Lavender Fields

Vintage lace blouse. Hanes top. Joie leather skirt. Charm necklace. Vintage woven cuff. Chanel ballerinas.
This lavender lace blouse has been seducing hearts since the 1960s: sheer material bells from its sleeves, swoops across the bust & entwines my neck. I originally layered a silk camisole under it, but this wife-beater & leather skirt complement sweet with tough love better. Charms only have magical powers if they're collected individually over time & mean something to the wearer... An example par excellence - this necklace imparts luck on every outing: an aquamarine ringed in diamonds (my birthstone - a present for one of my earliest birthdays), a seashell (collected from a memorable beach vacation in Boca Raton, FL), a vintage gold pendant (my grandmother bought it in Israel) & a pink tourmaline (a souvenir from my sister's trip to Paris).
