The Baroness is Back...

Hello, lovelies!!!  I'm back from a much-needed and much-enjoyed vacation, and looking very forward to catching up on all my favourite blogs.  In the mean-time, I must note that I didn't get to the gala as intended, due to a nasty summer cold bestowed on me during a visit with my darling little niece and nephew. However, I did snap a pic of what I WOULD have worn if all plans had gone as intended: a 1930s crocheted evening gown, which is my most prized vintage find to date.  In the next post, I'll bore you with a few photos of my lovely time at the cottage before I was leveled by that cold.

BEAUTIFUL! What an absolutely stunning dress, I think it's my favourite of all your dresses. I too have been away (due to un-inspiration though) but I have been lurking and reading your posts!

What a dreamy dress!! So, so lovely, and the most perfect colour. Even Ginger Rogers would be jealous of that frock. :)

thank you all so very much! It was sweltering the day I took the pic, so excuse the slightly peeved facial expression. I do hope there will be other gatherings to which I can wear this treasure. In the mean-time, I plan to bring it out of storage and stare at it often ;).
