Christmas day was pretty stressful for me, and that's a whole other story for another day (if I ever decide to elaborate). After leaving a particularly stressful visit, an uplifting moment came in the form of a house that I didn't remember seeing before. It was apparently a new build on an old plot of land in the middle of nowhere, and it was glorious. Ranch style, white, with a big front porch and detached garage. It was a dreamy little country home. Though I wouldn't want to live in that specific town, the idea of floating around that space in long dresses and messy hair, something I thought was only in my dreams or another state, has been calling to me, and maybe, hopefully, I'll find that somewhere else some day.
My point is that this collection is everything I could ask for in a Pre-Fall collection, or any collection for that matter. The dresses seem to sway in still photos, and they're in cuts I've started collecting in my own wardrobe. The boots reassure me on my own recent boot purchase (watch this space), though I now feel like I need a much taller pair. The hats, the hats, are wonderful. I've been meaning to add a beret to my own collection, and the last photo has convinced me to try to balance a bunch of flowers on my wide-brimmed pieces. The suit look in the first photo would be perfect for days I'm feeling a bit more masculine, so the variety is a plus. This collection is a dream feeding a dream. I can spend the rest of my day zoning off about wearing these looks in my own dreamy, make-believe space.
Thank you Lorenzo Serafini.
