This skirt that I am wearing is actually a two piece dress. I've decided to wear the skirt by itself (for now) with a simple silk shirt, knotted at the waist. I love the subtle polka dot print and the button detail down the front of the skirt. I chose neutral wedges to keep the look soft and feminine.
Some exciting news, I've recently started writing for fashion site stylenugget.com. You can read my latest trend report on the knotted shirt right here.
I'm also wearing two original pieces of jewelry made by Rafael Alfandary, Dalia's father. She learned a lot of her skills from him, but their aesthetic is very different. Rafael was famous for rough-hewn brass and glass creations, while Dalia's approach is more feminine and delicate. In the 70's he created the crowns for Miss Canada pageants, as well as custom pieces for Mohammed Ali and Jackie Onassis.
Both pieces that I am wearing are absolutely spectacular. The glass stone on the bold oversized ring and brass medallion pendant has a soft greeny/blue tint to it. This juxtaposition of rough brass with the subdued stones gives the pieces a unique edge.
I want to say a big special Happy Birthday to the boy and his sweet twin sister.
Happy Birthday you two cupcakes! I love you both so very much.
thanks for visiting today.
