“an heirloom outfit”… “family effort”…. whatever, something like that. this dress was my mom’s that i rescued from our pile of clothing to donate. i love its heavy material and it’s satisfying my maxi dress craving for now. the belts are my aunt’s that i received years and years ago. they are so ancient (aka the leather is completely stiff and useless) and i’m pretty sure the A and R are completely random, but i love their sort of oldman/professor feel.
