Charlie. The designer is Jack which is apparently a line by BB Dakota. Or maybe it's all just BB Dakota, I'm not going to lie I'm a bit confused by that. But either way, it's a beautiful dress and I've surprisingly got a lot of wear out of it even though it's a lacy drop waisted dress. I know that you are never supposed to wear drop waisted dresses unless you're really tall or something, but I love them to death, and I really don't care, I wear them all the time even though they are definitely not flattering.
Mink Pink that I picked up at Bicyclette a few weeks ago. I went there after work one day just absolutely determined to buy something (I know that's not a healthy state of mind, but you may know the feeling) and I tried on a bunch of stuff but nothing really grabbed me until this girl walked out of the change room wearing this dress. I just thought it was perfect, like Marie Antoinette meets ballerina (two of my favourite things) so I quickly asked the sales lady/owner if she had any more of them and she said that it was the last one, but that I should "wait it out." I then proceded to putter around for 15 minutes while the girl hemmed and hawed over which dress to buy, it was painful. She didn't get it though, so as soon as she went to the till to purchase another dress I went into her change room, picked up the dress, tried on the dress, and bought the dress. It was all very exciting.

Omar Khayyam (1048–1131), who was a poet, astronomer, and mathematician, wrote many of the poems in this collection. This particular publication, which is from 1952, is illustrated by Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) but I think the illustrations might be from earlier. I just can't say enough how much I love illustrations from this time period. We're talking about Arthur Rackham, Kay Nielsen, and Walter Crane, all the greats!
Oh, and since I really like answering all your lovely comments, and I didn't really know how to in a way that you would actually be able to read them I've decided to take a note from Anabela's lovely blog, Fieldguided. Starting now I will answer your comments on the bottom of the following post.
Okay here goes with the replies:
Elyse: Thank you so much, I always strive to get that grainy look with everything that I do : )
BaronessVonVintage: I am always happy to show you my favourite spots in Toronto, this one is Riverdale Farm!
Roz: I'm not sure what you'll find when you google Canada Day, it's quite a modest celebration, but that's how we are here.
Bri: Thank you! I'm always happy to look like a doll (or like my doll that I got from my birthday)
Jazzy E: That is very sweet, thank you!
Hila: You are the least ignorant person I know! and I don't really know you ; )
danniekate: Oh thank you, I always think that clothes are nothing without an atmosphere
Hannah: I'm glad that you are more neglectful of your diana than I am, you're making me look good.
Amy: It's nice to meet you too. Oh dear, I'm glad you like the poses, I definitely have a difficult time with them. I just take so many photos that some of them usually turn out.
