Happy Outfit: Little Red Riding Hood

Fairytales, myths, legends, and well, stories have always been one of my biggest inspirations. I have read so many pages that you could fill a whole house with them. I live for stories and my favorite subjects to paint are myths and legends as well. I like to incorporate a bit of storytelling in my outfits too!

I made a flatlay picture for a contest on Facebook a couple of months ago but I still wanted a picture of me wearing it.. So when I heard about another contest, with the theme 'out and about', this was my chance!
This is the original flatlay:

And this is my recreation! I asked my boyfriend to take a picture of me. I changed the hat because I found the other to have a better fitting colour (it's a slightly more brownish red). I wanted to make the picture cute but add a little bit of sassiness :) The contest is currently closed and the winners are announced tomorrow! I'm so curious!

Breakdown of the outfit:
The hat is vintage (the hat on the flatlay is vintage too!). The dress is by Black Milk Clothing and the petticoat is vintage as well. The shoes are LE Wizard of Oz collection by Harrods (I bought them off a friend last year), and the blouse is a hand-me-down from my mom. I believe she bought it in Italy somewhere. The knife was gifted to me years ago by my aunt and the basket is from a thrift shop.
The wig is by Gothic Lolita Wigs.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to bring some cookies to granny!
