You’re Adorable

The beautiful color of chartreuse is aptly named after the Chartreuse Mountains near Grenoble, France. In the 1740s, French Monks made Grande Chartreuse liquor using a secret formula of herbs and flowers, so it is only fitting that Gigi stands before you among the flowers and herbs of her glorious garden. She is an illusion of light in a smartly tailored full taffeta ball gown trimmed in French Hoyer lace. Her delicate face is protected from the afternoon sun by a vintage finely woven French straw hat trimmed in flocked flowers and ribbon. On her gloved fingers, she carries a vintage pleated fan.
