The moment I saw this dress I fell a little bit in love. It’s not unusual for me to admire a floral print, nor embroidery, but it’s not often we’re treated to repro dresses featuring the two. Even when we are, it’s not a guarantee I’ll like the specific embroidery design itself, or perhaps the colour scheme, or the dress cut. Thus, when I find one I like I get a little bit excited. This Dolly & Dotty dress offers up both simplicity and contrast, in colours and a dress shape that are easy for anyone to wear.

If there’s one thing for which I can be relied upon, it’s trying out new liquid lipstick formulas I don’t need because a) I already own ‘too many’ lipsticks, and b) I already have 2 liquid lipstick formulas in my collection I absolutely love.

Once upon a time, there was a fair skinned girl with hair red as age-darkened cherries, who didn’t know blue was a shade that, on her, looked sweet and true.
…That girl is me, that realisation came a few years ago, and now thanks to Miss Candyfloss I’m fulfilling all kinds of fairy tale dreams I didn’t even have with this darling Bella dress, a vision made in blue.
Ardent admirers of Miss Candyfloss will no doubt recognise this dress from their Lookbook for this summer’s Fairytales collection. It was launched at the same time as an identically cut dress, the Mary-Beth dress, which comes in a green and grey tartan with bold black accents. At first I was drawn to the tartan iteration, before remembering that I’ve actually been meaning to add beige, brown and grey pieces to my wardrobe recently, which is sorely lacking said neutral tones. With that in mind, I paused briefly to envision a few different ways I might style the piece, then happily clicked the order button.
