Dress: Grace Hill @ Ezibuy
Necklace: Tammy’s Treasure Chest
Like Dorian Grey (who sold his soul to look eternally spunky whilst his hidden portrait grew uglier and uglier) this dress is lovely in Real Life. It’s a gorgeous plummy colour and is made of a heavyweight jersey that drapes beautifully. It’s a mock wrap cut, meaning that I get all the benefits of a wrap dress without the “oops, there’s my knickers” surprise moments you get when confronted with a gusty day.
But. It simply doesn’t photograph well.
I forget this from time to time, and trundle out to my courtyard – camera in hand – where I spend the next twenty minutes taking photo after photo going “Maybe this one… maybe this one… maybe this one…”
Well, forty photos down, and I think I have captured the dress to the best of my modelling/photography ability – you might have to take my word for it, but it really is a very nice dress…
