One’s sartorial taste can change and evolve for many reasons: lately, I am tempted to decree that all future clothing purchases must match this beautiful moth pin, which was given to me by someone very special for my birthday. I don’t really have much that complements the “kinda Art Deco insect” aesthetic at the moment, but in an ideal world I’d be able to wear it every day!
(Does that mean I’ll start wearing black for the first time in like five years? Probably not! Luckily, it seems I can get away with golds and creams for now!)
Update: I had some comments wondering about this pin’s provenance – and I too wanted to know! – so I consulted with my boyfriend and he pointed me in the right direction. Check out this store for all your celestial moth needs!
It’s probably no surprise that I’m clutching R.W. Franklin’s The Poems of Emily Dickinson: Reading Edition in this photograph! I’m very rarely without it these days.
Though I love watching sunlight illuminate the moth’s gold accents, I enjoy admiring it in the shade, too, where I can pay closer attention to the celestial motifs that decorate its wings.
To conclude, this dress was $5 on sale – and though I won’t reveal the embarrassing place from which it was purchased, I must admit that it excellently fits my current fascination with airy, ephemeral camisole dresses that I can wear over blouses in a vaguely fairy-tale-character fashion.
Now to see if anyone ever mistakes this for a real moth that’s happened to alight on my dress! (I should be so lucky!)
