Wind And Birds Have Sowed

This is one of those outfits I couldn't really see myself wearing if I didn't live so close to nature. It's not that crowded city streets would would make me too shy to creatively express myself through whimsical headbands (although it probably would be a factor); it's just that these clothes belong here. This is how I picture a modern dryad dressing after becoming domesticated to the point of living in a cabin, but not abandoning her true home in the woods (rather like a selkie who has had her seal skin stolen but never loses a longing for the sea). While the palette and heavy brocade might be better suited for autumn, it still matches the pine needle bedding and bare tree branches only just beginning to show spring growth--I hadn't intended to match the woods so perfectly, but I think our surroundings do influence us so much.

I love this outfit -- and I get what you mean. There are some outfits that I have that only make sense in my small town.

Does the zipper of the dress go all the way to the hemline? That's kind of cool.

I love this dress! It's very magical. These pictures are totally giving me fairy tale vibes...like if you kept walking there might be a creepy cottage made of candy or something.

I'd actually be all over wearing this dress in a big city. Maybe not the headband, but swap out for a black belt and/or shoes and it'd be perfect for the city.

I love how you were inspired by Dryads and Selkies. It is quite a whimsical ensemble! I especially love the print and the cut of the dress.

Kristian said...

I do like this outfit, but agree with what you said about it having a place. It just seems to belong to a certain way of living....
