The most brilliant video I have seen on youtube in a long time.
Also, the hobble skirt scene is brilliant.
A modern take on an ancient idea.
But at a price.
“This magnificent poison ring features a large central topaz stone that can be unlocked with a key to reveal a tiny secret compartment. The whole ring is covered in decorative engravings, and on each of the fours claws holding the topaz there are tiny bezel set blue sapphires (we can alternate the sapphires for diamonds if you wish, just let us know in the notes to seller section). It has been entirely hand made (including the locking mechanisms). The dimensions of the locking box are approx 12mm wide x 12mm deep x 18mm from the top of the topaz to the bottom of the box. The key to open it is approx 23mm long, and comes on a 50cm chain to be worn around the neck.”
I don’t understand the trend of crazy-break-your-ankle-but-it’s-ok-as-long-as-it’s-in-the-name-of-fashion high heels.
Edit: … … So to answer the questions in my ask box: I study historic costuming, I blog about fashion, I live in London (which just happens to be a fashion capitol), and I attend a UAL University, of course I can walk in heels.
I slipped down a flight of stairs during the monsoon season in Singapore damaging my ankle. My absolutely amazing dance teacher didn’t care and made me dance on it. Plus, I live in London (where you must walk everywhere) add that on top of a weak ankle and platforms or no, crazy high heels don’t make sense.
I see girls running and falling in the train station everyday, falling down stairs, tripping over cobble stones, and holding up the queues at the airport. These are fine for partying or a high fashion event but for daytime wear, No. (LCF girls I am talking to you. ;D).
Look at this awesome hat that was recently donated to the Museum! Haha I felt bad but I played with the pieces more than I worked!
Also, rocaille your reply when I asked what people would like to see more of: Thank you love. <3
When you step inside off the busy street it’s like you’ve gone back into the past and the outside world doesn’t exist anymore. You are taken from the modern world and you enter a place where time stands still.
For this small time you are in a looking glass and nothing matters but your tea and good company.
That’s why I love this shop. It’s an escape from reality.
