It was passion at first sight. Laura Ashley. Corduroy. One of my loves. The absolutely perfect blend of blues (perfect blues, no less) and purples (lavender, mauve, burgundy). Be still my heart. I think the dress is 1980s; so I guess it is vintage-y instead of vintage.
Made in Great Britain. Size 8. Where have you been all my life?
I have been busy making grapevine wreaths to put up, to sell, for gifts. For whatever. Do you love to make things? What are you making right now?
Are you sick of the Steve Madden boots yet? Me either. They are so easy. Easy to put on. Beautiful to look at. Useful. Easy on the feet. I say invest in good boots. At least one pair. You won't regret it.
I don't care what anyone says. Laura Ashley dresses fit wonderfully. They fit so snugly and yet are not binding or constricting. They are classic. Maybe I should just start collecting them. Oh yeah. I already collect dresses. Why limit myself?
A plethora of fabric flowers. And they don't match. But somehow they work with the outfit as a whole!
And lest you forget about my love affair with tights, well, here they are. Perfectly suited to the dress. Dress lovers, I have been playing outside, and of course the stones in front of me are homemade from cement. I need to get busy and make more. (And rake. ~blush blush~)
Here it is December, and we have been having unseasonably warm weather. I have been noticing this pincushion flower looking like it is going to bloom! Maybe it wants to come out and celebrate this floral dress?
I made the birdbath in the background. Oh, dress lovers, I so much love working with my hands. My dream is to have a store some day, and I must admit, the Mr. has entertained many of my ideas, and I have been looking at properties and rental spaces. Maybe some day.
Life calls. My granddaughter is at my feet even now, and I think we are going to go outside and play.
