we dream in frills


I must confess I have a slight obsession and I am no afraid to admit it – plus I know that I am not alone. For a few years now (about 4 actually) I have openly gawked, drooled and scoured the Internet, boutiques and stores for anything Marie Antoinette inspired; a slight problem I can’t find myself able to extinguish. I would fall asleep with my head bursting with opulence and gorgeous fabrics and shoes (!) straight from the movie itself. Although the majority of that flick was rather snooze-worthy, I can’t help but be unremorsefully jealous of every costume change and ridiculous hairpiece worn.

Now, these shoes pictured here are a product of the above fascination and they remain my little slice of Versailles. Although wildly uncomfortable if worn too long, I will happily parade anywhere in these beauties provided that a great deal of seating will be available. But besides that, they compliment this adorable frilly dress perfectly and provide a more modern (and tame) perspective on the stunning fashions that created a fashion storm in the 1700s and then again in 2006. I am still on the hunt though! :}

  7. Don't worry you aren't alone in that obsession!

    Very jealous of those amazing shoes, the whole outfit looks gorgous on you. I saw the dress in the shops, however I couldn't seem to make it work, you've got an amazing feeling in this outfit though!

    Great pictures too.

  51. Though your inspiration might be Marie Antoinette, I think you look like a beautiful flapper girl!

    I love Irregular Choice shoes. I always drool over them when I'm in the UK. But, well, they're too irregular for someone who half lives out of a suitcase. Someday! ; )

  52. What a wonderful sight.

    When I saw that first picture, I stood straighter on my chair, looking at that marvalous little dress and those brillant shoes.

    I so love the out-of-time impression this outfit give (and yeah, these heels are so Marie Antoinette-ish) with this cute hairband.

    I know : you make me think of those circus ladys from the 30's !
