I couldn't resist
Wearing: Vintage Vest and Old Navy Maxi dress
While i was away in the countryside I could not resist not taking some pictures on top of a large pile of hay. This type background is extremely common in the Romanian countryside and I thought it was the perfect backdrop to my maxi dress I was wearing that day.
By some miracle 2 minutes before I left to get my pics taken, I saw on the bed this old folk vest that used to belong to my great grandmother as I was told. I loved the embroidery pattern and the colour combo on it. I did not bring it with me as it was made out of a super itchy material, it was not lined and most importantly it was extremely badly stained in some areas. I was told by my aunt that she tried several times to clean it and restore the vest but without any success. It's such a pity because it is such a wonderful piece. I would have loved to have something in my closet that belonged to my great grandmother since I never had the chance to meet her.
