Dress: MANGO (old) / Photos by Richard Nicholls


Waking up at 5:00 am to be able to shoot at the break of dawn might sound crazy, but it also sounded like a good idea at the time …I was putting my clean laundry back in my closet and I found this dress I’ve had for over a year waiting to be worn -Ok, maybe I forgot about it as it was piled under a couple more dresses- but the moment I saw it, I pictured a shoot at the beach on the break of dawn and I immediately thought; If I don’t do this now before the summer ends, I’ll have to wait another year and I really don’t like waiting.
Don’t know how I managed to get up so early but I am not gonna complain, I love the end result and I know that if I would have gone a few minutes later, the light would’ve been completely different and we wouldn’t have gotten the photos/light we wanted.
Despertarme a las 5 de la mañana para tomar fotos con la luz del amanecer se me hizo una locura, pero también una idea buenísima… Mientras guardaba mi ropa limpia en el closet, me encontré este vestido que tengo desde hace mas de un año y no había tenido la ocasión para usarlo, así que lo primero que me imagine fueron fotos en la playa al amanecer y eso fue exactamente lo que hice al día siguiente.
Todavia sigo sorprendida de que me desperte a las 5 de la mañana para hacer esto, pero no me voy a quejar por que estoy feliz con el resultado, unos minutos después y la luz de las fotos hubiera sido completamente distinta, así que valió la pena :)

You had such a great idea Andy! those photos are stunning you look super lovely in every single photo and together they are better than a Vogue's photoshoot because you smile :) and the dress it self is simple but amazing so classy but also so glam because of the polka dots pattern and i just love love long dresses: they are so… Grace Kelly like ahaha :)kisses from Italy :*

  11. Usually I'm not that fond of maxi dresses, they often have no good fit or prints that are way over the top… But this one? I like! I like how it suits you, and the dots are playfull.Being at the beach at the crack of dawn is amazing right? I love the smell of wet sand :-)
