Shoes: Zara (old)
Gloves: Vintage (my grandmother’s)
I haven’t been very consistent with posting, but blame it on the weather, the photographer, everyone but me lol!
But I had to do a blog post about this dress, because I fell in love with it and also because I’m sooooo happy with this photoshoot. We really found the ideal background for it….
So, Lady Vintage London, which is a UK company that makes vintage inspired garments, all manufactured in the heart of London, sent me this lovely dress with a beautiful print of hummingbirds and flowers (and of course I gladly accepted!).
The fabric is soft with a nice sheen to it and the fit is as I like a swing dress to be; fitted above the waist and flared below it. I’m wearing it with a petticoat for a bit more volume. The colors of the dress are so pretty and vibrant. Doesn’t it look wonderful under the Cretan sun?!
As you guys know, I’m in Crete for the summer and I’m trying to make the most of it and capture as much of the beautiful scenery as I can. So my photographer and I decided to shoot in Tampakaria area. It’s a very small area, but very picturesque. Tanneries used to operate here from mid 19th century, but now they have closed down and you can see the old abandoned buildings and some of the equipment they used back then. A few of the buildings have been restored for hotels and restaurants and some have been renovated and are privately owned.
Call me crazy, but I love abandoned buildings because the history behind them fascinates me! What do you think?!
