I added beige accessories because the only thing better than strawberries and chocolate is Neopolitan ice cream. Damn, now I'm hungry!

The details were difficult to photograph. The centre of the flowers are a plastic stud surrounded by a rhinestone in each petal. The pale brown colour combined with the smooth surface of the fabric was challenging to show in detail. I hope this is enough for you to get the idea. It is a very nice dress, even if it is in need to a steaming. Fresh from the dry cleaners I'm sure it would be lovely.
A one-piece girdle/bra get-up would solve that muffin-top issue (standing up straight wouldn't hurt either) as these dresses were made with the expectation of such serious foundations being worn. I'm not willing to go there. but it is worth keeping in mind if you're tempted to purchase a close-fitting dress in a thin fabric, and you're self-conscious.
"Self conscious?" I think not.
I planted out the bright red salvia plants yesterday, so now we'll just sit back and wait for the hummingbirds to arrive. I'm keeping the tomatoes and herbs indoors a bit longer as I don't trust our weather.
Hope your weekend is treating you well.
