Happy 2017! I had planned on posting before this point, but the past two weeks really threw a lot my way - which is one of the reasons why Mermaidens is so invaluable to me. It is incredibly cathartic to synthesize everything I'm loving at that moment into photo series - and this was something that had been swirling around in my head for a while!
Last year one of my most favorite posts I did was featuring a huge moon - so I wanted to do a sequel in a way and play with a moon motif. Inspiration struck via a Christian Dior runway show circa Spring 2011 and from a dress by one of my all time favorite designers, Samantha Pleet! This exquisite little silk number reminds me of clouds, moons, and pierrot. I love the dainty collar, scallops, and of course, the two tone details!
