A Lovely Maiyet Capelet

When I was in boarding school, we dressed for dinner every night. 

My favorite shoes were tall slingbacks, in the palest sky-blue leather possible.  I felt like I was floating in a Watteau painting when I wore them.

This dress by Maiyet, in a dreamy, floaty, silky blue recalls those shoes. But whereas I conjured a Watteau for lift-off, this dress seems to have its own glorious feathers attached via capelet for flying ease.

Maiyet . . . Capelet . . . Eaglet . . . umm . . . Robin?
