This outfit began with the bag; a pale gold, shell shaped beauty. From there, I developed some sort of 'turn of the century, summer seaside look.' I love the brooch I'm wearing because it looks like its been at the bottom of the sea for a while... although its colours are pretty awkward to fit into my outfits so it really doesn't get worn much at all. Mint green and pearl accents finished the look off (pearls come from the sea too! I do like to carry a theme through).
Hat (Accessorize), bag (Zandra Rhodes), vintage shoes, vintage bag, skirt (Asos)
Wild, curly mermaid hair (i.e. I didn't have time to straighten it) and mint green eyes.
I created a little seaside themed treasury over at Etsy. I was feeling quite shell-y after I bought the bag! Creating treasuries is similar to using polyvore to create sets, except its a little more restrictive. I think I prefer it this way though.
