Mad World

Every so often, someone sends you a gift that is perfect in every way.  When Sunshine (what a beautiful name!) of Blog Full of Jelly offered to send me what she described as a vintage 'Winona Ryder' dress, I knew I was in for a treat - yet I was still surprised by the utter perfection of this dress. Lace peter pan collar, awkward hem length and fits like a dream. Of course I had to channel Winona Forever by pairing it with my new stomping boots. Thank you so much, Sunshine!!

Collecting pictures of peter pan collar dresses is becoming some sort of fetishistic obsession for me.

What a perfect dress, it looks fantastic on you!

Peter Pan collars are nowhere near as popular as they should be, they need to make a serious comeback.
