This dress is very textured. A friend has loaned me a book called the 'Secret lives of dresses'. It is a novel and in parts the dresses tell of their experiences as if they are speaking. I am going to read it this weekend. It sounds fascinating. I like the history of the clothes I collect. However most are from second hand shops...so I often get a feeling of 'needing to be loved' coming from them...I like the idea of giving them another run at 'past glory'. I have a bright pink dress the same as this one. The brooch is one I wear often.
