Gal De Gaul
The other day I was playing at Britishness. Now I should feel French, because of the phrases scrawled on this dress. At some point I'll sit down with Google Translate and find out what messages are emblazoned upon me... actually I will never do that, because I'm much too lazy and not quite curious enough. I think it's just garden stuff. But I did watch [most of] this video about French stereotypes:
Moving on... I thrifted my dress during the cold, flowerless months. Wearing it was enjoyable despite the chilly weather, but a pastel pinafore is especially satisfying when the whole world is blooming. Every season is my favorite while it's happening, but gosh is this one ever great! My dress pairs so well with spring: the lavender/periwinkle color, floral pattern, and lightweight fabric are all perfect. I layered a black shirt underneath for the sake of contrast, and chose my bright berry-leaning lipstick because I didn't want to wear any other makeup. (Red lipstick is sufficient unto itself.) Dark footwear maintained vertical visual balance.
Do you want a closer look at my socks? On the off chance that you do: I posted a snapshot on Instagram because I'm a dork who is obsessed with how much better the camera is on my new phone. More on that l8r, g8rs.
