HANDOVER OF POWER

A stunning vintage Yolanda dress from the sixties. I admire the refinement of the embellished collar but I admire way it falls and flows perfectly. The coral-beset lady is older than me but it would make any young woman pale in comparison given its holding (so imagine how pale this 42-year-old young woman looks).

I am always infinitely touched by ancient clothes, testimonies of passed times. Yes, I am always extremely touched by these silent witnesses, which have already been emotionally invested in by women who lived before me and whose life paths I often hazard guesses about. I like the idea of passing things on and I truly hope that someday this dress will be given to one of my granddaughters or grandnieces (and as it is given perhaps someone will tell them about that cray-cray lawyer who had a fashion blog – I bet it will be quite something).
