If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a hundred times: I love border prints. I’ve gushed about landscape border prints here on the blog before numerous times, but I come across stand-out floral border prints less often, though I love them no less. Therefore, when I saw this rose border print Sweet Pea dress by Miss Fortune, I had all the love for it. I did my usual of talking myself out of the purchase because I’m saving, but then, a ha, I had to return something more expensive to a different store, so hello Sweet Pea! Welcome to your new garden. Or, rather, corn field.
Sometimes you see a skirt and you know you want it right away. For me, that often happens with landscape border print skirts. I find border print skirts are so uniquely vintage in style that they capture the attention and imagination of people from all walks of life. When I wear one out and about, a middle-aged lady might might stop me the pedestrian crossing to fawn over my Italian landscape skirt. A trendy guy my own age might pause on public stairs to let me by and tell me as I go that he thinks my outfit is great, with the skyline of Paris swishing at my knees. The worker behind the supermarket till might take a moment to ask about my Venice city skirt before we begin ringing up my groceries. People just like a good landscape print, I think. So it’s no surprise that as soon as I saw this Miss Fortune Amsterdam print skirt I was smitten, and so too have been many people that I’ve encountered while wearing it.
