I picked up this lovely little frock at a Megan Huntz studio sale last spring. Megan is an Atlanta girl, although until recently she has been living abroad.
When I read about Megan's process - sourcing gorgeous fabrics from some secret wharehouse in Italy and hand dying her dresses by the sea in Spain, well I had to have one.
I adore garment dyed pieces, they feel special and intentional- not generic and mass produced.
I have worn my pretty dress several times and even pulled it out at Bonaroo. The gorgeous ombre silk and the flirty curved hem makes it feel playful and fun. It is most beautiful when the wind catches the skirt sending the color rippling into soft little waves.
For fall the leather toughens it up a bit. When cold weather arrives, my plan is- black tights, my cream wool jacket and some long layered brass necklaces. I think I might even have the perfect pair of peep toe wedges. I love an open toe shoe with a tight in the winter.
For now I'm still totally obsessed with my blue suede booties. They literally go with everything and they make old stuff new again. Isn't that the best?!
