• Spring attire

    A few years back my current choice of style would have been too girly or glamorous for the girl who longed for sexiness and coolness. Fast forward to now, romantic dresses, soft pink, fuchsia and flowers, lots of flowers seem to be just my cup of tea. I am often asked about the brands I like; something British and something French, most definitely European I answer. The garments feel as if they are tailor made for my petite stature.ย  I haven’t ventured much in the US market, import taxes is a huge drawback, I must admit.

    I wrote a post a while ago around brands for petite women, you can read it (here) and I must say Ted Baker is a re-rekindled love story. You know you love a brand when you can actually wear each single piece of their collection. This dress (here) is high on my wish list for the sales season, love this for every day (here) and this (here) is just perfect for summer date night out.

      Oooh! That spring meadow print is soo pretty. And it looks great on you. I had a look at the other TBs in that style and think you picked the nicest.
      As for romantic dresses, and I don’t know how I found this site. But a US company called, Lurelly have two gorgeous embroidered styles. A Diana dress, and a Diana gown. Close up photos of the embroidered flowers is like looking at a work of art. How they do that on chiffon, I do not know.

          I thought you would like that dream of a little dress. Another dream of a dress is the Roshi one
          I like it in ivory, though the green one is pretty,too. X
