UPDATE

Because it’s summer and I’m back home on holiday, I haven’t had much time to spend on maintaining this blog, and for that I am really sorry. My job, family, friends and most of all my boyfriend is taking up all the time I have - which is great! On Saturday I’m leaving for London, thereafter France. My love and me are going to spend a few weeks travelling the coast of France, starting with Charbourg and down, hopefully getting all the way to Nice! It will be a wonderful adventure and I cannot wait!^^

So I’m really sorry for the lack of updates and posting, but when August is drawing near its end, I will be back for intensive blogging/posting again! So this blog is NOT dead! It’s still up and running!

Where can one buy such a beautiful dress such as Constance's dress from The Three Musketeers?

I really don’t know. It’s a 17th century period dress (kinda), so you should try searching for it on sites as eBay and Etsy.
