A taste of summer is upon us, albeit a slightly temperamental one – stormy clouds gathering as it hots up. I love to keep cool and breezy in a loose summer dress and this keyhole neck number is making me come over a little Daisy Buchanan (ref. The Great Gatsby) in mood if not entirely in flapper 20s style (…)
Dressing up for evening cocktails, petals strewn beneath high heels, turbulent romance and existential turmoil et al. Funny what a dress can bring upon you. I sized up for extra swathes of material and louche looseness making my highest heels (YSL vintage, one of my best finds) imperative.
The YSL shoe and traditional Portuguese earrings latticing combined with the strong print and colours of the dress conspire to make me feel so very art deco. See, an outfit can truly be so much more than the sum of its parts. The magic of styling and a fecund imagination…
This week and next, Wallis is celebrating dresses (see their edit and 20%off and on Twitter #wallisdressedit) and I have teamed up with them to giveaway this mood-altering (for me, at least!) keyhole maxi. All you need do is enter via the rafflecopter widget below – open internationally and the winner will be announced on Saturday 31 May. Good luck!
