A Fabulous Fifties-Inspired Red Dress

In my previous post I shared some photographs along with my outfit from my daughter’s 16th birthday meal on Friday.  Well here’s another one! This is from Saturday, a glorious spring day and one spent at my parents’ home for a family celebration. My dress is from Alie Street, a brand which designs and manufactures its clothing in Britain and one which focuses on dresses. It has quite a celebrity following and counts television presenters Susanna Reid and Kate Garraway as fans. These are dresses for all occasions and are classic styles that can be worn over and over- just the sort I like. This dress has a touch of the fifties about it with the fit and flare style and the shaping in the bodice. It’s a heavy ponte jersey so falls beautifully too.

The pineapple and honey bee bracelets are by Danon at Lizzy O and are both available in silver with matching items too. The other bracelet with my initial was a gift from my daughter brought back from when she went on a French exchange trip and I treasure it.
