I wore this amazing ORANGE poppy print 50s inspired frock to e's wedding celebration this past Saturday. I am blogging out of order so I can show you this dress while they still have them in stock (my size is currently sold out). I have been following Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust for a while now, so when she posted on Instagram that she had designed these adorable dresses...I had to check them out. And, orange! I died. My favorite color, the color of fun!
First of all, the fabric is lovely...a heavy cotton sateen with a slight stretch. The colors are exquisitely vibrant...& the bold pattern is the ideal tiny flowers here. The fit from the waist down is excellent, however, I am pear shaped (55-50-64) & not as well endowed as most girls my the top is not as fitted as I'd like.  I am considering having it altered rather than send it all the way back to London, especially since I'm not sure the next size down wouldn't be too tight at the waist. The size chart stated this dress  measured 58-52-free, so I would say it's accurate (& generous) & you should trust it. This gorgeous dress is well constructed & I loved wearing it with Anne's petticoat that Kate bought from our garage sale last year...& now belongs to me.
elly & Josh got married in a small ceremony at the library in January...on pi day, we celebrated with them at a brewery. Pie! Key Lime was my favorite...but I only tried 2 as I was full of deviled eggs & beer. elly & Josh like Star Wars. 
It is always a joyous occasion when your friend finds someone that they want to spend the rest of their life with...but seeing elly happy is extra special to me. I worry that fabulous people won't find love because they are too introverted (me & all my friends) to share their fabulousness...but she found the right guy who appreciates her amazing elly-ness. 
Awwwww, love. Me & Super Boo, Jason & Kate, and Toby & Angie. 
And they all lived happily ever after. The End.


  1. Ah it's so good to see you in this dress! You look amazing and I love the matching shoes. I'm hoping to get one of the Lady Voluptuous dresses next month for my birthday if I'm a very good girl. ;)

    1. Thank you so much, Leah. The dress is magnificent. Which one do you want?

  2. This dress is fieeeeeeerce! You wear it beautifully. The colors are perfect on you, and vibrant orange is not easy to wear! The color of fun is right! The wedding looks so sweet. And the pies, oh the pies! Also, I adore the three-panel photo of you three couples. So much love and laughter!

    1. Aw, thanks Liz! That was the best wedding I've ever been to.

  3. This is the place for a beautiful wedding. The wedding reception ceremony was held in the dining hall, which commands a breath-taking view of the city. I only wish I appreciated it more when I was there. Oh well. You live and learn.
