Enchanting is the word that keeps popping into my head when I look at this outfit. Appearing as if a fairy tale character come to life is one of Milla’s sartorial specialties and it’s one of the qualities that I adore most about her unique and amazing style.
What I love about this particular vintage 70's Gunne Sax patterned dress is its simple lines and the subtlety of its details. Even with the maxi-length and empire-waist, the lack of much of the usual fanfare that comes along with a gunne makes it seem totally wearable and not costumey. The contrasting elements in her finishing touches (another Milla specialty), delicate lace and a rugged leather satchel, complete the look perfectly :)
