Pavlovsk- At last! At long last I had a photoshoot in this gorgeous magical dress, that I bought at a vintage online shop of a lovely friend in Dublin, called Pretty Bones Jefferson. It is a 70s dress probably made tribute to the fashion of the late 19th century, when women didn’t have to show all their skin to be considered beautiful.
As you know I spent my summer vacation in the amazing Saint Petersburg, Russia, taking in all the architecture, all the rich history of this stunning city. It was home to great poets, artists and inventors, so it comes as no surprise that the minute you step outside you feel that culture hanging in the air and your mind wants to discover and absorb all the beauty that is around!
For this dress, I chose a special place- the Pavlovsk garden, which is more like a vast forest surrounding a palace. It provided beautiful scenery, not to mention the most elevating walk I have had in a long time!
First time in my life I felt like a true lady, with this long skirt, tight waste, sensual collar and sleeves. My awesome sister did my hair, make-up and photos!
The garden held also another meaning- we have an old black & white photo of my late grandmother standing in this park, with a Rotunda on the background. So it was great to discover it decades later and make photos (photos 6, 7, 8).
So here it is, another classy post! Hope you enjoyed!
