Dear Friend,

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last week or two…I have been crazy busy…working extra hours, studying and running around after the family.

Hopefully life will be returning to normal next week and I will be able to get back to blogging again.

I bought this little treasure on etsy about a month back but I haven’t been able to wear it, as it was a little on the small side. It has been sitting in my mending/sewing/alteration pile all this time…I really have been busy…really busy!

Here are some detail shots of the beading and rhinestones;

and its gorgeous hemming tape;

I finally got around to letting the seams out…. and here is the result;

This dress is quite out there for me…I normally wouldn’t pick something this loud but I couldn’t resist the scarf style collar with rhinestones…and it felt just like a Joanie dress.

After a couple of photos I decided that I didn’t like the dress with my hair up. I quickly took it out and popped in a sparkling silver headband…I’m not sure which one looked better? I think the dress looked younger and more fun with my hair down?

I love the back, not only has it got the scarf over the shoulder it has the lovely deep pleat and belt detail;

The pictures just do the dress justice.

No matter how many places, camera angles and poses we tried, we just couldn’t capture the beauty of the dress fully. It’s always a shame when that happens…    cést la vie!

Hoping you all have a great weekend!
