A new dress, new to me anyway. It was the perfect frock to wear on Sunday as we took a drive out to have a wander around the most delightful garden as part of the National Garden Scheme. The concept hadn't reached me before a few weeks ago but when the opportunity arose, we answered. What is nicer than wearing a pretty and elegant dress to promenade around an English country garden? Of course I got snap happy amongst the flowers but it would have been rude to take outfit shots on private property so I opted for the safety and solitude of the buttercups.
And I just want to say that monstrous spot or not, I don't meddle with pictures of myself as a matter of principal. I wear eyeliner, mascara and lip balm for which there is no apology but feel no urge to cover up blemishes. That's just who I am at the moment.

The white collars and cuffs set this dress apart from virtually everything else I own. A strong collar is a statement in itself but teamed with the mid arm sleeve cuffs it's a winning combination. Fortunately the sleeves are just the right fit; not too tight and not baggy to the extent of flapping. In fact the whole of the neckline meets my satisfaction, a high neckline is one of my favourite features of attire.

It's almost as though a photograph of a rose has been used for the print as its so life-like. I need more roses in my life, one of my favourite scents is rose. So unmistakable and simple.

I pinned a couple of roses in my hair for good measure, which reminds me that I do want to expand my collection of hair accessories as flowers are very much 'me'.

This dress definitely makes me think of when ladies went to church and wore their Sunday best, turned out all smart and elegant.

  2. The dress is absolutely gorgeous! You know I love a good collar. The only thing you are lacking is a nice close up of the collar without your hair in the way as it is obscuring the collar in all the pictures!!
