Black Frock Friday

This frock would be up there in my top 5. I bought it from the Paddington Antique Centre back in 2011. It's a European cotton dress, with pink ric rac & sweet chevron type stripes on the bodice, in pink & blue floral on a black background. I think it's actually my most expensive dress as well at $45, but it was worth every penny as I'm sure I'll wear it for years to come.

  2. That frock has got it going ON! It's fabularse, darling! Perfect style, and with the gorgeous ric rac,floral and chevrony stipey bits it just makes me Squee! The little bag is a honey! I have a small collection of wee bags, I should show them off sometime.

  3. Ohhh now that's a black frock I'd like and wear with a gorgeous floral pattern like that. The blue and pink really is a sweet combo and the ric rac adds a touch of fun. You truly are the queen of accessorising, once again you've pulled it together with perfection. X
