Pilgrim Penguin American Gothic Wednesday Addams Blythe dress

I recently bought this fabulous Stop Staring frock from my pals the Darling Sisters

Isn't it DIVINE?

I adore it, but will have to be very careful how I style it, as it could easily tip into the costume category.
It has elements of pilgrim...
and Wednesday Addams...
...both of them
It is a bit gothic...
...and pretty cute
Catherine Deneuve in her beautiful version in Belle du Jour
and this gorgeous gal from Chictopia in her version
and look at the divine lines on this classic
One of my heroes Chrissy Amphlett has always had her own sexy style
And this little bit of whimsy found here

This treasure found here
Life magazine archive
Ginger Rogers in Swing Time
Found here
You're welcome
Ah, google image search... you never fail me.

Great post - that dress is beyond stunning. I appreciate the chihuahua pilgrim A LOT. Catherine Deneuve is utterly amazing.

Saucy frock,Mrs Misfit! Woof!
I don't mind tipping into costume occasionally.

I love it all, but the shoes just blow me away! It is def not too over the top!

Well thanks so much ladies!

I am informed, by a very reliable source, that that is a Pomeranian puppy. Whatever it is, it looks terrified!
