Shoes: I Love Billy
We interrupt today’s regular programming to bring you the very exciting news that for ONE WEEK ONLY, Louise at Sohomode is offering Frocks and Frou Frou readers a 15% discount on her custom-made dresses with the code frocksandfroufrou.
I can’t stress enough what a great opportunity this is. Louise’s tea-dresses are reaching cult status, and she never discounts. I’m lucky enough to own two myself: this one, and my original “harvest” dress, and I can’t rave about them enough. I loved my own dresses enough to send my favourite girls down the aisle in Sohomode bridesmaid dresses, and they loved them enough to re-wear them again and again.
I’m seriously tempted by Louise’s generous offer to buy a THIRD dress actually, though I’m having a hard time choosing between the gorgeous vintage fabrics on offer. The poppies on navy are divine, or the bold floral in primary colours, or the striking yellow plaid for something different to my usual florals?
Whatever fabric I choose I’m confident that like all six dresses I’ve ordered from Louise in the past, they’ll fit perfectly and be beautifully finished, with the little details that make her tea-dresses such a work of art; the satin piping on the bodice and cap sleeves, the velvet ribbon detailing on the belt, the pockets…
So if you’ve ever thought maybe you might like something a bit special to wear that’s been made with love especially for you, to fit you, from fabric you’ve chosen. Something original and perfect that you won’t see on every second person walking down the street… Now’s the time. You have a week. Get to it!
