Maxi Dress with Tiny Flowers and Granny Boots (and a partner)

Dear Dress Lovers,

Thank you all for your very sweet and kind comments.  I love them!  And welcome to new readers!  I love hearing from you, and I love that your visits lead me, in turn, to your own lovely blogs!  I have found so much inspiration and help out there, reading what you all have to say. 

This morning I put on one of my favorite long dresses for some morning time in the garden.  Vix, this dress totally makes me think of you!

I think this maxi dress may be homemade.  There is no label, and the lace, trim, and stitching are definitely reminiscent of something homemade.  I do think it's vintage.  Reminds me of the 1970s, which is a good thing since Sarah of Misfits Vintage has invited everyone to rejoice this week over flowers.  She has declared it FLORAL WEEK.  If the 1970s were not a time of Flower Power, I don't know if there ever was a time of Flower Power!

I love the bright morning sunlight in the garden.  It does something for a woman's soul!

Perhaps I can darken it up a bit, though, to show you the LOVERLY blue tiered skirt on this dress!

Kneeling down to talk to the flowers.  Sarah, are you getting this??

A little more detail.  My Steve Madden boots.  The tiny FLORAL print on the dress is scrumptious!  Will show you the beautifully detailed leather belt in just a momento.


Sun, please warm my face.  But then again, don't.  I don't care to acquire anymore wrinkles at this point!

Fall is approaching in my neck of the woods, but I pulled the pink to the forefront of this rose picture, just in celebration of FLORAL WEEK.

Long hair, always in fashion IMHO.

A closer look at the Silver Creek belt.
