Guy Fawkes Night attire

I’m not sure my American readers will know who Guy Fawkes was, so just in case, here’s a little history lesson: Some guy called Guy Fawkes wanted a Catholic king, so on November 5th 1605  he attempted to blow up the House of Lords. He was caught, tortured and died for his trouble, and for some unknown reason, we celebrate this failed attempt at rebellion. We Brits love a tryer I suppose. So every year we have bonfires and fireworks displays and pretend it’s warm enough for a barbecue in the dark – usually run by the local Scout group…

So anyway, here’s a selection of fire inspired clothing, including a dress I made that I’m particularly proud of.

I love the flaming trim on this 50s style dress by Bijutsusan.

And if you’re going to a fireworks party as a fairy, then this pair of beautiful organza wings by Fairytrade are the perfect accessory…

In fact they would go beautifully with my fire inspired dress at the top, by Oshun…

 

 

Be safe with those sparklers!

And they say things along the lines of wanting to know how to dress a bit more adventurously. I’ve even had a request from a couple of people in a marketing facebook group I’m in, to write a mini ebook on the subject! I may well do that, but for now, I thought I’d start a series where I point out some of the details I like in garments that are just a bit different from your usual standard clothing…

Although it was the heaviest item of clothing in the suitcase, which was straining past the 20kg limit, I couldn’t travel to America without this new grey dress I recently bought from Joe Browns, I absolutely love it! And then, during our month in Connecticut we had the opportunity for a brief weekend trip to Boston, Massatusetts, so we thought we’d use make the most of the New England fall colours to take outfit photos for the blog….
