It was really snap and spontaneous idea, but I decided last minute to spend my summer in my beloved San Francisco. I fell in love with this city on the first sight when I visited six years ago. I have always been obsessed with its historical background and this is my forth visit so far. I am planning to take a lot of photographs while I am here and to work even harder but I must admit I was so jetleg the first week I had to adjust myself first. I was so eager to go back to San Francisco´s Palace of fine arts and do some pictures over there, I had this gorgeous location in mind since I designed and got this dress made. I got the fabric at little antique fair in Crouch End in London where I go every month to look for some treasures. It´s 1930´s and quiet strong and heavy piece, probably originally made for curtains. Dress was made for me in Slovakia and as I done this before, I covered a clutch with the same fabric so I could have another matching outfit.
Back to the Palace of fine arts, this monumental place is one of my favourite here and I discovered it through Hitchcock´s Vertigo. It was way too windy and had to find the perfect spot so you can´t see much of its background, but I know I will be back there again soon.
I am wearing dress designed by me, hand-made clutch, vintage belt from Beyond Retro (London), 1950´s charm bracelet with lovebirds from Static Vintage (San Francisco) and blue velvet heels from New Look.
