“Death and the Maiden. Recalling the iconic image of Sir John Everett Millais’ Ophelia, Ronan captures the troubled heroine’s fateful scene. Nicolas Ghesquière was so enchanted with the shimmering, mermaid-like celluloid fringe, inspired by a 1966 dress in Balenciaga’s archives, that he used it again in his spring collection. Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière silk crepe dress, silk-and-cotton top, and bracelets.”
As many of you know I’m an Environmental Studies major who loves nature and all of its animals. This summer I plan to do marine field research in Turks and Caicos. I’m in the process of raising money to pay for the rest of my program that my scholarships don’t cover. SO I’m selling handmade hemp/cotton bracelets. If any of my followers would like to purchase them please let me know because I’m considering setting up a store on Etsy or simply selling them on Ebay to make it easier for anyone who wants to buy them from me. Please message me (OFF ANON) if interested (:
