Bottled Poetry

It is quite nice to return home to friends, family...and packages in the mail! I do think packages in the mail are one of life's small pleasures. If they're from loved ones then it means you were thought of. Even if it is items you've purchased, they feel like presents when they come all packed up for you to unwrap. When I got back from Italya little brown box from Luxxor was waiting for me with this stunning vintage bottle necklace inside. The lid on the flask is functioning so now I'm trying to decide what to place inside the bottle--a slip of paper with some of my favorite poetry or perhaps a handful of sand from my favorite beach? For now it hangs empty on it's chain; just a pretty shell of vapid beauty until I find some greater purpose to put it to. The bright colors and unique design inspired a simple, flowy outfit. I'm quite in love with the ease of this dress. I think I need more airy, light layers this summers--especially if our weather continues to be sweltering!

  4. That vintage bottle necklace is beautiful! I would have such a hard time trying to decide what to put in it, too.

    And, I echo the other commenters in surprise that your dress is from H&M. It looks so much more expensive and vintage! In any case, it's just lovely on you.

    Could you post a close-up of your bag sometime? I can only see the front of it from your first pic and it looks really cool and pretty.

  26. Love the dress - but what do you wear underneath to protect your modesty? I'm looking for pretty slips at the moment but can't find any that aren't all polyester and static.

  29. @northwest is best, honestly I'm wearing regular undies with this dress--no slip. It really isn't sheer b/c there are several layers. I only wear slips when I'm wearing dressed with tights, or sheer dresses & then I usually wear vintage slips.

  30. Funny - I have a vintage ring very similar to your necklace. Makes me wonder if they were perhaps designed by the same person or some type of set at one point. I love how vintage can have such a mysterious history behind it...

  31. What a perfect, white summer dress! You look beautiful.

  32. I bought this dress a couple of months ago without trying it on in store, but no matter how hard I tried to make it work it just didn't fit me right and I returned it. Seeing it on you makes me super jealous - you look great!
