Vintage patchwork dress

It appears thnat this dress is jinxed, every time I wear it it rains, or maybe I always pull it out when it rains to cheer me up? I almost got outside pictures when I wore it this time (for a birthday night out), I was actually out in the lane near my house with my tripod when it started bucketing it down. If I had got ready half an hour earlier I would have managed, but as it was, all I could do is race home before my hair got completely soaked and de-straightened. So gloomy looking bedroom pictures it is, plus a bonus one of dave who had just got his hair cut.

    It's very cute and certainly very cheery! It's raining here too, it has been for the past week or so… I love the rainbow ring!

    That picture of you in that stunning dress with your beautiful moggy by your side must be one of most favourite pictures of you ever, Franca! I loved your hair tutorial too but I tried to leave a comment and just couldn't. x

    The dress would cheer me up too, the colors are so bright and fun. Can I say how much I love your ring and earrings. Great choice with those accessories! 🙂

    Gorgeous.  I love the dress and I like that you didn't try to downplay all the colors by wearing neutral tights.  I love the red tights and turquoise earrings with it – they're just perfect.

    The dress certainly is very cheerful and I love how by pairing it with red accessories you've made the red of the dress more prominent. My own bad weather outfit (which seems to be rather heavily relied on this being the UK!) is a bright pink and turquoise pop art jumper dress worn with bright turquoise tights and comfy black wedges.

    aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!  I used to go to the fabric shop on my walk home from school to rub up against rolls of this fabric when I was nine!!!!!!  I wanted a dress like this more than anything and I'm afraid seeing this has confirmed that NOTHING has changed.  You've killed me Franca! Total amazing-ness! xoxoxoxoxoxo

    And also those earrings are just darling.
