Floral Days:It's been a pause or three since the last installment of V+V, but here it is my dears! This week is about impressional floral prints. One of my favourite colours (of an inspiring several) is blue, specifically the variances of light blues, shades and tones.
This vintage day dress exudes the lifestyle mongrel of say... a Susie Homemaker or floral loving teacher from the countryside, or Sunday school girl, yet in the print it offers its common sensibility to us all. Blue illustrates many things, faithfulness, loyalty, but also sadness, and tranquility amongst other meanings.
I also love this dress because of the deep functional pockets, nothing's hidden; everything from the zipper to the lace trim is pretty much exposed. The refining qualities are in the options of how to wear the dress. I chose to add a modern belt.
Lastly, I am preparing for a short holiday coming up in a week or so, however I will still be visiting your lovely blogs when I get the chance. Stay updated next week on Twitter if you like. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
