I regard this dress as a summer classic; one I'll wear year in year out regardless of what's currently on trend. It's one of those practical ones with a good weight of fabric, sensible length and flattering cut. In fact it was the first one I posted just about a year ago when I relaunched as Sophie in the Sticks, hasn't time flown by? Of course it does feel like SITS has been precisely what this blog was all along and I've had a brilliant twelve months of blogging with so much wonderful support and brilliant opportunities. It's a good time to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to drop by and read; you have no idea just how much it means to me and I appreciate it so much. There have been over one thousand posts now and over ten thousand comments over the years, with so many tweets and retweets; the numbers are quite staggering to little old me really. Despite numerous wobbles and crashes in confidence (they seem temporary, touch wood) I have no plans to slow down and look forward to bringing you more posts sharing all my loves and discoveries. I'd love to have another little re-design, somebody stop me! Stick around wont you, things are looking bright.
