It has started to warm up in the Netherlands so I have ditched the tights since a couple of days and cycle through Amsterdam bare-legged. I do use self-tanner to prevent people from getting blinded by my legs but I really don’t care if my skin is still in its winter shade.
Just in time for spring, a few gorgeous dresses came my way. And I’d like to share them with you……
Hearts and found
I can’t get over the quality of the dresses made by Heartsandfound. These dresses are made with such care, I love it. Big bonus for the wide selection of dresses to choose from and the fun fabrics they have. I get greedy every time I visit their shop on Etsy (here), it’s like a candy store for me!
Recently they made two dresses for me. One dress was even designed especially for me, since I wanted a fitted bodice with a boat neck:
How fun is this print?? The shape of the dress is everything I want in a dress. Shop the fabric here. The dress is a hybrid between this dress and this co-ord.
The second dress is their Penelope dress. The fabric is so fun and feminine. When I wear it, I feel like a southern belle, ready for a picnic with her beau!
The bodice had been made with double fabric, so no see through. The skirt is fully lined. The straps are of course adjustable. And it has pockets! Shop the fabric here and the dress here.
I have been a fan of the prints of Palava for a while. Each of their beautiful prints is hand drawn by their creator, Bryony. The SS18 collection was inspired by all things under the sea. When I saw this lobster dress, I was sold. The dress is called the Beatrice dress and comes in other beautiful prints too.
The dress is made of the softest cotton and fully lined. You can shop the dress here.
Zoe Vine make beautiful dresses inspired by vintage couture. The dress I picked has the most amazing print. It’s called the Maisy bandeau dress and comes in a butterfly print as well.
This Japanese garden print is so beautiful! The dress has sold out quickly but is still available in a few sizes and in a wide range of sizes in the butterfly print. Shop here.
Last year I received this gorgeous dress from Havren Clothing. I fell in love with the print and the shape.
This dress has been re-stocked! Shop here.
Then a couple of weeks ago Havren asked if I wanted to pick another dress. So I decided to ask for the same dress, in a different colour. This baby pink, or blush, is a beautiful shade for when I have a bit of a suntan.
This dress has the most beautiful details on the back, see here!
Now hopefully spring will be warm and sunny, can’t wait to wear these gorgeous dresses!
