a) It’s £230.
b) Spaghetti straps mean no bra, with my bust that is not a good look.
c) The colour will either make me look naked or like corned beef.
d) The dropped waist will sit just on the widest point of my child-bearing hips.
e) It’s winter.
But I am hankering after it.
The broderie anglaise detailing on the bust is beautiful, the 1930s feel is so elegant, the gorgeous drape of the fabric, the colour. I also love the gold jewellery Baby Ceylon have styled it with. I’m having visions of wearing this whilst sitting side-saddle on a horse galloping along a beach with the sun setting and my hair flowing out behind me…
Ahem… Fantasies aside, maybe one of you ladies with a perkier bust, smaller hips, warmer complexion and imminent holiday will have more success?
