Fallen Leaves and Smoking Jackets

What-ho all,

Sorry about the greeting, I’ve been watching Jeeves & Wooster (Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie) and as usual got  randomly inspired. This time it was Bertie Wooster’s smoking jackets/ gentleman’s dressing gowns. Cue raiding shops ’till I found one, and wait a moment, it’s paisley and vintage!

Then there was a weather issue. ‘What’s that Mr. Weather man? A hurricane you say?’ Right-e-o, best get out there and take a few snaps before all the pretty leaves are blown off these autumn trees then.

Think the eye make-up was inspired by a slightly later era though, 60’s in fact. It took absolutely ages, I went through about 6 face wipes and after about an hour it ended up all smudged. But hey, practise makes perfect right?

The dress is from Oasis; it has gorgeous full-length sheer sleeves with button-up cuffs. It did have a bit of a frill along the bottom, which I cut off as soon as I bought it. I wanted to give it a bit more of a 60’s feel and I much prefer it that way too.
