You wear a crown but you're no king..

Bag: Accessorize

Dress: Handmade (Christine Haynes Emery) // Jumper: F+F
Spatz ankle boots: Irregular Choice
Tights: Primark // Crown headband: H+M (I think)
I wonder if I can get away with wearing a crown every day? This was added as something of a nod towards Halloween for an event I helped out at the other day, as I didn't really have any costume ideas and it was all a bit last minute.

Another of my dresses from the weekend. I don't recall from whence this dragon and knight print fabric came, but I pounced upon it in the fabric trolley on Sunday and decided it needed to be an Emery. I've mentioned before that I don't buy the majority of my fabric with a project in mind. Unless I'm making something specific, I'll get the fabric because I'm drawn to the design, then figure out what dress it will become at a later date. It's rare I find I've gone off a fabric I'd bought earlier, although if that does happen, I'll try to use it for something else (maybe a gift or something) or sell it on.

It rather feels as though this week has been going on for years; I can't believe it's only Thursday. Ho hum. Off to the ballet tomorrow, so that's something to look forward to. And I have an amazing cake recipe to have a go at this evening after the gym as I'm off to see friends at the weekend.


  1. Cool outfit, love the irregular choice shoes!

    I have a new post up on the blog, would love to know your thoughts:

    1. Thanks - I love the necklace you're wearing!

  2. I'm so jealous of your dress making skills! Another fabulous dress! Oh the camera bag, I swear I'm wearing mine in almost all of my outfit posts recently. Such a great investment <3

    1. Thank you - I seem to go through phases with handbags, I've used it loads recently.

  3. Love this outfit. The colours and fabrics are dreamy! xx

    1. Thanks, I feel as though the orange and greys are so perfect for autumn.

  4. That is a really fun outfit. Wish I could see the crown properly-hard to distinguish against the shelf!

    1. Argh, sorry - I did post an Instagram picture of my face with the crown but didn't really like it so didn't put on here.
