Prick-me-Dainty derives from an old 16th Century word that means to dress in ones finery. The first Dandies were referred to by this name, and that is what vintage dressing portrays to me. It's not about belonging to a clique or a particular niche, it's about finding something you love, putting your own little twist on it, dressing up and above all, having fun with it and growing your own unique style.

Other things I like: The sound of rain, blossom twirling on the wind, bright lights twinkling in the dark, good manners, the sun reflected on water, curious people, wild flowers, the melancholy beauty of the cello, sunsets, freedom, fairness and fantasy.

I hope you find something you love.
I hope you find the unique you.
