WHOAH! ONE MORE DRESS ADDED TO THE COLLECTION...

(Look ma! No hands - and almost no arms either! Great posing I have there, ey? :)

Ta-taa: it has arrived, the temptation I fell for: my Avian dress from Trashy Diva!

And it was delivered straight to my door - now that's what I call service! The doorbell rang and there was the postman and he just handed me my dress over. Why can't all things in life go as smooth?

Turned out it was a tiny bit too loose in the wast though so I was thinking of putting some ribbon in the back to chinch it in. However, after some bubbly and crispy at
Punavuoren Putiikki's opening, a whole lot of tapas and sangria there after, an ice cream in the park - strawberry sorbet and peppermint cream. Great combination - and later on a big iced latte on a sunny terrace it fit like a dream! No loose fabric anymore anywhere ;)

But for the record, attaching two ribbons just behind the waist to tie into a bow in the back is an easy way to tuck in a dress a centimeter or two without any needles and pins and cutting. Less risky, easy to detach. Ribbons in the same color as the dress go rather unnoticed but can still make a small nice detail (or if you feel like it, why don't go for contrast colored ribbons as well?)

Oh, and also, since I get the question quite a lot - I can push my pedals perfectly well in my Parikka's. It's not that hard biking in high heeled shoes at all!


(Psst. You can here me quiz at Raio X3m tomorrow on Friday at 14:00 again. Let's see if I can make one more round...)

Wow, that really is an amazing dress. Looks perfect for sitting in the park eating ice cream, riding with the breeze in your hair, or sipping sangria at night :)

Congratulations!

Sal said...

LOOOOVE it! The color is fantastic on you.

Oh, and you are just too sweet to offer to pick up some tassel earrings for me! Sadly, I'm strapped for cash at the moment and have to pass. But THANK YOU, beautiful!

oh darn it looks good! That dress has been on my wish list for ages! It fits you lika a glove! I must say I'm 2/3 happy for you and 1/3 jealous ;0)

Couldn't you take a photo from your closet? I have a feeling it's rather big by now?

Have a nice evening!

That dress is so wonderful!
And biking in heels is no problem. I use heels often when I ride the bike to work, I wouldn't walk all the way to the office in heels but biking's not walking and then I can strut around the office all day :)

Gorgeous dress!
And what a great idea with the ribbon - I never thought of that. I might have to keep that in mind for the future.

Oh, the dress is beautiful! And I would love to eat those things to get some dress more fitting. Unluckily usually I have to say no to those treats for like a month to fit in. :) Maybe I should start ordering and sewing clothes of a bigger size to get to do as you did... :)
