Description

I had a few ideas for more costumey and elaborate costumes this year but, unfortunately, life got in the way of creating any of those looks. By the time it was Saturday (yesterday), I had decided to make a simple Wallis Simpson-inspired dress to go with some Mrs. Simpson styling.

    A very to the point attire. I love how the specific pattern you chose fits your bodytype perfectly. Congratulations on the effort you made to style the outfit. Vintage shoes? If yes, then I’m jealous. Where on earh did you find them?
