Jacket:Vintage

When I spotted this jacket at Goodwill last week I was immediately drawn to the unique print. Is it birds, butterflies, fairies, just plane ole squiggly lines? I really didn't care much because I knew my purchase was already sealed in my mind and whatever it was supposed to be was beautiful and without the need for interpretation. Well,this morning without searching for my answer to this silly little questions it appeared before me. I noticed how beautiful the light looks shining through the fabric and then it clicked- FIREFLIES. How amazing is that? Not only is this jacket's kimono style simply divine, but the fireflies actually glow in the sunlight.

Such an amazing piece! I once thrifted a dotted shirt and the dots look like shimmery gold flakes! But fireflies that glow are cooler though.

I absolutely love your shoes!
