DRESS: c/o Samantha Pleet *

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!


  1. You are really cute in this Arlequin dress °^°

  2. This is so gorgeous on you! Not many people could pull off this look, but you look stunning.

    Hope you're doing well. Happy new year!!

  4. ADORE these images & that dress is so magical on you...

  5. So lovely and beautiful. The look is dreamy!
    Much love,

  6. That third photo is gorgeous, it looks so dreamy! But you ALWAYS look totally dreamy.

  7. I love these and I love how you always put so much work into your photos! I've always loved those intentionally blurry Lula kind of photos but have always felt like mine would look like they were just blurry instead of beautiful, haha. you 100% succeeded though and that's probably my favourite shot! :)

  8. Your photos never fail to amaze me! I love how you used the moon in these ones ♥
