I've been having some pretty swell luck at the op-shops recently! This is one of my favourite finds ever - look at that gorgeous print! You may have noticed, I am a sucker for anything with a Japanese theme. My dream is to find one of the souvenirs that American soldiers brought home from the pacific - this dress isn't one, but it's close enough for now! Chinese New Year happens to fall on Valentine's Day, I'm hoping The Boy and I can drop in on the festivities - I want to stock up on lacquered parasols and fans!
It's 100% cotton, which is just perfect for the disgustingly hot weather we've been having recently. I'm hoping for cooler weather by sunday; the dress I had planned on wearing is satin (and lord knows that will not mix well with 35 degree heat...)
The label of this dress is marked "SSW" - is anyone familiar with that acronym's meaning?
I hope you are all having a good week! I have to think of some good picnic foods to cook before Sunday; any suggestions? Please keep in mind that I'm domestically challenged - anything from books with titles like "Kid's Kitchen" probably makes for a good start!
