Feather Brain

You know how it is when you have something on your radar and you suddenly notice it everywhere? Well, I've had feathers on my brain for several weeks and now it seems feathers are flying down the runway and out of the magazines. These feathery creations look so elegant and thrilling to wear, I would like to share a few beautiful examples with you.

And today marks the second year anniversary of Bien Vestido. Thank you for being a reader!
