Lily of the Valley

3.1 Phillip Lim resort 2009 collection, look #14
3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Vintage aiguillette belt, Amy NY headpiece, heart necklace, cameo ring & Furla bag. Poison ring. Chanel clogs.
"Go ask Alice, I think she'll know / When logic & proportion have fallen sloppy dead / & the white knight is talking backwards / & the red queen's off with her head / Remember what the dormouse said" - Jefferson Airplane, White Rabbit
I always channel Alice in Wonderland to some extent: she's my favorite blonde in a hairbow, encountering adventure en route home. Blue dresses are Alice's sartorial signature, but I'm partial to white ones... This linen frock debuted as part of Phillip Lim's resort 2009 collection; its netted bodice & faux wrap skirt make me feel like a tall glass of water on a hot summer day. My first Furla: paisley tapestry + caramel leather = 19th century carpet bag; it's actually vintage circa 1970, but I discovered it in the basement of an estate sale in northwestern CT.
