A sundress of delight

This time of year, I'm surgically attached to my 1940s repro peasant tops, most of which are from Vivien of Holloway, that emporium of British-designed, British-made reproduction vintage. I recently did a rare spot of modelling for VoH, for their newest (old) creation, the Anna sundress and of course, they kindly let me have one.

I wore it out on a burger date with my love.

Earrings and bangles: Bow & Crossbones

Is it just me or is the quality of these uploads horrible? They look fine on Flickr.

I've tied her straps in knots but you can tuck the back ones away and tie as a halterneck if that's your thing (as I have in the modelling shots). 



A millisecond later, a woman walked out of a door... 



You've all seen my tattoo... right? ;)


And because you can't go anywhere without a jacket, even on a summer's day... my lovely leather one (told you I wasn't wearing anything else.

Coat: eBay

It's kinda perfect for summer wearing,

  3. YES! I find my blog photos look great until I upload them onto my blog...then they look grainy. Ugh...so annoying...

  4. What a lovely look! I swear, every time I see another tiki/tropical/hawaiian print, I have to grit my teeth and refrain from purchasing one immediately. You're making it so hard, though.

    Such a perfect palette for the summer! Soft colors for a tough look, well-done! :)

    Love it! It's amazing how a simple leather jacket can change the style so, but the dress is stunning both with and without it.
