An Octopus’ Garden in the Shade

Cocooned away safely from the rain in Rachael’s house today, we celebrated the 20th birthday of our friend Nick. We lavished him with gentlemanly gifts (think a hip flask, playing cards, vintage men’s grooming tools…), feasted for hours, drank champagne, tried and failed to commit to a game of scrabble, and scrambled about the house and garden taking photos for hours. It was quite marvellous. The result of all this is a slew of lovely/entertaining photos that I will now share:

My outfit:

Dress: vintage 50s, purchased in Camden Passage, London – also worn here
Cardigan: half-way through the day I swapped cardigans with Jesse, so the one I’m wearing here is from Portman’s, but the other cream lace number is thrifted
Belt: Valleygirl
Stockings: Leg Avenue, purchased from “Retrospec’d” in Newtown
Flats: Accessorize
Hair Flowers: Accessorize
Necklace: vintage 50s, purchased from “Retrospec’d” in Newtown
