a dress story

when i was 18
my mother's friend, lusia,
from Milan, gave me the first
dress she ever made.

an original
liberty print.

luisa is now a big
designer so it means
a lot to be the sole owner
of this incredible piece.

although, i've never worn it.
maybe because I was saving
it for an occasion like this.

I like to stick my hands
in its deep pockets

so bohemian

ps: I would share more pics
but I know some of you
will be at the wedding!
