The Look: Sherlock Holmes + Clouds

Fun Fact: Caillianne and I painted these clouds on the trench for Chloe's Surrealist birthday costume party last year! And ever since then...I'm kinda of obsessed with wearing it! This is the hat I got last weekend at the Aberfoyle flea market and the seller said it's over sixty years old!Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to all the Canucks!!! Pin It Now!

This is all too fantastic for words! That coat is super cute. A surrealist themed party sounds right up my alley. Although if I threw one, knowing some of my friends, they probably wouldn't have a clue what I was on about haha.

Oh god girls you've done it again! I want to get the fabric paints out RIGHT NOW! I love the shade of blue you chose for clouds - they really pop off the beige trench. Utterly, utterly gorgeous with that insanely amazing hat - WOW!!!!! Thanks so much for all your lovely comments:) xoxoxo

Surrealist birthday? oh wow that sounds like a brilliant theme! The jacket is superb with the painted clouds... never thought it was a diy! I visited the Salvador Dali Institute in spain a few years back and it was out of this world. Gold croissants adorn the walls, and huge eggs along the wall tops... so many incredible and trippy pieces in there, and a special jewellrey vault- you would love it!! xx Katie.
