Yesterday at midday we wandered down to Hyde Park. I put on this dress which I have never had the opportunity to wear, because it doesn't fit me. The waist is right, the shoulders are right, but the bust is just too small. I wasn't able to try it on in store and bought it online. Even though I have other dresses the same brand in the same size, this dress is just impossible for me. This makes me sad, so I thought a single photo shoot to send her off would be fun.
This is the Holiday in Nice dress from Wheels and Dollbaby. I fell in love with it the moment I first saw it. I'm a fiend for gingham and this comes with little lace edged hemline and lace edged cap sleeves. The underskirt has this velvet ribbon trim that makes it look a little like you a wearing bloomers.
I partnered the dress with my trusty straw boater that I bought in Nice, France. It wasn't until later that I remember the dress referenced Nice and I patted myself on the back for being so clever. Of course this hat and dress go together. How obvious. I thought about timing this post with Bastille Day (July 14) but that didn't work out.
