caramel baby and child created a gorgeous dress for natalia vodianova's naked heart foundation inspired by her childhood memories. caramel asked myself and a few other bloggers that i deeply admire to write about memories of a favorite childhood outfit or piece of clothing, here is my contribution to the mini series (and isn't the adult version of the dress amazing?)
i had to go through an old box of photos to find one and couldn't tear myself away from the pictures of my mother in her twenties and early thirties. i see her smile every day when i look in the mirror, the same smile that my daughter has. i feel so blessed to have inherited this little piece of sunshine from her. my life is imprinted with the smiles she so freely gives us still.
