Ring Around the Rosey

See by Chloe dress. Vintage costume bottle & stone necklaces. Vintage costume peridot & two braided bangles. Vintage costume diamond & Les Néréids crystal (a souvenir from my trip to Paris) bracelets. Loeffler Randall sandals. Vintage sunglasses.
This dress looks like separates, but I just pull it on & go - an essential quality on bleary-eyed work-mornings. I first noticed this dress when I was rushing through Bergdorf one day; later on I saw it featured in a magazine, which I took to be a sign I was meant to have it. I immediately called the store to have the dress shipped. I scavenged most of the jewelry in CT.
These sunglasses were my mom's. There's a photograph of her with my sister & me as children, standing on the Park Ave island near my family's apartment after a winter-storm. The three of us are bundled up against the cold in ubiquitous knee-high snowboots: my mom in these sunglasses & a camel shearling coat, my sister & me in light pink & magenta snowsuits respectively. My mom evokes an easy glamour - a look I've tried to cultivate ever since.
