I was so chuffed when I saw that Rebecca of The Clothes Horse
created yet another beautiful post featuring Book of Deer. I think she's outdone herself with this beautiful twilight photoshoot, it is precisely how I envisioned the Kindling dress to be worn. An easy-to-wear dress designed for the type of girl who frolics in magical forests capturing fireflies in jars. Here's what Rebecca said:
"I remember catching fireflies in my Grandmother's big yard on summer vacations as a child--it used to mesmerize me to trap them in jars with holes punched in the tops, I could watch them flicker for hours. It's funny, I'm more likely to jump out of my skin if one lands on me now than I was as a child actively trying to hunt for them in the tall grass. Still, fireflies are pretty magical things--one of the rare sources of light in this world that generates almost no heat and sometimes they synchronize their flashes in large groups. I'm also endlessly amused by the "femme fatale fireflies" or females that flash a courting signal to males only to lure them in to be eaten...Needless to say they are neat creatures and I'm quite glad to have a dress featuring them."

It is a nice feeling to know that Book of Deer prints can evoke feelings and memories in the girls who wear them. The fact that fireflies are a nostalgic symbol of Rebecca's childhood makes this post even more special.
