Jazz age inspired outfit, I would have preferred if the dress was a bit longer, but it looks OK with tights and I loved the grey lace, it is unusual to see a lace dress in this colour.
I am not sure about the jacket though, I think it is a bit garish. What do you think?

Paintings behind me- from an op shop, they will go up somewhere, one day.
I wore this to my university anthology launch, you can see the post here.
I like how the dress trails behind me in this picture, reminds me of a ghost.
The outfit was inspired by a Margaret Attwood short story, Isis in Darkness, the character of a female poet in that always inspired me when I was younger. I always wanted to be a stylish and talented writer, and I felt like I had finally arrived at who I wanted to be that night, with my work published in a university anthology, and a fashion style of my own. I am succeeding!
Look how long my hair is now!
