Throwback Thursdays:

“The Flowers of the Fields of France” by Norman Hartnell of Duchesse satin, embroidered with pearls, beads, brilliants and gold thread. Worn by Queen Elizabeth II on a state visit to Paris in 1957.

Attempting to channel my inner Audrey Hepburn here.  I know, the bun looks terrible.  Audrey always had such cool hairstyles, especially when she wore her hair up.  She was such an amazing influence.   I’m wearing a 50s style dress that I altered into a halter top, which seemed to look better than the original version with puff sleeves.  

(By the way, if you like this picture, I’d be really happy if you reblogged it.  That’s the only way I get to meet more people like you).
