A taste of the good life

I am still trying to catch up with my outfits from the summer and this outfit was worn on a day spent in Bournemouth and Poole.

 
 
I purchased this Jonathan Logan dress on the Facebook group "Ooh La La."  Whilst I don't find a lot to purchase on this group, I do feel particularly pleased when I get a good bargain like this (£25!) from a UK seller.  Jonathan Logan is one of my favourite 1950s designers and there is a plethora of dresses on Etsy with this label.  I have a couple more Jonathan Logan dresses, which I aim to feature on this blog soon! 
 
 
This last photo was taken in Sandbanks -  the fourth most expensive place to live in the world!  It was lovely strolling around and taking a peek through the big gates of these mansions.

  4. That dress is really fabulous. I love the picnic blanket print, and the shawl collar is great detail. Congrats on an awesome find.

  5. You are bringing summer to us again!!! Nice!
    I have not bought too much on OLL, things really are too fast there! But it's also a great place to sale stuff.
    Black and white with a touch of red... a true classic, love it!

    1. Yes, I find OLL to be too pricey as well! But there can be some good things on there... If you manage to dedicate a good portion of the day to being on there!
