3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Vintage corset belt. Beaded circlet. Vintage cameo bracelet. Tintoretta tights. Delman slingbacks with vintage shoe-clips.
"I held a jewel in my fingers / & went to sleep / The day was warm, & winds were prosy / I said, 'Twill keep' " - Emily Dickinson, I Held A Jewel
A dress with attached jewelry is the ultimate in slip-on-&-run; this neckline sparkles with a beaded grosgrain ribbon. I belted a fabric corset over my frock's casual t-shirt material; it's printed with black/white flowers & has a back keyhole detail. Two of my favorite birthday presents: a pair of shoe-clips (rhinestone bows glamorize a pair of slingbacks otherwise ready for retirement) & a quad-strand pearl cameo bracelet (colored pearls flank a crystal with a floating cameo).
