When I was a wee urchin I wanted to be a Prima Ballerina when I grew up. Now that I'm grown up I want to be a Vampishly Sexy Woman of Mystery. In this dress I could be both*:
I love the embroidery on the skirt. And that red! Va-va-voom! The Nutcracker dress is £50 from FairyGothMother (although it's currently sold out).
* If I was to be totally honest my chances of being either a Prima Ballerina or a Vampishly Sexy Woman of Mystery are precisely nil. I could never be a Prima Ballerina because I'm a complete klutz with no sense of rhythm and as much grace as a medium sized rock. I'll never be a Vampishly Sexy Woman of Mystery because, well, same reasons actually.
