Introducing Vivat Veritas, a lovely site by Chie Duncan who makes all of the beautiful clothing she sells by hand, including this summery white dress.

New dress - Vivat Veritas, hat (too old to remember), New bracelet - Mimi's Boutique, New ring - Forever 21

Tokyo based Japanese designer Chie Duncan sent me this gorgeous white dress with a custom fit :) You can shop her store here. I've always wanted a white dress to take pictures in a sea of flowers and so now I finally have one! 

The dress is double lined so it is not see through. It is also a sort of thick material but still very easy to move with and breathable. The texture of the dress was a bit hard to get with the camera as it kept getting washed out but it has a sort of threaded surface. 

While taking pictures a bumblebee flew right behind my head, and it was so loud it surprised me! Speaking of which, my sister brought up this quote about bumblebees: "Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway." - Mary Kay Ash. Such a cute quote, eh? :)
