MY OWN FAMILY- AFFAIRS
FORGET ME NOT
A DEAR GRANDMOTHER
Nina, from Family Affairs, is a magical one of a kind women, like we all are of course.
But next to living this magic, she creates beautiful clothing, jewellery and homeware.
Her designs are standing out with a playful, poetic appearance and mostly with a print on it that Nina draws and designs herself in her atelier in Brooklyn.
I would compare it with the sunset light that shines in your face after a good night out and a long sleep. It wakes you up in an exciting, positive way and you are full of life, dreams, secrets and ready to start this new day.
The designs are “mostly” vegan and the family business that Nina runs takes big care of fair trade good quality production.
For sure a good site to visit if you are on the look out for a special outfit that brings some fun and light into your wardrobe.
Myself, I got surprised by this beautiful COTTONLACE DRESS which is, as already mentioned earlier, named Margrith Dress and part of her MAGIC GARDEN COLLECTION!
I LOVE LACE,
I LOVE THE FORGET ME NOT COLOR,
I LOVE THE LOOK,
THE SURPISE AND THE STORY BEHIND IT.
Thank you from my side
And as the german legend says, the person wearing the forget me not flower, in this case the forget me not dress, will not be forgotten by their lovers….
Legend has it that in medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted “forget me not”. It was often worn by ladies as a sign of faithfulness and enduring love.
A DRESS THAT SYMBOLISES ENDURING LOVE…
WHO WOULD NOT GO FOR THAT…
