People are strange

The paw under the door... (The name of a potential thriller?)
My dog, Amber, likes to be involved. In fact, bring out a camera, and she'll be there! Not to actually have her photo taken, no, no, you silly humans, but to run around like a crazy-dingbat (now with added tail chasing and catching!). Even after nearly a year of blogging, Amber still struggles to comprehend why I insist on prancing around for the camera. (see below)
 Yep... the girl is crazy....
Nevertheless, I shall prevail!
Today I'm wearing a recently altered 1950's Batik print dress from Bali, given to me by one of my Mum's friends (it previously belonged to their mother). It was much too big for me, but after some very basic adjustments I made it work. I was actually quite proud of my altering, given my meager sewing skills! I paired it with my favourite 1950's velvet hat and a less special cardigan and belt.


Love x

Thankyou for all the lovely comments!
PuppyLovePrincess, the shade is Russian Red by MAC. It's a little expensive, but completely worth it!

I love the batik dress, so fantastic, and the belt goes so great with the ensemble.
