Leaves of Lace

3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Vintage elephant necklace (worn as belt) & charm bracelets. Médecine Douce necklace (worn as headband). Chanel sandals.
"She will start from her slumber / When gusts shake the door; / She will hear the winds howling, / Will hear the waves roar. / We shall see, while above us / The waves roar & whirl, / A ceiling of amber, / A pavement of pearl" - Matthew Arnold, The Forsaken Merman
A faux necklace (silver chain, navy rope & pearls) embellishes my frock but couldn't fulfill my jewelry needs alone; I also wore an elephant necklace around my waist, a tuxedo locket in my hair & a pair of charm bracelets. Some black lace is fit only for the boudoir, but the light of day is meant to shine on this dress: dark lacy leaves of ivy crawling across a nude slip. Phillip Lim's summer 2010 collection also carried the above design in white & similar stark lace frocks (sans necklaces) were part of spring 2010.


  1. What a beautiful dress! I love the texture (from a virtual 2 dimensional point of view)!
