You do Grace Sullivan sooo dang well!!! Love all that jewellery too, especially the 1920's one.

Your twirly skirt is in the post tho I suspect it may take a little longer than normal to get to you given all the public holidays!

Yes, yess!! VERY Grace Sullivan! I love it with the green gloves too. Might your big case be a camera or lens case??

Oh I love that dress! Beautiful. And one of those earring sets is to die for. I mean they're all lovely pieces but the earrings on the right, the two gold flowers with a yellowstone centre.....fabulous. You were very spoilt there. :)
