who done it?

Yesterday I went to a 1940's themed film noir party. Unfortunately I don't have any good pictures of my costume, and the ones that I do have, have my friends in them, so I won't post those in order to protect their privacy. It was such an amazing party, and I had a great time playing a different person. When I woke up this morning, I was still in mystery solving mode, so my outfit was influenced a lot by thoughts of Sherlock Holmes (the old movies), and Nancy Drew. I'm an avid collector of Nancy Drew books, and when I was little I used to make up fake mysteries to solve.

shirt, cardigan, skirt: vintage. shoes: Capezio. jewelry: gifts. old watch: dad's. tights: unknown.

I'm a Nancy Drew fan myself and I love your concept for this shoot. You are so cute. xoxo

I love Nancy Drew and I think my favorite book genre is mystery. Have you ever played the point-and-click Nancy Drew PC games? They are strangely addicting.

Awesome outfit. :]

You always look so quirky cute. :) Anyway so sorry I haven't been here in a while.

Just a bit disappointed that you don't have any good pictures of your costume. I love film noir so much. That's a such a good party theme. I might steal that idea. :)
