A Pocketful of Posies

Dress is from Lady V London (made in London), petticoat is from Ebay, bag is from Italy, shoes are from Yeswalker, socks from Tutuanna.

The sweetest little old lady came up to me and hugged me on the bus while I was wearing this dress, and I think that's the best compliment I could have gotten. When I'm a (hopefully) cute old lady, someone please remind me to hug random well-dressed people - it's basically the nicest thing ever.

New Scientist recently created an interactive map of all the "Earth-like" planets in our galaxy. These are "habitable" planets - planets that may not be exactly like Earth but could probably host life. Extrapolating from a small section of sky that Kepler has been searching for the past four years, New Scientist has estimated that there are 15 to 30 billion Earth-like planets in the Milky Way alone. See the map here. And you can also read my posts about the potential for alien life existing in our own solar system here.

Have a great day,


  1. I love your dress, with the white frilly lace underneath and the white socks with the shoes! Your look absolutely adorable!
    And that is adorable, it's the nicest feeling to receive compliments from people, its even nicer seeing people's happy faces when you give them out too :3

  2. Not gonna lie, I think I'd be a bit freaked out if a stranger hugged me on the bus haha!


    1. Well, it was okay because she was just this teeny tiny old lady with the wryest smile. I couldn't not let her hug me haha.
