When they say to "blend into your surroundings", you dress accordingly. when I found this dress in a little store on a side street in Castellammare, I knew exactly when I was going to wear it. The "hand painted" look was so apropos for Caltagirone where they are known for their hand painted ceramics! There is a lot of hand painted pottery in Sicily but the majority comes out of Caltagirone (to learn more about the history click here).
