    1. Ah thanks so much Willow! My partner has always called this my 'naked' dress, but it wasn't until I saw these photos that I realised just how revealing it is, and that's with a slip on underneath!

  3. It's a dress that does indeed fit like a second skin - I love the cut out back especially. In fact, I think that's my favourite evening dress shape, with wide-cut, high neck line and shoulder revealing at the back.

    1. I agree, there's something mysterious and glamorous about a backless dress, a particular 1930s sensuality.

    1. Thanks Sue! What I love about the bracelets is that each one reminds me of a different woman in my family.

  11. Not many people could wear that dress the way you do, ahhhhhhhhhhhh
    It enhances your perfect figure. You remind me of a preraphaelite lady.

    1. What a fabulous compliment, thank you my dear! I've always loved the Pre-Raphaelite style (infact I'm distantly related to William Morris and his Pre-Raphaelite model wife Jane on Kiki's side of the family....)

      Have a great weekend lovely Sacramento!
