Walking through the burning cathedral

This dress originally belonged to the short tight skirt/ baggy top clan of dresses that were swamping the high streets a few years back. My excuse for purchasing it was its scope for ‘altention’ – here, I wore it pulled down to the knees to create the longer length and brought in the waist with a ribbon. I can’t say I’m a fan of fitted upper and lower form, so the addition of the cape (worn back to front) was a necessity to break up the lean silhouette. I think I injured my shoe on the pile of bricks, damn my bravado.
