such thick cotton. I can’t believe I forgot I owned it though because it’s AWESOME.
I removed the ultra Austrianness of it though. Since the dress is a little too big for me, it looked awkward when pairing with the belt I added too accentuate the fact that I have a waist.
Luckily it won’t be hard to add back on when I feel like going all Austrian! The fabric’s lining is also pretty sweet and makes me wonder what this dress was used for? Seeing five interlocked rings like those from the Olympics, a castle and a little guy langlaufing/cross-country skiing, I’d like to believe this dress was used to support royal Austrian langlaufers during the Olympics! XD
I can’t help but sighing over how much I love this coat! I love every possible angle of it and wanted to show you the profile which is one of my favourite parts of it.
Ruffles! 😀 Also, Saturday I’m going to a play based on Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights which is one of my FAVOURITE novels of all time! I can’t wait! Though it’ll probably be horrible compared to the book, I love seeing all kinds of adaptations. Maybe I just love seeing adaptations failing though because no doubt no one will ever even remotely come close to Brontë’s genius. I’m in complete awe of how she manages to make the readers sympathise with two of the most horrid characters ever written about, Catherine and Heathcliff. Their actions are so completely repulsive to me yet their love for each other is what makes them human rather than the monsters they can be sometimes. Sigh, I can’t wait to see how they’ll screw up this Saturday! 😀
