Un Reveur au Le Cirque des Reves

Wednesday 11th July

I love wide stripes, they remind me of evil circuses.

Striped shirt: second hand
Cameo brooch: costume jewellery store
Clockwinder necklace: redheart13 on Etsy
Black ruffled lacy top: second hand
Skirt: second hand, probably from the 80s.

Title: sorry if I got the grammar wrong. It's a reference to The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The Circus is known as Le Cirque du Reves (the circus of dreams) and the reveurs are the 'dreamers' those obsessed with the circus and its magical experiences. While everyone in the circus wears black and white, they also wear a hint of red (usually a red scarf) to identify each other by. I love that story, I must read it again soon.
