It seems like it was forever ago that I received a perfectly wrapped package from Effie containing this lovely 50's dress. Of course as soon as I opened the package the temperatures soared to 90 degrees and I didn't feel like wearing anything with sleeves. Now that the weather has taken a bit of a turn this dress is perfect for crisp, sunny afternoons.

Love the pictures. The dress is so lovely...

Louise said...

Did you take these photos with an old polaroid, or is that just a photoshop-added effect? Because they do look quite amazing. Like a holiday somewhere cool and carefree.

The dress is such a lovely colour. The photos have sort of a "Sound of Music" sort of vibe. Really beautiful.

Thanks for all of your comments! This dress will definitely be a staple for my fall wardrobe.

strikematch: Yes, I can see that the spinning has a Sound of Music vibe to it. ;)

It's really pretty perfect on you!! I'm so glad you bought it!! I was watching Atonement the other day and the dress Keira Knightly is wearing at the final scene of the movie reminds me of this green one... She's wearing it with a really pretty wool coat and she's running around the shoreline with it... it's a pretty scene and I think this dress will transition perfectly into the colder days with you!

Thanks again for all of your comments!

Effie: Thank you so much for the wonderful dress. I just love it. I'll be wearing it so much on cooler days. I just recently watched Atonement as well and could barely pay attention to the story-line what for all the beautiful clothes.
