“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art”

Pinterest is my latest addiction, and there are some amazing pictures of period garments, costumes from films/TV/theatre and original vintage pieces, along with contemporary fashion to drool over amongst all the other stuff to be found there. I’ve been going a little crazy pinning things left right and centre, so I though I’d share some of my favourite finds so far. To see my Pinterest boards and follow me, there’s a link to the right of this page just below the subscription link. The title of this post is a quote by Oscar Wilde, and I rather feel that my life would be infinitely improved by the wearing of some of these beautiful clothes!
