living with the lights off.



wilt sweater, twopaw necklace, boutique nine heels.




photos by barbara vidal.

Everything about the sweater drew me in and I knew I had to make it mine. Considered it in white too but...I just can't avoid black clothing. Or shoes. The heels are a year round favorite (which is starting to show in the heel) but I'll be sticking by these for as long as I can. As for the necklace...it's old and I haven't worn it as often as I'd like to, but it's a favorite piece of mine.
And Barbara Vidal...I came across her work a while ago and was captivated immediately, especially by the dreamy yet mysterious quality of these particular photos. They make me want to pull on a sheer, flowing dress, run barefoot through some beautiful, abandoned palace gardens, and forget everything.
If only.

Everything is gorgeous here; so it's difficult to fall in love with one single piece. But the flowing dress is mysterious, sensuous, sexy and erotic in a hidden way. XX
