I Love Her Dress



I have had this image saved in my picture file for a long time and as I was flipping through my images today I spotted it again. I absolutely LOVE her dress. I think she looks so groovy and stylish!

Stunning.

Petra :-) said...

she is really looking gorgeous in her dress, this is a kind of dress if you wear it you are "well dressed" without showing "too much" ;-)
*love* it...

I was out shopping for this yesterday! I did find a few vintage frocks that are en route to the seamstress.

I must agree...lovely!

Nanette said...

Anna, I suspect you'd rock that dress and accessorise with some killer heels. In fact, what an excellent photoshoot, you in the dress sitting on one of your highly patterned sofas! Gorgeousness.

I'm sorry "Hostess Dresses" are no longer in fashion because they were so very comfortable and chic at the same time. I may just fish one out of my closet.

katiedid said...

Groovy and stylish is right!!

Traci said...

If only I could pull that off! :)

Beach Vintage said...

Oh Anna I would love to add this dress to my collection , it's stunning.

Lizzytish said...

I love this too, Anna! I wish it was still to wear "hostess attire" when having parties. We should bring it back!

Bralliz said...

And she wears that dress well. I on the other hand, would look like a walking, talking sofa!

Anna,
I adore your blog. Colour, OH! the joy of such delights for the eye and soul.
I would happily spend all day browsing through your shop and the Straddy house is a dream.
I am in the country. Dry at the best of times and barren when not, however we love it. We run an artist retreat, so we don't tend to have many unstainworthy pieces. But I do like to look. Thankyou for sharing. sharonleeartist.blogspot.com

that is a fabulous dress - but it's becuase of the lady - she can make it work. I would look like Scarlet O'Hara gone very very very wrong. Funny how some can carry off something while others simply cannot.

Divine. Absolute elegance but with her own amazing style. A style not everyone could make happen but she seems to do it with ease. It's not just the fabric though, it's the way the dress is cut... Px

I love her dress too and always try to pick them up if I see them at goodwills or flea markets, stunning!

Elecat said...

spruce said...

first time on your blog... doesnt her dress remind you of the beautiful floral dress in botticelli's primavera? http://www.windows.ucar.edu/mythology/images/primavera.gif
