I didn't set out to put together an outfit inspired by The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, but while editing these photos, I saw definite links. The most obvious being the fox necklace I purchased at The Museum of the Little Prince in Hakone, Japan. (I'm not complaining, but why is there a Little Prince museum in Japan anyway? I still don't understand!) Then, I started thinking that maybe the color of the 60's dress reminded me of the rose in the story. So yes. A Little Prince outfit.
I'll admit that this outfit is probably a better reflection of what I've been wearing lately than many of my recent posts. I love my delicate 30's and 40's dresses, but sometimes it's nice to toss on a sturdy dress that doesn't need to be dry cleaned. And I can hardly ever be bothered to do my hair before class, so into a messy ponytail it goes!
And just to round out the Little Prince references, here is a photo of one of my latest estate sale finds: a 1940's dress made of black rayon crepe studded with metal stars. I found it in a cold, damp house tucked in a coat closet between a whole bunch of bad 80's stuff. It only cost 2 dollars, and it's probably among my top 5 estate sale finds ever!"If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers..."
