My son paid us a surprise visit on this glorious Sunday, resulting in many mind-blowing, hilarious and futuristic discussions and plans.
The result? Today's 1920s-meets-Star Trek outfit:).
The dress is an original late 20s silk chiffon number with creme lace inserts in the front and back. I love the fit around the hips with its finely pleated flounces.
The dress is so incredibly old that the sleeves are starting to shred. So why am I wearing it? Because it's beautiful, old and has soul.
The shredding makes it even more charming and accessible.
Plus it's my favourite colour - green.
I've married the dress with AA silver leggings and tried it with Docs, blood-red platforms and a black silk jacket.
I also added a 1940s velvet, veiled hat; then a vintage Liberty of London silk scarf.
Question: Do you think old, delicate clothing or accessories should be worn or saved for posterity?
