Recipe: Dreamy Dress

This dress almost perfectly achieves my ideal summery aesthetic. It’s like air, and evokes a very specific moment in vintage time. I love the tiny pleating and ultra neutral palette, which allows me infinite freedom with accessories. I dug it out of a 10-pound rack in the basement of a vintage shop on Brick Lane, and I never looked back.

Someone told me once that my snake ring looks like it possesses magical powers. That’s because it does.

I like to twirl; this dress is absolutely twirl-worthy.
