SUNFLOWERS IN WINTER…
We just wanted to share with you some of the photos we took for the “Sunny Sunflower Dress” from the “Gossamery Gardens”collection.
To learn all about this dress in detail, please click HERE. This style of dress is going to be available in other colors and prints, so if you aren’t particularly fond of sunflowers, there will be other choices available. We will be posting a poll to our Instagram stories soon, so be on the lookout for that. We would love to know what colors you think we should select. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
We were lucky, and had rather warm weather when we were shooting these photos. It would have been nice to be able to shoot photos in a sunflower field, but alas, it isn’t summer yet. I wanted to get this dress made, and up in the shop, so that those who wish to purchase one, can enjoy it in summer!
We hope you enjoyed our photos here, as much as we enjoyed taking them. Make sure to follow our Instagram account, so you can voice your opinion in our Instagram stories poll!
Until next time…
The “La Dame Blanche” dress
La Dame Blanche
The mystery and lore that surrounds “La Dame Blanche” or “White Lady” is vast in its depiction and origin. From Eastern and Western Europe, to the Americas, every country has folklore surrounding this supernatural woman/spirit. In some countries she is viewed as a witch or sorceress, and in others she is seen as a ghost or spirit (several of which are located here where we reside!) She may described as being of good character, helping and healing those who are in need, or bad, forcing those who come across her path to bend to her will. If the passerby would not comply with what she asked of them (such as dance or crawl on their knees to her) they would suffer her punishment carried out by her minions/helpers (hobgoblins, owls, cats, and those creatures who helped her) Still some see her as a healer, who lovingly and willingly helps those in time of need.
In Current Popular Culture
“La Dame Blanche” has been depicted in popular culture over the years. The most current, and positive depiction of her happens to be our favorite. Claire Fraser from the books/tv series Outlander is referred to as “La Dame Blanche”because of her vast knowledge of herbal medicines, and healing arts. She cures the ill, and eases pain of their suffering with her “otherworldly” skills, and kind bedside manner. She is strong, highly intelligent, powerful, gentle, and loving. It is from this more positive description in which we draw our inspiration for the styling of this dress.
These photos were shot in an area steeped in lore and spirit sightings, with “white lady” sightings being some of them. We found the landscape a perfect setting for our photos, and the lore surrounding the area a crowning bonus.
The “La Dame Blanche” dress shown here is available now in our online shop. Click HERE to learn more.
