Hello, and Happy Monday to you! I hope you've had great weekends.
I had a couple of questions today in the comments and I thought I'd answer them straight away! I have a whole pile of things I have promised to do for you, and I am getting to them one at a time. There is a (long promised) hair tutorial, a post on vintage and pale skin, sharing your tips on dealing with stress, sharing the things that you love when you introduced yourselves…and more! Here are those questions and answers to get us started.

This is a random question, but you are the only blogger I know that owns a Bernie Dexter dress, and I was wondering if you had any advice on how to clean it? The tags always say "dry clean only" but of course this isn't always true with many garments, so I just thought you might be able to help me out as you seem to have had your Eiffel Tower dress for a while :) Thanks :) :) :)
I agree about the dry clean only thing not always being true! I wash my Bernie Dexter Eiffel Tower print dress by popping it in the washing machine along with everything else... I've never had any colour run or shrinking issues etc! I probably washed it by hand on its own the first time, which I think is always a good idea with anything new... good luck! And here's to avoiding dry cleaning!

I have been meaning to ask if you have any tips for shopping on Modcloth?! I'm wary of sizing and fit over the interwebs, but gah! it's hard to resist that site! Especially with the exchange rate where it is... I'd love to hear any wisdom born of experience you might have to share!
I've got two dresses and one pair of shoes from Modcloth, and one of those dresses was by another brand. I've found they are true to size – no vanity sizing with these two! – and would personally go for the larger size if I was deliberating between two – as I almost always am. The shoes were a US7, and I usually take a US6.5 – and these 7's were way too big, so I think from now on I would go down a size with Modcloth's own-brand shoes. The customer reviews they have often include sizing thoughts, too, so I hope that helps!
I have been a bit of a bad blogger of late, but I haven't forgotten my promises! Have a wonderful Monday and I will be back tomorrow! x
