Never Fully Dressed

A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across a lovely little stall selling wistful looking floaty garments in Spitalfields Market. The name of this purveyor of dream-full bits is: Never Fully Dressed.

I know that I have no business buying sheer shirts at this time of frost-bitten year but I couldn't help myself.

I like to defy the seasons...

To my own detrement.

One painted foot. No Idea why I do this.

The stillness and the blur.

Lazer eyes.

I wear a Russian Ruble.
The necklace that I am wearing is actually a Russian antique gold Ruble that dates back to 1899 and is a cherished gift from my Father-in-law. This was bought by his grandmother on her first visit to London many many years ago. She took 5 back to Japan with her and I am the proud owner of the last remaining one.

  1. Oo I love your blouse! I'm really liking sheer blouses atm especially pussybow ones :D
    Pretty pretty pretty!! xxxx

  2. I have stocked on some sheer blouses as well (well, before this frickin cold came along) from gmarket and you give me new inspiration of how to wear them (with some fierce leggings on): I normally wear them a bit demure or feminine.

    In the second photo you have the softest expression I have seen from you. You often have that 'I'm attractive but don't mess with me" look, which I really like, but this is a sweet change to see.

  3. Stunning Sumi you look a lickle rock and roooooolllllll

    ROLL ON SPRING ALREADY!! Thank you for the lovely comment.

    @ Hitomi

    Jeeeeeepers! Really? You and me both know that I am more granny than rocker...shhhhhh!!

  5. that's a very smexy outfit!! :D I think that sheer shirts looks wonderful on you. I think there's no season limit for shopping for pretty clothes! x3

  6. I love it! Sheer gorg-e-ous!
    Can relate to the not wanting to layer up. I never used to feel the cold. Although this year I'm constantly freezing! Had to womble my way out of the house looking like a blanket monster! Plus my initial excitement at our snow has turned to abject fear, as it has all frozen overnight turning the country into a giant ice rink. Makes for good people watching though ;)

  7. you are way too early for spring mademoiselle. but then again, you do get the best bargains when you buy off season.
    great look.
    quick question - why one foot?

  8. You look gorgeous!!! Great shots and post!

  9. Oh my, I adore that top...you totally rock it....

  10. How do you manage to make pleather leggings looks classy..?? I just don't understand how you do it! <3

  11. You look UHHMAZING! What is that little lighty thingy? What fun if you could really sport them as glasses! :D
