|Beau Shoes: Shelly's*|
|Barry's Dress: Handmade by Dolly Clackett!|
However, last weekend when I was at Sarah's for our little sewing bee, Roisin gave me this wonderful golf print dress. I've been looking for some similar fabric ever since she first made this dress but to no avail. Luckily for me, she'd decided she wasn't a fan of it anymore, so she very kindly gave it to me. I probably need to alter it a little, but laziness prevailed and I just wore it anyway.
I dragged this vintage purple necklace back out of the charity bag to go with the purple and red in the print of this dress and teamed it with these Shelly's flats. They look so nice and comfy, right? Um, wrong. I actually had a pair of these last year, wore them once and then sent them back as they were faulty and the paint or covering was coming off. Which after three hours of wear, wasn't good. I was sent an exhange pair, which I'd not worn until here. I ran back to the car in the rain in them and didn't realise until later on that day that they'd cut the backs of my ankles, which created a rather gross "peeling-off-tights" situation at the end of the day. Ouch.
I seem to be the only person in the world to whom this type of thing happens on a regular basis.
