girly glamour...


Every woman needs a piece of clothing which makes them feel particularly gorgeous; as though they were a princess off to a ball to dance the night away. This beautiful dress that JJ picked up at a shop specialising in vintage clothing does just that. With its floaty tulle skirt and strapless bodice it is just too pretty to be shut away in a cupboard but, unfortunately, this is where it presently resides. In a magazine world it would be displayed artfully on an old tailor's dummy or hanging from the side of a stunning armoire, but our homes are real ones in which too many dust collecting items is a bad thing. Besides which, our husbands might start thinking that they too could display their clothing on pieces of furniture.... hold on a minute... they already do!!

It would make a lovely wedding dress...although perhaps that's just my next dream.

You two will have to throw a party so she has a place to wear it. Build a whole theme around it. It could be so much fun and of course you'll have to go out and find one for yourself that is just as pretty!

If CSI were to dust MOTH's wardrobe door handles for his prints they come up with a big fat nada! He's guilty like the rest at making an artform out of piling his clothes on top of each other in the strangest places.
Beautiful dress JJ, it almost has a gossamer quality about it.
