Stripes and Flowers

I am so happy that the weather is getting nicer here and I can spend more time outside. As you can see our tree is on the verge of blooming and when it does it is spectacular! As you can also see Harriet and Fiona (my crazy dogs) are enjoying the weather as well.

I recently purchased this dress from eShakti and I really like it. I’m not crazy about the fabric though, the cotton poplin tends to wrinkle something fierce, but the embroidery on the top of this dress was too beautiful to pass up. I added a teal belt (from my Milan dress) and these great new-to-me Chelsea Crew shoes I purchased from a lovely lady in England from one of my FB Fashion groups. I’m not sure if the skirt is full enough to wear a petticoat under, but I will try it.

    Lovely pictures. If the wrinkling drives you crazy and you don’t want to return it, perhaps you can have an alteration person replace the skirt with a fabric that is wrinkle free. It might be costly, but depending on how much you plan to wear it it may be worth it. Just a thought, Elena

      Elena,

      Thanks, that’s a great idea. If I have issues I might look into it.
