miu miu

Miu Miu dress, Pura Lopez pumps

Emiliano and I celebrated a very special day/evening together about a month ago, which meant I got to bring out a special dress for the first time since purchasing it in Italy about the same amount of time ago. We took these photos in my mother's peony garden, which is significant not only because they're my favourite flower, but also for the sentiment of this day.

I finally managed to debut this Louis Vuitton skirt (vintage from Milan) that I purchased in 2009. Somehow it fits now - both literally, as I've shrunk a size or two, and stylistically with the new square prints that have been popping up in current Vuitton pieces. It's no secret that fashion is cyclical, yet I always feel the same high level of surprise when something from the past is suddenly so relevant. There is satisfaction in rediscovery.


back in BC

Byblos denim onesie, Emilio Pucci shoes 

Surprise! I'm back in Victoria. The city has undergone many changes in the nearly 2 years spent away: mall complexes have been built, favourite restaurants have expanded, favourite shops have renovated and revamped their interiors. It's a strange sensation to come back to your home city and suddenly feel "foreign", but it is exciting to rediscover the area and to try to remember to speak English to everyone when out and about. Yesterday evening I had to fight the now-reflex of ordering our sushi dinner in Italian. Baby steps.

I wanted to channel a kind of Lana del Rey (outfit - not hair or makeup) vibe and this Byblos onesie (vintage from Italy) with it's Harley Davidson-esq motifs and "live free, ride free, etc" written all over it seemed fitting with a pair of girly pumps. All I need now is a palm tree and a grungy motel pinball machine.
