looking forward by looking back. .

There are few things that I like quite so much as a full skirted dress. There’s something about the fitted waist and the billowing skirt that just appeals to me in waist that a pencil skirt or an empire line cannot. With the possibility of petticoats or even a structured cage underskirt, there’s more than just a hint of romance in the cut of the fabric.For some reason I’ve always associated longer hemlines with Summer, and shorter ones with Winter, and as the days very steadily get longer, I can begin to look forward to huge 50s skirts little cardigans, and who knows, maybe even sunglasses!
