Isn't this dress just perfectly...October? I had high hopes for getting some pretty seasonal pictures of it outside, under the red-leaved trees, maybe with a dusky sunlight shining through the branches... Yeah. That didn't happen. Cause October. While it might mean pretty colours and soft light, it also means wind and drizzle and, as of last weekend, fewer daylight hours. So I had to settle for my usual living room location pictures. Meh, it still looks pretty.
My fab new dress came to me courtesy of Nomads. A rather awesome ethical clothing company with roots in India, it specialises in Fair Trade and organic garments that are right up my street. Think cord skirts, richly coloured knits and delicately printed tunics. I'm wearing the Melhia Shirt Dress here in Rust, which has two huge plus points - it's fully lined and it features that all important, often overlooked feature of women's clothing. Pockets! Fair warning though, it was a little snug across my chest so I went up a size for a more comfortable fit. I had to pair it with my Mother-made cardigan and my new Office boots - I still haven't decided if I'm actually keeping the boots (yup, I totally have two other pairs on the way) but after seeing how great they look with basically everything I own, I may have to reconsider my options.
