Just a quick extra post today to mention this extremely good indigo floral jacquard dress from Gap. Just ignore me if you’ve done all your summer dress buying, but if you have a need for a hard working mid summer tunic shift dress, then you might like to think about this one.
I am something of a denim fan, indigo is probably my favourite colour and once you throw a floral into the mix -a woven jacquard floral at that -in a good quality fabric, then I’m pretty much sold.
Now I didn’t try this dress on, but it looks very good both on the hanger (nice fabric, well made, good shape for those no longer sylph-like, elbow length sleeves, great back zip) and on the mannequin. Check the length, I reckon anyone under 5ft 4 and it’ll be close to the top of your knees. Maybe more challenging for tall people who don’t like to show too much leg, but I’m 5ft 7 and when I held it up to me, I was looking at a perfectly respectable 6 inches of space above my knees. it’s £49.00 and goes up to a size 22, available here.
And for anyone who bought, loved and wore to death the lepoard print slip ons from last year, time to replace them with these go-with-everything denim ones? (£29.95 here) They come in the indigo floral print too (although promise us you wont wear them with the floral dress, that would be too matchy-matchy and just wrong).
As I said, just a thought….
