Worn / Between summer and autumn

25 September 2013

I finally got some new photos, thanks to my best friend for taking them! I wanted to show off my new dress (link here) which, even though a little transparent, has the perfect smock style and I'm already thinking of using it as a pattern to make another (maybe I shouldn't talk in first person because I don't have a clue on sewing but I hope my friend will be willing enough to work on it with me)! The ring and necklace used to be my grandmother's and the shoes are my mostly worn out Asos brogues.

Hello there! This is Jessica from Feathers of Gold! Now that autumn is nearing, I naturally begin to gravitate towards neutral, soft, muted tones. I am in love with natural textures and prints, like this marble print silk scarf from Scout & Catalogue. Future Desert makes gorgeous prints of their photographic studies of natural minerals; I picked up one of their prints a few weeks ago and cannot stop gazing at it. Most of my shoes can be described using three words: black, leather, or boots, and those cut-out boots by Matiko certainly fit the bill.

How can you get enough of beautiful photography that takes you away and has you daydreaming for hours?! Autumn is finally here but still the weather is like summer. Can't wait for cold winds, warm clothes and hot drinks! (Click on the photos for source!)
