Braving The Apocalypse!
It’s lovely to see you and I look forward to sharing a different way of styling an animal print dress that you’ve seen before here, https://donnadoesdresses.com/2020/02/17/different-looks-for-summer🦁🧐🥰/
In Australia we’ve not long experienced hideous bushfires, which the community is still reeling from, only to have to now deal with the dreaded COVID-19 disease which sees us now in lockdown …
I guess for me the social distancing regulations are not too bad because I’m a bit of an introvert anyway and don’t work outside the home, but my heart goes out to so many because these restrictions have meant huge job losses and then there are so many people unwell world wide so I’ve just tried to put on a post that takes our mind away from all of this, just for a bit, and to show my small joys.
I bought this dress for a fab price but I was actually uncertain whether it would deliver for me.
There were a couple of reasons why I was dubious – it’s a 1970’s look, which is not usually my cup of tea, and it’s quite long and kind of baggy … however; I’ve actually had fun styling it a couple of different ways.
I was actually happy with the end result of this outfit and found that the belt gave the dress greater shape and didn’t overwhelm my petite frame and that it was comfortable, practical and stylish fun!
I plan to put this tulle skirt and tulle petticoats with lots more of my dresses and skirts in the future.
I wonder if you like it as much as I do?
Life In Isolation!!
I’ve also included some pics of some of the cute things around our place here that we’re enjoying while being told to be as isolated as possible.
Making The Best Of Things – and Making Cake!!
We are lucky because we live on 150acres of Australian bush and sub-tropical rainforest so we are not exactly shut in, and thankfully although we had bushfires burning only 200 metres south, east and west of our house we are still standing!
Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web and I hope that you are able to keep going and find some peace and silver lining out of this terrible crisis that affects the world at this time!!
