Gorgeous workmanship! “Pekin” stripes are textiles originally made in China of equal-width striped patterns of differing colors and weaving methods. Along with the expansion of interest in chinoiserie, around 1760, Peking striped fabric was even produced in France & became very popular.

“Recognize that there's something AMAZING about you. Everyone has something that comes very natural for them - natural gifts and talents. That gift/talent is that thing or things that comes easy for you, but hard for most. The greatness that is stored within was given to you, because it was meant to be used. Whether you've been running from it or haven't discovered it yet, it's there. It's your job to discover and master it. It wasn't given to you in vain, it's part of your purpose ! - YP
Love the varying shades of blue in the worn paint on this old door and chair an the texture of the flower arrangement in front of them.
This is less about the dress itself than about the overall picture here. Though the dress is quite lovely, too. :)
