Mon and I visited a strawberry farm yesterday and I put together this vintage-inspired kolkhoznitsa get-up to do some picking. By the way, a kolkhoznitsa was a female farm worker in the USSR. I had this cotton maxi dress for over a decade and only wore it once before when I played Ophelia in my first year of theatre school – I was one dramatic Ophelia. The design of the dress had always seemed so dated and costume-like to me that I couldn’t imagine wearing it for any “off-stage” occasion. But it is now over half-a-year into my blog and I have myself a strawberry picking outfit; it’s funny how much blogging expands your imaginative horizons.

What I’m wearing:

  • Cotton maxi dress from “Club Monaco”
  • Silk scarf
  • Large leaf earring
  • Vintage leather boots
