Five Dresses



As much as I would have liked to pack 14 dresses for the forntight I decided to limit it to five.
One of them you have already seen - the little white dress.
But with a colour theme of red, white and black I picked out my favourites including the versatile American Apparel Dress which I wore four different ways.
1. This DVF dress was acquired on eBay in 2005 and is made out of silk. I have worn it around three times a year since and I love the colour and the fit.
2. This was a last-minute buy from Oasis on the day before we flew out. It was reduced from £50 to £10 and I love the blue and white stripe, the origami style front and the halter neck.
3. The American Apparel Dress - what can I say £28 for 15 dresses!
4. My Holiday Hero or shoudl that be heroine - Joe Browns dress.
5. My annual holiday indulgence - this £6 red polka dot dress from Primark which I bought in 2007 and is still (against the odds) going strong.

  6. I've been enjoying all your holiday photos. It's so great to see you looking so happy and relaxed, and I sense that you got to spend a lot of time just lounging in a swimsuit in or near the water. That's what it was like when we were in Jamaica. I ended up packing more outfits than I needed, because except for at breakfast and dinnertime, we weren't wearing much. Best vacation ever!
