Sailing to Byzantium

Sailor dress. Motif 56 belt. Vintage lace scarf. Vintage mosaic bracelet. Vintage costume pearl ring. Hue lurex tights. Chanel ballerinas.
"I started Early - Took my Dog - / & visited the Sea - / The Mermaids in the Basement / Came out to look at me" - Emily Dickinson, I started Early - Took my Dog
As Three Days of Rain sprinkled NYC, I ran away on a rainbow in my sailor frock - more of an hommage to Shirley Temple on the Good Ship Lollipop than screen siren Sophia Loren in Houseboat. This dress is piped in blue (along its hem, pockets & back flap) to match the bow & although it plunges into a deep v-neck, I cozied up to my mom’s wedding veil (reborn as a scarf). A red belt + gothic gold tights = French Disco Dancing Queen.
