I foolishly promised to take part and I am not being allowed to forget it, so here is my first (and possibly only) offering for Wardrobe Wednesday.
Now every month there is a theme to Wardrobe Wednesday and this month its "love to love", which is pretty appropriate for this dress.

- It was originally bought 11 years ago in a boutique style shop in Amsterdam's Kalverstraat for my cousin's wedding (a celebration of love).
- At the time I was a doc martins and purple combat trouser wearing archaeologist, so it was VERY different from my day to day style, but I loved that it was a fitted dress which was made for my figure (i.e. for someone with both hips and a waist).
- I love that 11 years and two children later it STILL fits and flatters!
- I also just love the embroidery and sequin detail around the bottom of the skirt
I accessorised with my favourite Ola Gorie silver earrings and pendant, Which are based on a design from the Book of Kells
I must admit that this dress is one of those dresses which has hung in my wardrobe and has only been worn on a handful of dressy occasions.
When choosing what to wear for our bloggy Valentines baking swap yesterday (more on that soon), Rascal told me that I HAD to wear a dress as she was wearing a dress. On a whim, I decided to get this out and match it with a shrug/ bolero (which was bought on sale from Steps 4 years ago for another wedding).
