Ring O’ Roses. It’s Blooming Lovely to be tagged.

Hello Lovely People.

Today I’m wearing two of my absolute favourite things. Red and 1950s. I have to say this is one of the nicest dresses I own. It makes me happy just to look at it.

 

Covered in gorgeous red roses, with flattering 3/4 sleeve and fab full skirt. It’s so perfect for the autumn.

Such a great silhouette.

 

Close up detail. Beautiful.

Another thing that happened to me recently was I was tagged by my fellow blogger and all round lovely person Mrs Hotchpotch.

Autumn Art in Brilliant Burgundy.

The leaves are falling, the sky is grey but don’t be blue.

Autumn is truly the season for rich, beautiful colour and fabulous Period Drama.

Today I’m feeling inspired by the shades of the season and amazing Art Deco. 

Wearing this lush, vintage burgundy velvet, cape sleeve dress with embroidered detail, I feel wonderful. Just like a 1930s screen goddess.

 


Figure skimming in all the right places.

Beautiful waist detail, teamed and with simple pearls.

Added this stunning Edwardian, embroidered bag (borrowed from my good friend) to complete the look. Downton Abbey meets Ginger Rogers.

All I need now is a roaring fire and some port.
