Adina in a “Rock Steady” dress

Up until a few years ago I was the second tallest person in my family. One after another my children are now growing taller than me, making me feel like a little hobbit. My daughter Adina just turned 13 a couple of months ago and is now one head taller than me. How could this be? She was just a baby, and now we are wearing/sharing the same clothes.

This strapless 50s inspired dress is called “Lady of the Dark”, and is made by Rock Steady clothing. It features a black satin finish in a leopard pattern. Accentuating the waist and flaring into a taffeta-lined skirt in three different layers reaching down to the knees. It is adorned with three silver skull buttons lined up from the waist. I bought it in L.A last summer because I don’t have so many flared dresses and I thought it might look pretty.

These pictures of Adina are taken by photographer Peter Gaudiano in an old abandoned sawmill in Småland, and the picture of me is taken by photographer Göran Magnusson on the same weekend.
