The name of this painting is "Waiting for William." It's the only one that stuck with me, and I love the emotion behind the portrait. I can feel what she feels, waiting by the see for the man who she loves, wondering if she will ever even see him again. Her eyes tell her story, a story of longing, wishing, and hoping. I wanted to capture the romance of her wind-blown outfit.
This skirt was such a great find at the thrift store.. I believe that it was handmade. It's even prettier in person, where you can get a good look at the details. Most importantly, the color is an ever so soft sky blue.. something I don't own very much of but truly adore.
It was a lucky day at the thrift store the day I found the skirt, because I also found this vintage Oscar De La Renta blouse! I grabbed it as soon as it caught my eye, and halfway through looking through everything, I saw the tag and almost flipped! After buying everything and going home, I realized that the blouse had a coffee stain ALL over it! It looked like the stain had just happened that day, so there was hope.. and thanks to my fabulous washing machine, everything came out! Thanks, Tide!
