Neo-Victorian


Whilst in Scotland recently, I had the pleasure of going around one of my favourite antiques centres. It's really close to where I stay, and is absolutely huge; I can easily spend hours in there. It's like a department store, but full of antiques. It was a struggle, but I was a very good girl this time and only came away with a few postcards, and this black lace collar.
The collar is a lovely example of Victorian tape lace, with only minimal damage. I pinned the collar to my dress using a newish brooch (which doubles up as a necklace), and wore purple lipstick to avoid looking too old-fashioned. Ooh and finally, my heels are recent additions to the shoe family. They're so gold and shiny, I can't stop looking at them. Yay!
