I put this picture up on my Facebook page during the Christmas and it got quite a few queries as to where the outfit is from so I decided to do a quick post.
This is my true LBD. I got it in Sandro (Brown Thomas) over two years ago. As you are probably aware by now, I LOVE collars! So I was immediately drawn to this dress. I also loved the shape, length and fabric of the dress. It has proven to be a real gem, it's so versatile - during the summer I love to wear it without tights and with heels! However, there was one problem with the dress, the white collar! After the first hand-wash the colour in the dress ran into the collar. So I decided to go to Ann Diamond (an alternations legend in Ballina, Co. Mayo) and asked her could she make a detachable collar for the dress, using the original collar as a template. This made the dress much more usable as it meant the white collar could just be thrown in the machine. The shoes celebrated their fourth Christmas this year! My husband surprised me with these Moschino shoes before our wedding. I have worn them to death. I was actually planning on throwing them out a few weeks ago, but decided to bring them to the shoe-doctor first and see if anything could be done. I really wish I had taken a series of before-and-after pictures! It was like getting a brand new pair of shoes! The hat comes from New Look. I love it but it really only works when my hair is straight!
I hope you enjoyed the post!
Enjoy the weekend.
