This is just a quick one as I’ve already done an almighty plug this week, but I’m just going to do one more bit of marketing for my namesake dress. Shona and I have just released one of the super duper, ultra, mega, limited-edition Fleur dresses… Classic Fruits!
I can’t even explain how much I love this dress. Putting it together gave me an almost illicit thrill! We paired delicious plain forest green with a super rare fruit print cotton for a classic wrap dress colour combination and theme…
It’s a fruity festival! Pears, apples, peaches, grapes and berry clusters as well as blossoms in shades of red, yellow, orange and blush pink are mingled with deep green geometric patterns and Arts and Crafts motifs. It goes perfectly with bangles of coloured plastic, bamboo and Bakelite! We left off the pockets as we wanted it to keep its clean lines and feel more like a party frock.
The peach floral button on the back is from Shona’s extensive vintage stash!
I’ll get a lot of wear out of mine while it’s still summer, to picnic, party and drink King’s ginger cocktails, but it’s also the perfect autumn colour scheme, don’t you think? (Thanks again to Vintage Teatime for the sweet treats!)
This frock is easy-care and easy wear, practical and chic, cute and sophisticated, and will be incredibly rare, for we have only made eight, and one is mine, and one was Bethan’s birthday present. UPDATE: They sold out…within 12 hours.
