Love you hiding amongst the trees! The floral dress is heavenly, and I have been watching a bag just like that on eBay! So lovely and roomy xxx

You beautiful creature, that's just what I need, some colour and gorgeousness on this grey, snowy morning!
Cousin Phil's done a brilliant job on your photos, they are exquisite. That dress rocks and I'm dying over those spectacular specs!
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxx

You can get arrested for lurking about in bushes you know. I can't see what's bad about the frock, but then we do tend to be disparaging about our own work. It's sooo pretty and I love the lacy trim down the front. I'm glad somewhere has got sun, we haven't seen it for months!

If you meet someone in the bushes that offers you candy just run!
IsThat a hellokitty bow?
I'm loving the dramatic poses!

Cousin Phil is very talented, these photos are so beautiful and nature is a great frame for your amazing dress, why you wrote that is made badly, I adore it!The waistcoat is lovely on it!I know that someone has already written it before but if you buy a red bow in Japantown the comparison with Hello Kitty come naturally! You are perfect!
Lots of love

freckleface said...

Tee hee! Look at you lurking in the undergrowth. A friend of mine had an uncle who was apparently a bit of a Peeping Tom. He used to camoflage himself with a bit of greenery. He was known to the locals as Moving Bush. :D

You look lush my dear! Beautiful kissy pout! xxxx

Furtling about in the undergrowth, how fabulous! Tania's comment about Moving Bush made me snort - that's you, that is!
Beautiful frock, darling, no one could possibly tell it isn't up to your usual high standards of seamstressery! Gorgeous print, love those sunglasses, and Cousin Phil has captured you frolicking about in the dappled light in a most delicious way! xxxxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

I certainly don't see anything suspect about the dress - I'm terribly impressed by anyone who can make a whole dress from scratch! The little jacket has such a pretty shape and flattering neckline.

So few people dress properly for creeping about in the underbrush, so thank you for setting a good example ;)

Kelly Roy said...

I like it even more that you made this dress.You always look so well taken care of and polished. Just what we need for a bit of inspiration in the middle of the week.

Renia said...

Twice in my life I thought I saw a UFO...granted, one time I was rather hung-over...and I was certainly not dressed even half as fab as you are!
I love those glasses!

Misfits Vintage said...
