Still found time, however, to buy a vintage dress or two (naturally) and thought you might like to see this one. Definitely one for my collection.
OK, enough teasing, here it is slightly crumpled from its journey to me but still gorgeous (far too excited to get it on to do anything as sensible as iron it first). Forgive me Mum.
However, when I did attempt to iron it (inside out, on low heat through a muslin cloth), it smoothed out perfectly. And, since it's a special one, I wore it to the christenings of two of my godchildren. But to be honest this is one of those dresses worth creating an occasion for.
Updated it with bea - uuu- tiful heels and clutch from Kurt Geiger. Ta da. Perfect (lucky) colour match or what?
Goes without saying, very sad to peel self out of dress on both those occasions. Oh well, at least the latest dress to arrive at Aspinall Towers is more of an every day sort of vintage dress. Though the day I have planned for it next is anything but an every day sort of day! More on that next time.
I have Rokit to thank for the Coronette Frocks beauty. Searching online, although sometimes a little hit and miss, has turned up some of my favourite dresses. Visit www.rokit.co.uk/blog for Rokit's own blog. While you're there it might be worth having a rummage through Rokit yourself.
Until next time,
