as with so many other folks out there, i have a couple of favorite pieces that have survived my many moves and travels across the world. the above dress is one of those pieces.
i bought that dress in nurnberg, germany back in the early 2000s at the united colors of benetton. i can’t say exactly why i love it in the way i do. sure, the length is perfect. i love the red floral print. the cap sleeves are flattering. it hangs well. but it’s more than the sum of its parts.
those shoes were also comfortable; a rarity for heels. i wore them until they literally fell apart, and when the shoe repair man told me they couldn’t be saved, it was an unfortunate turn. i’d worn them with everything, and for more years than any other pair of shoes i’d owned. it’s almost funny that i can’t even recall what brand they were.
it was this image, taken in the summer of 2006, that ignited my passion to create this style blog. i still have, and love, this dress.
i hope to bring some of my style to this corner of the internet in hopes that i can inspire someone, as i have been inspired by others.
welcome to this journey, my friends!
