Lady in brown

The chosen title was by chance. But due to a simply search I discovered a wonderful legend behind "Lady in Brown", without any connection to my reality, and because the location of the photos meets the story I decided to share it with you.
The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall was a ghost which reportedly haunts Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England. She became one of the most famous haunting in Great Britain when photographers from Country Life magazine  claimed to have captured its image. Brown Lady  is so named because of the brown brocade dress it is claimed she wears. 

According to legend, Brown Lady of Raynham Hall is the ghost of Lady Dorothy Walpole. She was the second wife of Charles Townshend, who was known for his violent temper. The story goes that when Townshend discovered that his wife committed adultery with Lord Wharton, he punished her by locking her in a room of the family home, Raynham Hall. She remained at Raynham Hall until her death caused by smallpox.
And after this journey in the novel world, we are back to nowadays and more precise to the outfit I worn today. The animal print dress is another "masterpiece" of mine and when it comes to animal print I like to keep it simple (as I mentioned in another post in which I presented in more detail a few "rules" of wearing it, and you can read that here  ) this time also I chose to go on the same palette of colors without risking too much. The result appreciate it yourself!
Hug you all with love!

Alegerea titlului a fost o pura intamplare. Insa la o simpla cautare am descoperit minunata legenda din spatele "Doamnei in maro", fara nicio legatura cu realitatea mea, si pentru ca si locatia din fotografii vine in intampinarea povestii am decis sa v-o impartasesc si voua. 
"Doamna in Maro" din Raynham Hall este o fantoma, care se spune ca a bantuit Raynham Hall din Norfolk, Anglia. A devenit una dintre cele mai renumite bantuitoare din Marea Britanie atunci cand fotografii revistei Country Life pretindeau ca au capturat imaginea ei. "Doamna Brown" este numita astfel din cauza rochiei din brocart maro pe care se pretindea ca o purta.
Potrivit legendei, "Doamna Brown din Raynham Hall" este fantoma lui Lady Dorothy Walpole. Ea a fost a doua sotie a lui Charles Townshend, care era renumit pentru temperamentul sau violent. Povestea spune ca, atunci cand Townshend a descoperit ca sotia lui a comis adulter cu Lord Wharton, el a pedepsit-o prin incuierea ei in una din camerele casei familiei, Raynham Hall. Ea a ramas la Raynham Hall pana la moartea ei cauzata de variola.
Si dupa acest periplu in lumea povestilor revenim in zilele noastre si mai exact la tinuta purtata de mine azi. Rochia animal print este o alta "capodopera" de a mea si pentru ca atunci cand vine vorba de animal print I like to keep it simple (dupa cum am mai mentionat intr-o alta postare in care am prezentat mai pe larg cateva "reguli" de purtare si pe care puteti sa o cititi aici ) si de aceasta data am ales sa merg pe aceeasi paleta de nuante fara a risca prea mult. Rezultatul va invit sa-l apreciati singuri!
Va imbratisez cu drag!
