sicilian dress


 

  



dress - self made

when i first saw pattern for this dress
back in march issue of  burda 2009
i immediately thought that it looks
a - slightly like a 30's dress and
b - kind of sicilian
..
not that i have ever been to italy
let alone sicily,
so i don't really know what sicilian ladies wear
and still, it looked sicilian to me
and it still does, five years later
..
ideal backdrop for my sicilian dress
would be a cobblestone street
in golden hour
and yes, we do have a few of nice looking
cobblestone streets in belgrade
but morning golden hour is kind of too early in a day for me
while evening golden hour tend to be crowded in any of those streets
 and i prefer doing my tripod shooting routine in private
..
so.. i took my photos at high noon
using my usual backdrop of neighbourhood ruin..
i'll totally understand if you don't get my sicilian vibe

  4. The low neckline and the sleeves are so nice! I think this kind of sleeves has name but I always forgot it... anyway, very pretty and spring-like!
