Right, so this is probably the 20th time you’ve seen this dress pop up in your blog roll, but it is so pretty, I hope you don’t mind starring at it again! I can’t believe I almost let the chance to enter Grosgain’s contest to win this lovely, lovely summer dress custom made by the super fun & talented Loose Teeth slip by. Apparently, I wrote the entry in my head and only dreamed I had actually posted it here. *sigh* Sometimes, I am a blogger of very little brain.
But back to the dress. Seriously, what is not to love? Between the retro vibe, eyelet underskirt, the spaghetti straps complete with bows and the fact that it is made from a blue, yellow, white & red plaid seersucker, this is a summer dress for every girl. It brings to mind fireflies, popsicles, watermelon and sitting on the porch while singing songs like a Disney movie from the 60’s:
*sigh* I think my ideal grandfather would be a combination of Ed Asner, Burl Ives, John Wayne & my dad. That grandpa would’ve called me “kid”, sang his own version of “Lavender Blue”, would rant and rave over how many clothes we youngsters have and wondered why I needed a new dress—and a few days later the above seersucker loveliness would have shown up in a box on my front porch. I never knew my grandfathers as they died long before I was born, but think that save for the folk singing aspect, they would’ve been exactly like my imaginary ideal.
