Romance is in the air...or should we say "wear"? Bea Soriano-Dee's newest floral frock, an acquisition from cool, Gothic-flavored label The Vampire's Wife, is a total storybook heroine dream.
The high-necked, tight-waisted dress, officially dubbed The Songbird, echoes the silhouette made famous by the Victorian period's cult of mourning yet paradoxically boasts of the bountiful, sprigged blooms of a colorful springtime prarie. The Beguiled's hyperfemme schoolgirl frills meets The Phantom of the Opera's staid, stoic Madame Giry? Yes and yes.
