One of my favourite novels is The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice. Set in the 1950s, this coming of age story is full of sparkling wit, engaging characters and vivid imaginings of a crumbling manor, a quaint and jumbled flat and heady parties in London.
Absolutely beautifully written (it's rare to find an author who crafts their words so seamlessly and elegantly as Eva does), it is a story that truly draws you in; and when I saw this dress, my imagination conjured Penelope, the central character, wearing this soft, floating, faerie-esque gown as she discovers life, love and herself. Highly recommended reading for lovers of vintage!
Truly dreamy, the gown is from Viva Vintage.
