So it seems my Valentine's gift is a new dress from Rockapoodle.
Ray, the owner of Rockapoodle wrote to say she'd love to make me a custom dress, and of course I was delighted to accept!
There are so many fabrics to choose from, but I was a tricky customer. I don't tend to wear a lot of the classic novelty prints anymore (we all go through cycles of style) so we had to spend some time tracking down a print I'd be able to see myself wearing.
We found this fab cowboy print, and ta-dah the dress is here. It's winter, so I've put it with a black jumper and DM boots.
