HELLO.

Welcome to my blog // art project about the mix of things and places that make me smile.  I hope you have a nice stay!

Enya's Dress

Enya's Dress

Street style Vintage Dress

Sometimes I see someone wearing something that makes me smile.  It can be the way they wear their hair, cool earrings (those Dior tribal studs!) or something unfussy and pretty worn in a laissez-faire manner.

A recent experience happened when I saw Enya in this vintage cotton dress.  Being on the shy side, I don't usually stop people and ask to take their photos.  I admire those photographers who do that quite naturally. In this case, I had the idea to have my gifted friend make a sewing pattern so we could have our own version so I NEEDED a photo.  Enya was very kind to oblige my out of the blue request and even showed me multiple versions of how she wears it - knotted in front, in back, buttoned up or low, etc. Plus, I really liked her motorcycle boots too.  Finding a classic simple silhouetted cotton day dress alluded me this summer but with this photo in hand and my friends' skills, hopefully I'll have one ready for Fall.
