full bloom dress


This weekend I had a date with one of my most interesting friends, Claudette, who loves to get gussied up as much as I do, so when I have a date with her I pull out all the stops. I have been waiting since winter to wear this dress, which I got on eBay one night when I couldn't sleep, I felt so lucky, the timing was just perfect.  Before going out Claudette came to my house and shopped the shop and left wearing a different outfit than the one she arrived in (happens a lot around here).

Good gracious--what an amazing dress! The "petal bust" detail is beautiful; something I've seen a lot in vintage fashion images, but not so much in extant pieces. Lovely! :)

This dress is GORGEOUS! I think my favorite part of the whole outfit is the peach belt. It's such a little feminine surprise!
