Vintage linen dress

Vintage early 70s linen dress with embroidery

Another linen dress today. This one is an authentic vintage item, the dress used to be my mom's and she wore it in the early 1970s. Simple fabric, simple silhouette, pale blue colour...this simplicity makes the floral embroidery at the top part of the dress really stand out.

Blue linen maxi dress

Summer linen maxi dress

Hello everybody! I hope you haven't forgotten me, at least not completely. I was on holidays in my homeland Belarus. At first I has planned to make a few posts from there but then...got lazy and kind of didn't feel like posting. So, I decided to take a complete break from blogging as well as from social media life. And it was good, somewhat refreshing. Anyway, I am back and hopefully will resume regular posting. And in my today's post I'm featuring a linen maxi dress that I bought in Belarus. My country is known for its linen production and one can find a big choice of linen clothes of good quality for affordable price. So, this dress is 100% linen. It is prone to wrinkle, of course, but not as much as one could expect, not in annoying manner.

Rainbow cows summer dress

Rainbow cows print summer dress

Monsoon has arrived here. The temperature is high as well as humidity. It's hard to breathe in such conditions and one's body experiences a certain level of discomfort. In such weather I want to wear something light and loose...but pretty of course. And this dress meets all the three requirements: it is made from light thin cotton; it has a loose silhouette and thanks to all those multi-coloured cows it looks super pretty!

Embassy reception look

Karen Millen formal dress
When we were invited to the Russian embassy reception to celebrate Russia's independence day I thought about wearing this dress straight away. My daughter brought it to me in February and I hadn't had a chance to wear it yet. It's elegant and beautiful, made from satin and decorated with embroidery. But the main thing in such type of dresses is a fit because if it's wrong it will not look good. And what can I say? This dress fits me perfectly, as if it was made for me.

Wonderland skirt

Printed A-line skirt

When I read Natalia's Wonderland post featuring a link-up inspired by the Alice in Wonderland famous book, straight away I remembered this skirt of mine. Somehow it gives me an impression of the kind of garment that someone from Wonderland could wear. And here I am showing off this skirt and taking part in the link up.
