The Birth of Venus

The Birth of Venus_1 The Birth of Venus_2 The Birth of Venus_3 The Birth of Venus_4 The Birth of Venus_5

Romper:  Free People
Sandals: Steve Madden (old)
Clutch: Unbranded, but a gift from Annie
Flowers: From my garden...I bobby pinned them onto my hair
Nail polish: Essie "Lilacism"
Lipstick: Mac "Girl About Town"

Although this outfit was inspired by the late 1960s, these pictures remind me of Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus."  It's kind of funny how similar some of my poses are compared to the model in the painting...LOL!  This was completely unintentional.  :)

This is the Free People New Romantics Love Me Do Romper.  I can't tell you how absolutely stunning the fabric is in person.  It's now of the most unique and beautiful pieces I have in my closet.  It's currently on sale at Free People so get it while you can!

These pictures are Part 2 of my Hot August Nights series.  What do you guys think of it so far?  Here's some music to put you in that 1967 mood:


...and here's a cover by Jimi:


Have a great weekend!

  1. Freaking gorgeous! OMG! I thought these were your wedding photos for a second. So color me tonta, but I didn't know Azucena meant white lily in Spanish! My daughter's middle name means hyacinth. I think this post lives up to your name. Muy muy hermosa.
