Italian vintage roses - a fairytale
I love wearing roses in the summer. This beautiful 50's skirt is one of a kind. It's made out of silk and has gigantic deeply pink roses stiched to it. It's made in Firenze, one of my favourite places in Italy. Even the label is beautiful in itself.
The lady I bought it from had won at an auction in Paris. Apparently someone had left it in the drycleaners over 30 years ago and never picked it up. The dry cleaner finally donated it to a Parisian auction house. It feels almost new, even though it´s 60 years old. I love when you have the privilege to know the story of a vintage item. It makes it even more special. A vintage fairytale.
