Rouge, noir et blanc
All my favourites in one - cherries, polka dot, bows and gingham! In my efforts to wear more of my jewellery, I based this entire outfit around a single piece, the swallows brooch - which isn't in the pictures because it's pinned to my (black) coat, but did form the basis of the colour scheme. I've been waiting for a chance to wear the petticoat - isn't it just the coolest ever? The red nylon top layer has a scalloped hem, which is edged in scalloped embroidered cherry trim - too cute!
