Neuf Têtes - { Nine Heads }


Oh the joy of finding a vintage treasure tucked away in your wardrobe! Long covered over by everyday essentials (read: boring with a capital b!) such a gem hides in anticipation waiting for its day in the sun.

And yesterday was my old friend's time to shine again. Flitting about in a "we're running late!" for brekkie reservations panic (yes, one has to reserve a table when a petit poppet is added to the equation). Freezing my little pa-tooty off in nought but my under garments I flicked through black, grey, black, grey...and then...♪ a little ray of sunshine..came into the world ♪.


Re purposed from a GIGANTIC vintage caftan I thrifted many moons ago, this little folky smock is one of my faves. Add a vintage tooled leather belt...."coming, Honey!", some black leggings and a skivvy and some slouchy tan boots from Scooter...."I know we're late...will be out in a jiffy"... and pull crazy hair into even crazier bun like concoction et voila! Eggs Benedict, I can taste you!!!

Note: 9 Heads is a method of drawing fashion figures using the head as a measurement.
