Miss Italy

Oh it’s cold outside! I decided to have a look at some of my summer holiday photos to cheer me up. First stop on our September vacay was beautiful Bologna- what a great city!

When I was designing a holiday wardrobe I was heavily influenced by the wardrobe of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, and Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr Ripley too…..those costumes…swoon!

This dress is made from original vintage fabric, I’m guessing it’s late 50’s early 60s, it’s a blue organza with an embossed white floral print, I thought it would be cute in a full skirt and fitted bodice. I included a white lining and of course a petticoat too. It’s finished off with a little belt detail.

These photos were taken at the Anatomical Theatre of the Archigannasio in Bologna…I urge you to visit if you are there!

Ciao!
