The story:

Just a simply navy blue vintage dress with white polka dots? Not so quick now ;) 

Look closely and see her for all her subtle glory: 

1) Embroidered leafs and cut-outs at the sleeves and hems. So exquisitely done and details we shouldn't take for granted. 

2) An elegant swan-neckline that dips ever so gently in the front.

3) Micro-pleats at the waist. Love!

4) The softest fabric that's a dream on the skin ;)
