Watercolour On Silk

Dress + River = A bit of a theme at the moment. I swear this is the last of the season, but who could resist jumping about and stone skimming in a frock? I love the surreal-ness of wearing a vintage silk ball gown in a (thankfully) secluded Welsh stream.
This particular pale teal beauty was bought by my mother from a car boot sale (like a yard sale) in the late nineties. So it might not technically be vintage,but its definitely retro!
Sadly, no ball has been forthcoming, but I thought it deserved it's own little weekend outing anyway!
The thing I particularly love about silk is the way it immediately changes colour in the water. And although I wanted to do a proper 'swimming in the river shot', my cold prevented this.
The crystal necklace was bought by one of my relatives and found its way to me, and the ring was one of my grandmother's. (I wear it so often, its just beautiful!)
So as you can probably tell from my last post, I've been following London fashion week rather wistfully. I really wish I could be there! But I suppose I couldn't really getto any of the shows.But it does all look so amazing. I've also been enjoying the regular street style updates on Jill's blog. Another great side of fashion to see!
Oh,and remember that the Q&A post should be coming very soon. So carry on asking!
I'm off now to upload about a million photos from a little photography project I did today.
So bye for now...

Quickly only....my reaction: well well, what do you know? I had an almost identical dress in l956! It was same colour silk satin, and I wore it to the opening night party after the Diary opened in the West End. See the collar! But mine was made out of some stiff silk material and the collar was even more stiffened, so it stood up - it frames the face beautifully. babi

I think the fact that it's off-the-shoulders is the best part.
