It happened one night

It was a magical night. The new year came and stayed bringing the future closer. All the beautiful sparkling dresses we wore that night became a memory that just happened… one night.

I picked this fashion story because of the title, but even more for the image above – probably my favourite of all the photos of Karen I’ve ever seen. Sparkling, infectiously happy and incredibly sexy.
