Lavender and Lace

Every so often you stumble upon a dress, the perfect dress. A dress that slips seamlessly into your wardrobe, a dress that can we worn come rain or shine, a dress that appears to have been made especially for you! Last week I found one such dress in the most unexpected of places - Dorothy Perkins. I didn't think I was a Dotty P kinda girl but I was reading Melle Robot when I saw Laetitia wearing a lovely black lace frock. I went straight over to the DP website, searched 'lace' and hit the jackpot. This darling there waiting of me, on sale no less. I'm very pleased to announce that I am, indeed a Dotty P kinda girl!

Dress & Belt - Dorothy Perkins, Loafers - New Look, Nail Varnish - c/o AEngland,
Detachable Collar - Wayward Daughter.

I've barely taken it off since the postman made his delivery. With sandals, sunglasses and a denim jacket when the sun shone. Chunky loafers, tights and a blazer for dinner and drinks then finally with a collar from my collection, leather loafers and windswept hair. It's such a versatile piece that I think I have no choice but to buy it in green too.
