Navy Nurse

Vintage Ketchum-Uniformer cape (last worn HERE) & Regalia Imports dress (last worn HERE). Miu Miu clutch & shoes.
Beading, beading everywhere from dress to toes - these shoes alone are a mini Turkish empire of minarets, mosaics, domes. My cape's a magical magician costume or nurse's winter uniform circa WWII - see the navy/red replica Briony wears in the movie Atonement (below) - a wool shield from snow.
Miu Miu spring 2010 ad (PHOTOGRAPHERS: Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott; MODEL: Lindsey Wixson) & Atonement film still
My purse was featured (in ivory) throughout Miu Miu's ads last year. Love white dresses but not bags; the lightest color I carry is camel - still neutral for spring without being so worrisome to clean... Although I do adore this season's Dolce & Gabbana grandmotherly frame handbags crocheted with flowering doilies.
