The secretary

I bought this dress on eBay about 2 years ago.  But somehow every-time I tried it on it was never quite 'right'.  The material is really heavy, almost like a tennis skirt.  And I loved wearing it round the house but for some reason I could never find the right occasion to wear it.  And so it sat in the wardrobe gathering dust, until now.  There wasn't any 'right' occasion, I guess I just grew into the dress - it feels 'me' somehow now.  Do you ever get that with clothes?  And on arriving in Wales I found it fitted in perfectly with the 1950s vibe of our cottage, bonza!  

I don't think I mentioned on here that the Bot proposed with the temporary ring as he knew how much I wanted to chose 'the' ring.  Well this weekend we found 'the one'. Tres exciting! I'll be showcasing it on here very soon - it's currently being re-sized - but I can confirm that (surprise, surprise) it is vintage and I LOVE IT!

Hope you had lovely weekends xx
