Enough of these excuses! When the weather gets warmer I'm going to have a go at this, because at Christmas I received a delightful package from the beautiful Khrystyna containing a delightful Gunne dress, with an exciting, wench-like lace up bodice! Watch this space.
I've wanted to write about Gunne dresses for a while. I own one Gunne Sax skirt and now a dress in my 'collection'. There's so many things I want to say about these beautiful, iconic gowns! I feel like theres a wealth of influences that I couldn't possibly cover in one post, so consider this the first of many.
Here I am going to highlight my Gunne inspiration, a girl who truly embodies the Gunne spirit. Khrystyna of Food, Flora and Felines !
Khrystyna lives in Cork with her boyfriend in their curiosity shop of an apartment and often wanders out into the countryside/wilderness much like the heroine of a Laura Ingalls book.
Isn't she a dream?
