What's black and white and red all over?

This frock is made from a sweatshirt type of material. Perfect for a Friday before a holiday.

Belt - Goodwill
Shoes - Fashion Bug

Vintage necklaces inherited from my mother
and mother in law.

Yesterday's frock was also a glorious favorite of mine. I came home sick, but snapped these pictures quick before collapsing in bed.

I bought this frock about 20 years ago and still love it. I've re-sewn the button holes several times to keep the buttons snug (so I'm not flashing anyone inadvertently).
I've grown and shrunk with this dress. It has a tie in the back to adjust the bodice.

I thought if I put a flower in my hair that morning, it would make me feel better. Didn't work...

...and lavender and white fake pearls.
My $6 shoes from Gabriele Brothers.

Oh my it's hard to feel sick in such a glorious dress with a flower in your hair so you must have been feeling very ill indeed!! I adore your new frock from MRTB - such a wonderful feathery/flower print. Thank you so much for your lovely comment my dear. Have a restful weekend:))) xo
