Florals are not my thing. Neither is anything delicate and feminine. Then why am I wearing a flowy, floral A-line dress???I guess it happens to everybody, at one point of another. Temporary insanity, I mean. We’ve all done something totally out of character, once or twice, right? RIGHT?
Besides, it’s not that bad. The dress, I mean. It’s actually quite cute. I mean, that’s why I bought it.
I kept going back to the store, touching it, placing it in front me and looking at myself in the mirror. And then I tried it on.
Big mistake. The next thing I knew I was buying it…
It’s not my usual style, that’s for sure. But I like how the fabric (viscose) moves around me. So, I guess I do sort of like the dress. At times. And at times, I wonder what got into me. As to whether it will become a favourite., time all tell. Perhaps I will find a way to style it in a different way. You know, a bit more edgy… We’ll see.
Anyway, how fabulous is this little bag? And it’s made of cork! Hubby got it for me, as a Christmas present / souvenir from Madeira.
By the way, it’s totally accidental that I’m blending into my surroundings here. Or that the colours in my outfit match the buildings. Or maybe we just happened to pass this street and I couldn’t resist…
