A very special dress

Before I embarked on the shoe challenge (which began today) I wanted to wear this vintage Carolina Herrera dress that came in the mail this week with my Balenciaga ankle boots-photographed in front of the wreckage of my sisters bathroom (installing new counters)


This dress makes me feel like a princess!

  45. Thank you so much Tim. I really do appreciate your feedback. I’m still struggling with the technology but I wish everyone all luck with this competition. I’ve been pinned down with a sick grandchild and today a very sick daughter – both with gastric flu which afflicts us all at this time of year – so this is the first moment I’ve had to get to the computer.

  46. Wow! I just loved your creativity and wish I could have a work like yours. :D I just loooove shoes, like you.
