Spiderwebs are not only for October, oh no, they are a year round motif! At least I think so, and this flocked velvet and taffeta skirt seems perfectly suited for the middle of winter.
I know I just wore this jacket a few weeks ago here on the blog, but here it is again because a black velvet jacket is super useful! I find it goes with everything and I am so glad I picked it up. This velvet hat on the other hand does get worn so much that I think it might be time to invest in a second black velvet hat to introduce a bit of variety on that score. I did add another spider brooch to my collection this past Christmas, and it is contained in quite a large web! I'm always on the lookout for spider web vintage things, so I am happy to have this brooch as my first web themed piece of jewelry. I'd love a 1940's dress with a spider web motif fabric, or a solid colored dress with sequin spider web embellishment, perhaps I will have to make one!
As you can see, we are in peak winter dead-twigs-and-no-snow right now. With all of the tan/grey dormant plans I wish nature would have the decency to at least snow and render the world sparkling and charming at least. I haven't been able to capture any photos in the snow this year and I'd really like a nice dusting of white to wander about in. Then again, it can snow as late as May here sometimes, so there is plenty of time left for a more wintry backdrop to appear.
I spent all day yesterday working on the Victorian Petticoat for my bustle dress, so I'll talk about the process and show you all the results tomorrow :) Till then have a fantastic Friday!
