Y'know, I used to avoid brand sites because I knew this would happen. I knew I'd start pining for things I could never afford. I knew I'd start to envy those that could. I knew I'd find all these beautiful things to put my own sewing skills to the test.
Here's the newest item I would love to covet but never will actually own:
La Fee de Rose Noire
The detail that's gone into this dress is just lovely. To me, it's like Old School - renewed. Better. Rejuvenated. There's stunning lace, epic corset lacing, ruffles galore, and roses. It's decidedly romantic and Gothic - what's not to love?
Roughly translated, the name of this item is The Fairy of Black Roses or Black Rose Fairy. I have a bit of a soft spot in my heart for the Fair Folk, so the name of this dress drew me right in. I adore all the details of this dress and I would love to coordinate it in so many ways.
However...there's a hitch. It's over $600 American dollars. So, I won't be buying it. Ever. Unless it goes on sale for a price below $300. Which is....unlikely.
Instead, I will simply keep the image in my head and perhaps one day sew myself up something with an equal amount of fine detail and decadence.
