Merry Christmas!

 Happy holidays everyone, it's been a long time since my last entry, hope you're all well, I am yet to catch up with your blogs, but decided to finally break my self imposed exile. I had wanted to do it for a while but couldn't bring myself to post - it's amazing how sometimes the easiest tasks seem mountains to climb.

Anyhow, this is a time for merriment and in that spirit here is a cute little dress I wore this Christmas. It is my mother's latest creation, a 4ply mercerized cotton knit that draws its inspiration from the central illustrations below.

I opted for functional buttons in mother of pearl with a matched buckle. I have to say I am really happy with the choice of design, I love that low back and there is a tiny little detail my mother added in the shape of cream vertical stripe on the pocket (barely visible in the pics) which made me squeal with delight upon its discovery :).

 That's all from me for now, Merry Christmas to you all!
