i became obsessed with this dress when i first saw it online. thankfully, my lovely laura lives near the pixie market store in manhattan, so i bought it when i was there for fashion week. the neckline is flattering even if it is a white shift dress. (why guys hate shift dresses, i'll never understand.)

as someone who was raised to know catholicism and studied art history, i've always had an obsession with christian iconography - so it was easy for me to be drawn to this dress. something is always better when it can tell a story, and everything in christianity has symbolism behind it. (i mean, have you seen how long the bible is?)

Lovely outfit and very chic bun, I have very long hair and I can't pull it off unfortunately! Btw, your skin looks flawless, could you tell me which foundation you use?
