“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

October Paper Dress

October is my favorite month. I love Fall, and Halloween and the promise of cooler weather.
This is my dress for the Alice and Camilla dress up challenge
I tried to go for a masquerade look, kind of Anne Boleyn meets Hocus Pocus.
Did I achieve the look? I dont know, but it was fun to make.
Have a great day and Happy October!

  1. Those wings, lovely wings really set this dress apart. Is that a bodice? So much detail, including the matching sleeves and belt, all glittery and fun. And I can't forget the spiders hanging out on the skirt to add that perfect Halloween scariness. Really cute!

  2. The spiders really make the dress kind of spooky, 'cause I'm frightened of spiders. Love the waist sinched with a pretty black flower and the purple wings just finish it off! Very nice indeed!
