Every year a dress from the Spring Summer collections hits me in such a way that I end up obsessing about it. Imagining myself wearing it to weddings, parties, the post office, cleaning my house, etc. I imagine what shoes, jewellery and bag I would wear it with, how I would do my hair and make-up. Inevitably the dress is far too expensive for little old me so I never buy it. Last year it was a pink neoprene dress by Acne which I still dream about and will probably still be dreaming about when I’m 95, such was its stunning perfection.
This year it’s an Alice Temperley dress. Usually this label is far too demure and not half edgy enough for me, but this dress is such a beautiful colour and the sheer parts are so sexy, that I have fallen in love. I wouldn’t wear it with a bee keeper hat and nude peep-toes though. Instead I’d go for killer black stilettos and matte shocking pink lipstick.
