Atonement

Vintage dress; Banana Republic headband

I bought this vintage dress after watching Atonement.  I know that it’s a far cry from the gorgeous slinky silk dress that Keira Knightly wore in the movie, but it’s the closest thing I could find in a vintage store in Los Angeles.  This dress sweeps the floor unless you cinch it up in back (which I did, because it’s been so hot lately).  

I made the headband by pinning a silk flower to a Banana Republic headband I got in high school.  I didn’t have this in mind when I styled the shoot, but when I looked at the photos later, they reminded me of the works of Alphonse Mucha.  Pretty!
