I bought this dress at a market in Goa. I just loved the fabric, although I'd rather not think about the circumstances under which it was most likely manufactured. I expect it's no worse than your average high-street brand production facility (which sadly is SO not an endorsement). Looking at the haphazard sewing I can't imagine what manic speed somebody cobbled this dress together at. I doubt anyone could work at such a rate without sewing their own fingers to the fabric every once in a while, which ouch! once again is not exactly a happy thought.
So yeah, I lurv this dress but I am also kinda grumpy I bought it in the first place :P
But what's done is done, so I might as well make the most of it, hey? And what better day to wear it than a lazy, unexpectedly sunny bank holiday Monday!
The weatherman threatened downpours, thunder and flash floods but instead the sky was the bluest of blues. Aaah. Balm for the soul ;) Oh, what a difference a little bit of sunshine makes!
