Caught in the crossfire

October 23, 2009

Caroline was a black satin kind of girl. A strappy sky-high stiletto loving Martini-drinking kind of girl. And Georgina, well, Georgina looked very much like a floral organza kind of girl. A ribbon sporting, slipper wearing, Babycham-drinking kind of girl.

All of which could explain why they’d never really seen eye to eye. But then there was also their longstanding rivalry for the affections of the Honourable Tarquin Ponsonby-Smythe. Their fight at the Prince Rupert Ball would never be forgotten, especially by those unfortunates caught in the crossfire of chrysanthemums and roses….

It’s that pattern time of week again- Hurrah!

(As ever, click on a pic for the listings…)

    Ah, but who’s the mystery girl in blue?

    I love these dresses. Would it be weird to wear these kind of dresses during my day-to-day activities? I really want to, you know..

      I suspect the mystery girl in blue is just about to sneak in and steal the Honourable Tarquin Ponsonby-Smythe while our other gals are flinging foliage at each other (or “Saying it with flowers”!)

      I don’t think wearing these kind of dresses would be weird at all, if your everyday activities involve being chauffeured from one red carpet occasion to another. And if those aren’t your everyday activities, what the hell- wear them anyway and make the world a more beautiful place :)

    I have wondered where you find all these lovely vintage patterns?

      Wow, good question- a lot of them have been in my pattern stash for years now and it’s hard to remember! I guess it helps when family and friends know that you have a weakness for patterns and snap them up for you :)
