Summer Dreams

It’s really amazing how difficult it can be to find that special, perfect summer dress. The one you can wear with anything, the one that deserves THE special place in your closet. We had one, ankle length, with a tiered, romantic skirt and a fitted bodice with spaghetti straps. Alas, after over half a decade of loyal service, the dress has went the way of eternal hunting grounds, bearing on it the marks of summer strolls, frisky kittens, and just plain old wear and tear.  When we saw the new Spin Doctor dress, we were speechless! There it was, our perfect summer dress, reborn and even improved!  So in honour of our best beloved, and now sadly departed, perfect summer dress, we decided the best thing to do would be to break in the new dress with some nice new styling ideas!

On Wednesdays we wear black
