Description

Inspiration for this dress came from my mom, she’s 90 today. A woman who grew up in NYC in the depression, she has maintained her love of life, this earth and God… She believes that you will find God throughout the world in all you meet and see if you just look. so, Thoreau’s quote ‘Heaven is under your feet as well as over your head’ seems fitting. This dress and the hat exemplify the look of the 40’s to me, style was simple, the body was the perfect form to show off the beautiful material and the hat, brought smiles :)
