the dress











the dress - self made

feeling obsessed with this dress!
never before i've made anything that feels so much like me
it's loud and colorful and over the top.. and yet simple
not everybody's favorite, for sure
but if you stick long enough
you'll see the other side
the wild 'back' side
one that's more appealing..
but you have to look for it
..
it's also my 'russian' dress
as i first called it
cause the fabric reminded me of those
traditional russian scarfs
and those scarfs reminded me of russian fairy tales 
that i loved reading when i was a kid
..
i don't like to pose for the pictures
but, wearing this dress
i enjoyed it (hence the picture overload)
the fact that nikola was with me to took them helped a lot
but it wasn't only that
it was the dress too, that helped me feel magical
