Wednesday

She lived alone, except for a nameless cat.

When I was little, Moon River was one of my FAVORITE songs to play on the piano. While this most certainly isn't my favorite Audrey Hepburn film (dare I say!) I still love to play it to this day (and now, I have it on vinyl, too!). I found this song appropriate for this outfit because of the old feeling I wanted. I bought this petticoat on ebay some time ago.. but couldn't find the right dress to go over it. It baffled me and so I hung it up in my closet for a few weeks until I really had time to create something beautiful with it. I love the striking yellow hue of it.. and it is literally overwhelming in my closet! I had to put in a nail above all of my clothing in my closet just so I could hang it. It's rather nice when you look up in my closet, though, because all you see is just this beautifully romantic yellow tulle like puff! If you'd like to see me play piano, click here.
love, polly :)
