Freddy Allen Frock Friday

I count this frock as a special one in my collection, but I've not worn it until now. I bought it from a vintage store on K-Road in Auckland (which is probably my favourite shopping destination) on our holiday last year. The brand is 'Freddy Allen' made in Auckland. It was only $5, because it had some stains along the hem & needed a seam repair. I figured I could take the hem up & repair the seam easily enough (well Mum could). I love the bow detail along the neckline, & of course I am a bit obsessed by the red, white & navy combo too. But most of all I love that it reminds me of a wonderful holiday with the Captain. Just your regular attire for monthly blood tests & brunch!
