a paler shade of mint & cream….

Paler shades are often said to be the most interesting ones, sometimes we struggle with pale varieties. With pastels, burnt oranges and rose pinks to the colours of the summer we need to get our wardrobes topped up.

If your skin is on the Jane Austin side of argumentative & interesting then opt for pale pinks and lemon yellows. If you a little on the more yellow olive side which us Irish ladies pretend to be consistently topping up those tans…….
This Ivory and cream dress from Ted Baker has us dreaming of summer. A dress resplendent of an era in style that we still seek to replicate the much loved 1950s, very much like a dress Princess Grace would have worn herself.

High round neck with soft extended cape sleeves. The black floral embroidery is exquisitely hand sewn throughout the dress. A miniature box bow ribbon detail sits at the neck and is linked to the same detail at the waist by a line of ribbon. The skirt is in a soft 50s silhouette with hand sewn floral embroidery throughout .

A hemline is a detail in itself …..a line of ribbon sewn around the circumference of the gown approx 3 inches from the edge accentuates the sheer edge of the gown, creating the illusion of Incredible longer legs. Pair with a black sandal or black patent court, incredible options seen last at the bottom of your wardrobe or if you feel like getting shopping check out www.heels.com, amazing and they also ship to Ireland.

The Iivy dress is Currently available at Brown Thomas & http://www.tedbaker.com/uk/Womens/Clothing/Dresses/IIVY-Contrast-Rose-pleated-dress-Ivory/p/133976-IVORY?plpSlots=2

 

Feeling mint to saw the least, then this Ted Baker gown echoes that sentimental entirely….. a high halter neck, with the quirkiest of details. Box pleating all around the collar framing the peep through hands bordered lace detailing along the bustline, enhancing the bodice shape of the dress.

 

The waist is very accentuated here with box pleats sewn downward falling flatly down over the waist and full skirt. The skirt is full and falls softly down from the waist with exquisite peep through detailing at the edging.
