I capture the castle..

Dress: Handmade // Cardigan: Marks + Spencer
Coat: Marks and Spencer // Bag: F+F

This dress is another of my recent makes; it just made it into the count for 2015. I can't remember where this bright green ric rac came from, but I decided it was the perfect finishing touch to this dress, since the fabric is such a mix of greens and blues anyway. The print seems to encompass just about everything - castles, knights, owls, horses, witches and cowboys.

I paired the dress with a plain cardigan, which I picked up a couple of years ago in a charity shop to go with a dress I'd been wearing that day, as the weather had taken such a turn for the worse since I'd left the house.

Bison Brooch: Sugar and Vice
My new bison brooch and penguin bag were Christmas gifts and I couldn't wait to wear them. I decided that more glitter was required (5.30am alarms always seem to require more glitter to get me through), so went with these glittery tights and my Smooch heels. 

This morning seemed to be my coldest start for a while. I had to defrost the car for the first time this winter. Hopefully this means snow might be on the way...?

Tights: New Look // Smooch heels: Irregular Choice


  1. Oooh, those tights are really something, aren't they!!!! I love your two presents- the penguin and the bison (how thick am I not to know that's what it was!)! He really picks out the bits of brown!x

    1. They're so tricky to photograph, but they have bright blue glitter in them. Haha, I thought it was the axolotl you weren't so sure about.

  2. Glittery tights! They're amazing, I may need them in my life.

    1. They're so cheerful. I'm so easily pleased.

  3. What an adorable bag. My sister hates snow after Christmas, says there is no point when Santa isn't coming! It's been much chillier here this week though and surrounding areas have a bit of snow (we've just had frost), been a strange winter weather wise.

    1. Such a cute penguin, I bought my penguin-mad friend one and had secretly been a little sad I couldn't keep him for myself, so I was very pleased.
