Moth wings and magic stones

Gauzy, airy white dress like this one remind me of the thin delicate wings of a moth floating around a porch light. There's also my moonstone earrings from Free People that have a magical rainbow glow inside of them.
The outfit overall reminds me of Flora Greysteel from Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. The empire waist reminisce of the 19th century, the beaded bracelet is from Venice, Italy. Flora was an independent, adventurous woman and my denim shirt might be something she would throw on to venture out into a violent storm to meet Mr. Strange if he were surrounded in darkness.
Today there was magic in my closet and on my mind.
Zara dress, Uniqlo denim shirt, Saltwater sandals, glass beads from Venice, Free People earrings

  15. The outfit is really pretty and the dress itself is beautiful. I can definitely see why there would be magic in your outfit. Even though I am not familiar with the character you mentioned, it was really cool to read how every part of your outfit reminded you of something, it was like each piece had a story behind it. That´s really cool.
