{Dress - "Belinda frock" custom made c/o Elisabeth Mary Smith; belt - market; floral wreath - ASOS; shoes - Jeffrey Campbell}

Images, as always, by the lovely Love Yaz <3 

 ...And again, it was one of those weeks that passed in a flurry of wonderful events and inevitably, this post has come at a time that is {not so} fashionably late but there are so many gorgeous things in store for the weeks ahead and exciting news impending so I promise you it is worth the lengthy intervals between posts! 

Of all the frocks I have worn on this blog, this one gifted so generously by the lovely people at Elisabeth Mary Smith is perhaps most congruent to my personal style with its overtly effeminate aesthetic and flattering contour, which imparts it with an incredibly high frolic factor {perfect for languorous Sundays spent in mountainous vineyards beneath cloudless blue skies}. In this world of mass production, it is an absolute rarity to find a label that pays attention to meticulous details - from the exquisite bespoke designs tailored to fit you to perfection to the delicate brown paper packaging that induces the childhood giddiness evoked at Christmas. Moreoever, their elegant and classic designs means that you will covet their delightful frocks for many seasons to come. <3

...And further, you may recall from my previous post that I am in the process of economising my wardrobe, wanted to show you how a simple cap-sleeved frock can be styled into a romantic off-shoulder gown with the zipper done up only partially and the addition of a few discerning tucks! :) 

Much love and have a gorgeous week ahead, Mandy. xx
