This frock has very swiftly become one of my favourites. It is a flattering vintage cut in a striking red and black floral pattern. What else could a girl ask for?

I had it on my trademe watchlist and had mostly forgotten about it. I certainly hadn't bid on it anyway. It didn't reach reserve so the seller offered it to all watchers for $60.00. That is more than I would usually spend on a dress over the Internet but I guess she caught me at a moment of weakness. I'm so glad she did too!

The brand is"Heartbreaker" and it fits perfectly. The cut is so good I am seriously considering getting the pattern replicated so I can have more of them in different fabrics. In fact- yes. That pretty much has to happen I think.

I like the detail of the contrasting collar and bands on the sleeves. Also the black band around the waist coupled with a belt in the same fabric as the rest of the dress. Very effective.

It has been on quite high rotation over the last fornight or so. This dress has been worn to dinner, to a brithday drinks, to work, to another dinner.... so versatile!
