(outfit: Edwardian jacket; antique slip; Dr Marten boots)
Hello all! This little Edwardian silk jacket is my newest obsession; it's so pretty (very fragile, though...I have to wear it with care). These are some more pictures from my weekend trip home; just hangin' around at yet another abandoned house (this one is just down the street). Me, creepy? No!
It’s actually quite funny: the weather that day was in the 70s and all the little songbirds were singing. I swear the sky was blue earlier, too. I was having so much spring-ish fun taking these pictures at our neighborhood abandoned farm! Well, I then got home and uploaded my pictures only to see that the early April landscape had translated as a stark, gothic, even bleak world on film. I still like the pictures, they just make it seem more like late Autumn than the springtime. My black-and-white Victorian ensemble isn't exactly lightening the mood either; oh well. I assure you I haven't gone goth, and the bright colors will return shortly!
(Some candid facial expressions caught here, haha; I was watching my dog!)
Post title comes from this 1930s all-girl string band's ultra creepy version of the haunting folk murder ballad of Pretty Polly!
I would also like to thank you all for the tremendously kind comments on my "abandoned cottage" post; you're all such dolls! Welcome new followers, too! I get that disbelieving "they like me, they really like me!" feeling every time; thanks so much everyone! ♥
