Asos star print bralette (sold out); The Complete works of William Shakespeare.

Your eyes are lode-stars; and your tongue’s sweet air

The rest I’d give to be to you translated.
O, teach me how you look, and with what art
You sway the motion of Demetrius’ heart.”

A Mid Summer’s Night Dream, William Shakespeare.

…And so let’s wear something laden with stars and carry this Shakespearean dream with us all day…
