all in the details

















(photos by the adorable Isla!)

dress  vintage from the vintage fashion expo
cardigan  vintage
belt  j. crew
shoes  thrifted

My favorite thing to wear will always be a pretty white dress, especially one with such amazing and intricate details as this vintage frock. The pleating, the adorable pink bow, the rows of tiny buttons at the sleeve cuff... so much dreaminess! And it's just the perfect thing to spin around in before heading off to work. This is pretty much how all my photo shoots go down now: a few shots of me looking somewhat calm and serious, and then a whole bunch more where I'm smiling like a goon and jumping around. Because being serious is just no fun at all!
