Terribly sorry for the long absence. I was enjoying the festive period and catching up with this and that. Christmas may be a distant memory now, but I thought I'd share some photos from the day as I wore a beautiful dress. I've been meaning to photograph this dress since I bought it early last year, yet never quite got round to it. Luckily, Christmas provided the perfect excuse to wear such a posh frock. The dress is from 1944, with black semi-sheer material layered over pinky red. The bodice has a lovely rose motif and a floppy collar fashioned into a bow. The pleated full skirt is so swishy and perfect for floating around in. It is a little large for me (the arm holes gape a lot so I have to be careful not to flash sideboob) but the sash at the waist helps pull it in and keep things in place. It was a delight to wear, now all I need are more formal events to go to so I can enjoy wearing it again.
