 I bought this dress to go to a family party one Christmas.
It has proved to be a versatile dress.
I have worn it sleeveless, with a sweater over and under and today it comes layered over a blouse.
When I wear this dress I feel very serene.
I wore it a lot the year I did my post graduate teaching qualification (PGCE).
That was probably the worst year of my life.
As I struggled to keep control of a class of rowdy year 9s during countless observations where my every move was crticised in the minutest detail I felt far from serene.
But this dress kept me calm.
Serenity in a dress.
Dress - Dorothy Perkins

  1. Serenity is an enviable quality, not one I think I will ever achieve... Pretty frock, looks lovely over the sheer blouse! xxx

  2. What a lovely description. That sheer blouse looks fantastic under that delightful dress, almost like a 1940s tea dress! x

  3. a nice name for a pretty dress. i love the floral pattern.

  4. And calm you look too. Beautiful design

  5. It works well layered, I love it when a piece is surprisingly versatile.

  6. It does look serene and very feminine too.


  7. You are good at picking appropriate names for your dresses!
