OUTFIT | Trashy Diva ‘Honey’ dress in Jade Watercolor
Happy (belated) Easter, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, if you had time off: ours was super-sunny, which was amazing, and meant that it was FINALLY warm enough for me to ditch the tights, and break out some spring florals – yay!
The florals in question came courtesy of Trashy Diva, whose ‘Honey’ dress is one of my all-time favourite designs. If you’re a long-time reader, you might recall the green satin version of this dress, which I bought for my friends’ wedding (and had much angst about getting into the country on time…). I love that dress so much that I currently have it on display (on a dress form I stole from my mum – sorry, mum!) in my dressing room, rather than hanging up with all the other, lesser dresses, so when the brand asked if I’d like to try the Jade Watercolor version they’ve just released, well, it wasn’t exactly a huge dilemma for me, let’s put it that way.
This dress has exactly the same shape as the original, but comes in a cotton sateen, which makes it a little more summery, and a little less “special occasions only”, which is the case with the heavier, shinier satin of my plain green version. Add in some deep pockets on the full skirt (you all know how much I love a skirt with pockets, right?), and a print which just screams “spring” (And also “Amber”), and it’s basically a dream of a dress. Oh, and it almost matches my much-loved Hell Bunny ‘Paloma’ cardigan: the two shades of green aren’t identical, unfortunately, but they were close enough for a day when it wasn’t quite warm enough for bare arms! (Almost, though: God, I LOVE spring…)
Now I just need another dress form, so this one can go on display, too…
