A dark-colored dress to sweetly prolong this summer. A dress with autumnal blooms in it and enough smocking in the chest area to feel instantly comfortable. I nearly spelled “smocking” wrong today, it’s a new term I learned this summer in fact. It refers to a sewing technique that adds elasticity to the garments. Most commonly used on the chest and sleeves. My dress you can find (here), the flats (here) and I’m not sure if you noticed my gigantic straw bag? That’s from Aundrey.Leighton.Vintage, one of a kind I’m afraid.
