Weekly Wardrobe – Off to a Faery Fayre

The right level of fairyish-ness had to be achieved for visiting the Avalon Faery Fayre yesterday. I don’t want to be boring and not look remotely dressed for the occasion, but nor do I want to go all out fairy, like I would for a festival. I think I got the tone right, and when I bought the headdress moments after arriving there, my look was complete!….

Rain had no such qualms about overdoing it though, and went for a full-on pastel witch look, making herself a rather cool hat that everyone commented on. This was from cutting up and using fabric from her old dressing gown! (I’ll have her working for Oshun in no time!) The velvet cloak was adapted from one that was in my fabric stash and originally came from our local amateur dramatics group when they had a wardrobe clear-out.

My pale blush pink top was a second-hand ebay purchase and is from Odd Molly – one of my favourite ethical brands. The ribbed cotton is flattering and the lace and ribbon at the neckline is very pretty.

I’ve had the lilac cardigan for about ten years and is by Sandwich. I’m not quite sure why there are two layers to tie at the front, so I often leave the underneath layer dangling down like this, just to make it a bit more interesting!

The Khaki green skirt is from Mambo, and another one I’ve had so long I can’t actually remember where I got it from. I love the shape of it and keep meaning to try and replicate the pattern to make my own skirts. (Another sewing plan I haven’t got round to yet.) It’s a real shame that it got splodges of bleach on the front near the hem from when I was helping Rain with a craft project a while ago, so I don’t really wear it out much now. The floatyness and uneven hem give it a very fairyish feel though.

I mentioned the boots last week, but we managed a better photo this time with daylight. They’re just an old cheapy purchase that have lasted very well.

The copper and pearl bead necklace was a hand-me-down from my sister, who, after getting her colours analysed , discarded most things that were not on her swatch card. I agree, these warm tones don’t really suit me either, but they went with this autumn outfit perfectly.

Fairy headdress

The crowning glory of the outfit is obviously the headdress by Driftwood Hollow. Rain bought one from their stall a couple of years ago and is always complimented on it when she wears it, and I’ve been thinking about getting my own for a while. The colours are so pretty in this one and it matched what I was wearing perfectly, so I had to get it really! I just need more occasions to wear it.

Making a flower fairy dress for Threads of a Fairytale
September 6, 2018
I haven’t shared my work for Threads of a Fairytale here for a while, so I thought it was time I changed that! I’m also planning on blogging more often and linking more blogs with videos on my YouTube channel. There’s something about September that feels like a new year isn’t there? Even though this is the first autumn neither of our kids are starting a new term! So this dress is perfect for princess flower fairies off to the ball or alternative brides who would like to wear pink on their wedding day…..
Weekly Wardrobe – embracing autumn colours
October 3, 2016
I do feel summer colours particularly suit me and I’m reluctant to let them go. In the spirit of #IwillwearwhatIlike, I will probably continue to wear pale blue and blush pink regardless of the season, but now we’re into October, I thought I would stop denying summer is over and pick something a little more autumnal. This is just a casual outfit I wore at the weekend for no particular occasion. We had crappy weather on Saturday, but wasn’t Sunday beautiful? These autumn style photos were taken in a nearby village just as it was getting cooler….
Weekly Wardrobe – pastels
June 5, 2016
Hello folks! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. I’m starting a new regular thingumajig on here, which, as you can see, I’m calling ‘Weekly Wardrobe.’ In view of style and fashion being a frequent theme to my posts, I thought Why not share what I’m wearing? I was unsure at first, feeling it’s a little, well, self-important of me to think people will be interested, but let’s face it, in this day in age when tonnes of people are sharing their outfits on the internet, I think I’d like to join in! My fashion taste is a little random; sometimes hippy, ’50s, steampunk or lagenlook, but I like to think a little bit quirky. I’m a hoarder and rarely buy items brand new, so I’m afraid I’m not much good for ideas for you to exactly copy, but maybe offer style inspiration. I’m also going to be linking up with the fabulous Catherine Summers at NotDressedAsLamb and following her weekly themes for #iwillwearwhatIlike in rallying against the list some questionable journalist thinks people over thirty should stop wearing….
Weekly Wardrobe – red, white & blue
July 4, 2016
Across the pond our American friends are celebrating their Independence Day today, and therefore the clothing theme for the link-up with Not Dressed As Lamb are the colours of their flag. My week has mainly been recovering from Glastonbury Festival, and preparing for a three-week road trip I’m about to go on. I’m missing the fireworks by a couple of days, but next week’s wardrobe photos might have New York or Washington in the background. Very exciting!
