red and blue vintage dress
Spring has come back, and since last Sunday it has been warm and sunny. And I can now start wearing my new things. Finally!
Today I wore my new vintage red and blue dress. I love it. It is a beautifully soft cotton, with a boned, pleated bodice and a full skirt, and a bright cyan lining in the frill around the bust. I love this contrast between the bright red and the almost sky blue.
I headed of to the park to enjoy some sunshine (with, of course, the factor 30; I went for the Clarins. It's very good) to enjoy the last of the green grass before Summer's dried yellows kick in. I brought along another new purchase (spendy spend spend!) – a parasol. I have been looking for years for one like this, even scouring antiques shops in Hobart when there two summers ago. Finally, I found this one; it's not vintage, but it is exactly what I was looking for. Very Picnic at Hanging Rock – I think a day trip is on the cards!
I am know off to read all of your lovely blogs! What with my rather sporadic reading lately, I must have missed so much.
