Mandy Coon 'Ginny' Bunny bag & vintage jewelry throughout.
RUBY: Red Valentino dress. Madewell necklace. / Carven dress. Vintage sunglasses.
Valentino bow frock was a birthday present: I desired it so much but didn't tell anyone & still got it, which made me happier than O'Henry's Gift of the Magi. Carven dress is retail ready version from designer Guillaume Henry's spring 2012 runway: a showstopper in solid lace (runway original has cutout midsection).
Barbara Hulanicki for Topshop dress. / Madewell 'Dolores' dress & necklace. Cutler & Gross sunglasses.
Barbara Hulanicki leopard paisley flippy frock bought from British bird who knows the value of vintage print. Fashion unites people: this lovely lady is so sweet, I'm sending her good karmic vibes forevermore. Ms. Hulanicki's 1960-70s heyday was as a fashion designer/illustrator & founder of Biba (the best shop & an incubator for artists). Serious picnickers: take a refreshing breath of black & white palette in a gingham dress.
SEAFOAM MERMAID: Nanette Lepore dress.
Pastel pastoral: floral eyelet frock sprinkled with sugared almond stones is a delicate dance with lady of the lake. Red to green & black between... Red (or coral) dresses don't make me particularly powerful or womanly - the opposite: they make me feel like a little girl in a party dress. Perpetually seeking Best Costume prize.
