I love the flattering look of a crossover neckline.
It lengthens my neck and brings the attention up to my face, which is what I want!
This @josephribkoff dress is made from a heavy jersey. All opinions are my own and there is nothing in this post which has been gifted to me ….
It’s beautifully designed and fits well over the bust with soft ruching around the waist:
Those large prints again!
I love the large, island girl prints on the shoulder, sleeves and lower skirt.
The band of black from mid-thigh to under the bust minimises the mid-section.
Simplicity of Accessories:
I wore bright magenta suede heels, a simple silver bracelet and a garnet necklace and earrings … and then added a sweet white with black polkadots umbrella into the mix.
There’s another way to wear the dress:
In this look, I’ve worn a fun, chunky necklace and cute silver robot earrings – as a fan of Science Fiction and a child of the 1960s my love of robots has been ongoing and I now have quite a collection!!
Getting – and keeping – your sexy back!!
I’ve talked about the breast cancer stuff in a previous post, and not to dwell on it, but I’ve felt the need to make a concerted effort to embrace my femininity and sexiness and a dress like this certainly achieves this purpose in my book!!
Lady’s Underpinnings …
A post will follow that will cover the underclothing that I have worn in this post under this gorgeous dress!
It’s important to have those sensual fabrics and pretty designs right next to the skin as a reminder of ones femininity, so stay tuned!!
Living My Best Life!!

Thank you for your kind comment Christine – and while you are here – I have had difficulty in commenting on your beautiful posts. I wrote quite a long comment on the one about your beautiful staycation but for some reason it wouldn’t go on or I must’ve done something wrong … it’s annoying because what I love about following lovely folk like yourself is being able to engage. I read all your posts and love them. Greetings from Australia 🧚♀️❤️🙏🏼

Not sure if I mentioned it before, but the parasol is adorable! I have one! Do you use sunblock?
