(vintage silk dress, Jeffrey Campbell boots, Isharya earrings)
This weekend when I visited home, my mother cleaned out her closet and tossed a bunch of her old clothes onto the floor. I saw a patch of bright yellow somewhere in the middle of the heap and pounced on it, salvaging this beautiful yellow silk dress she had worn decades ago. Originally a design from Paris, the dress was imported to Hong Kong and sold at a boutique there, where my mother bought it long before I was even born.
Though the dress was a bit loose on me, I immediately slipped it on, jammed my feet into my new boots, and pranced around in my spectacular find! I love the sunshine yellow color and floral pattern down the front, and the more I inspect this piece, the more I adore its many pretty details--the voluminous bell sleeves, drop waist, crinkled silk fabric, the white silk underskirt. The only thing that makes it better is having it passed down from my mother and knowing she once loved it as much as I do now.
