Come and Gone

It seems that Monday was just a little tease of spring (nearly summer). It came and went all too quickly. At least it gave me a chance to wear my new Dear Creatures dress. This is the one I had my eye on when the lookbook came out and I'm so happy it's mine. Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed by so much pattern, but I'm glad I made an exception for this dress.

Tom and I took advantage of the nice weather by spending some time in Longs Park. It seems everyone else in town had the same idea. It was so crowded! After that we headed to our favorite Indian restaurant where we drank Taj beer and stuffed ourselves on malai kofta and kadhai paneer. I guess everyone else in town was still at the park because we were the only people in the whole place. The manager brought us carrot pudding for dessert then I went home and fell right into a food coma while watching the last parts of Mildred Pierce. It was a pretty good day!

Wow that fabric - I have a dress made of exactly the same print but in shades of green and taupe! It's by Route 66 which is an Aussie repro label.
Mine is a 50's style full skirt dress with u-neck and buttons on the straps. It also has a black tulle petticoat attached to the skirt.

So interesting that such a unique fabric can come up a second time like this (I bought my dress years ago) - I wonder where it's sourced from!

I have serious wardrobe envy after reading this post, such a sweet outfit so nicely pulled together!
Those JC heels are definitely going on my 'wish list'!
