Today, I’m swinging back to the Sixties under the elegant roof of the baroque Pavillon des Sept Etoiles (Pavilion of the Seven Stars). We discovered this charming heptagonal gazebo in the middle of a pond somewhere in the park surrounding the Castle of Enghien, Belgium.
I was wearing a colourful A-line dress, the hemline of which gleefully seemed to reach for the roof of the pavilion, resulting in quite a leg-revealing length (but a sixties dress ought to be mini, right?). I wore it with a simple mint green saddle bag that I own in four different colours as a result of a flurry of indecision at the time of purchase (see this instagram). To finish the look, I threw in a white silk headband, a millefiori necklace and some Twiggy poses (the latter may need some further practice though – I hope Twiggy, who must be in her sixties now, doesn’t take offence at my clumsy imitation.)
While doing my best to adopt some “Twiggy cool”, I suddenly noticed strokes of light swirling on the white ceiling of the Pavillon. Was it the reflection of the rippling water of the pond? Or was it the swirling paisley pattern of my dress that created a psychedelic reflection on the vault? You might dismiss my last idea as a mere foray into fantasy inspired by the Sixties mood that had suddenly taken over, but I’m still not sure…
