So, I hardly ever wear this dress and it just sits there on its hanger and I reach for it once in a blue moon. I wasn't even planning to use it this month.
This can be a toughie to wear because of its body-con nature and I have to be mindful not to slouch when I'm wearing it as even the tiniest lump and bump shows to the full... and even though the harsh sun in Australia can be very unflattering in photos (like most Aussies I've learnt this the hard way so please be kind if you do care to comment!) I posed in the full sun for this one to show the lovely folding and draping of the design; being a black dress these features wouldn't show up in a shady photo. The artful folding of the thin silk jersey around the midriff area that becomes a random geometrical frill along the opening edge is my favourite feature of this dress. Come to think of it, the only feature of the dress...! It is a very simple design.
I am wearing black today because I am attending a funeral.
