Brian Wilson, everybody!

Cardigan - Revival (from Clear-It), Dress - made by me, pearl set - Lovisa, everything else thrifted or vintage

Once again Mr Brian Wilson, Jenday Conure, is making an appearance on this blog. I haven't gotten rid of the cats, I swear (just have a glimpse of my instagram feed!), but he is much easier to pose with and is allowed outside, so he gets his photo taken a lot more often.


I wore this outfit out to discuss wedding hat designs with a certain talented someone, to say I am excited to see what she comes up with is an understatement!! I've finally narrowed down my dress design options... to two different designs. they both have pretty much the same skirt so I'm thinking I'll just make a muslin of each bodice and see which suits me best/has the least construction issues. It truly is hard designing the "perfect dress", I honestly don't think I'd ever be able to choose one if I was just buying it off the rack!


This cardigan is one of the four I bought at the Clear-It outlet on Easter weekend, I love the colour and the little puffed shoulders, and the flower embroidery matches this dress almost perfectly!


I hope everyone has had a good week!

    1. Thank you! I do indeed use rollers, not hot ones though, the foam kind you have to sleep in. My hair just doesn't seem to hold curl very well if I use any other method.

  8. OMG he is adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These photos are absolutely STUNNING!
    How on earth do you manage to have cats and birds? I have cats and guinea pigs and have a hard enough time keeping the cats away from them...they just want to sit there all day and stare at them lol. My big fat cats get VERY excited when they see birds so much as I would love to have a bird, I will not be getting one anytime soon.

  9. Oh, I adore everything about this! You are a vision of loveliness! I cannot believe your magical sewing skills, this dress is a DREAM! The cardigan is beautiful as well and the way you've put it all together is just so refreshing. I wonder if I could get my hair to look like yours if I cut it? Your dark waves are just perfect in every way!
    Also, how exciting that you get to design your wedding attire! I'm sure it will be stunning, whatever you choose because you have such impeccable taste. And your birdie is precious, my goodness :)
