We are always looking for the key. The key to success, the key to love, the key to happiness. We already have these keys inside of us. And there isn't one simple answer or one key for these things. It is a series of things, a growth, heartbreak and love, winding paths, steep hills, until we reach our destination. The design on this dress reminded me of the Greek Key or Meander. Which is the figure of a labyrinth in linear form that symbolizes infinity and unity. There is an eternal flow inside of us. A flow that wants us to reach all of these keys. Our journeys are full of twists and turns but we have to trust we are on the right one no matter what comes our way. You have what you need already. Be brave enough to face it. A new dress is great but it doesn't change who I am. Clothes are a tool that I use to express myself & protect myself. Clothes are something I use to access the keys inside myself, to unlock my creativity and imagination. 

Like Diana Vreeland said, "It’s not about the dress you wear, but it’s about the life you lead in the dress."
