Of mermaids and snails..

Dress: Handmade (Sew Over It "Betty" pattern)
Bedroom Antics heels: Office // Snail bag: Kate Spade
Coat: Monsoon // Necklace: H+M

A rather hastily thrown-together outfit for a meal out on Friday evening. I haven't worn these shoes for years (partly because they take the best part of a year to lace up), but I was reminded of this dress and scoured the shelves looking for a pair of shoes which would go with it. 

Any excuse to wear this pretty Monsoon coat goes, so the fact it was a fairly mild evening swung it for me. And the snail clutch bag is still one of my favourite things ever, even if my phone is now too big to fit in it and zip it closed. Bah. 

It's been one of those weekends where you fit soooo much in and it's over in a flash, so I'm now thoroughly wrecked but it was totally worth it. 


  1. I wish I could still wear heels that high, what incredible shoes! xx

  2. That dress is gorgeous! xx

  3. Gosh I know, those shoes do my head in! It takes long enough just to get your foot in under all the ribbons, nevermind lace them up. I always feel tempted to have the ribbons lying perfectly flat too, but that would add on another 5 hours!

    1. I tried to make them neat but in the end gave up, they still got quite a few comments when we were out for the meal. They're really lovely.
