So, who's been enjoying the mini heat wave this week?
If I said I have / am, I'd be lying. It was 35 degrees here yesterday, and it was like hell on Earth. My house was like a furnace, and I got so hot and over-heated that I felt sick the entire day and like I was going to pass out. I couldn't even go live in the shower or lounge around in my underwear until the evening as I had to wait around for a delivery all day and look after the pup. It was horrible. Don't get me wrong, I love the sunshine, but I just don't cope with the heat very well. I'm always over-heated because of chronic pain, so when it's a million degrees I just end up feeling super sick and uncomfortable; I'm best suited to the cold. I really feel for all of you who had to work all day in that heat without air-conditioning! How the hell do you guys in tropical climates cope with the heat for months on end?? I don't think I could do it!
It's thankfully a little bit cooler today, and there's a nice breeze coming through the patio doors as I type, so I don't feel so uncomfortable... yet. I can actually bare to turn on the laptop, which I couldn't do yesterday, so I've found time to put together this week's wish list. I haven't spent as much time online due to the heat, so I haven't done a lot of nosing around online this week, and I've only really been lusting after Lady Vintage's gorgeous new dresses, so this week's wish list is dedicated solely to Lady V.
I love these new tropical-print Isabella dresses, especially the kingfisher and flamingo print designs. The sweetheart neckline, capped sleeves, and flared skirts are a cute combination, and the best part is they cater to sizes 8 to 28/30!
Normally, I'd rejoice at finding a beautiful collection of dresses with sleeves, but the thought of sleeves in this heat is almost too much to bare. However, the Maria dresses are gorgeous and I can see myself wearing them to death when the sun turns its thermostat down again. The 'violet rose & grey leaf print' (#1) is my favourite. They come in sizes 16 to 30/32.
With their cute short sleeves and big flared skirts, the Estella dresses look much better suited to wearing in the Summer sun or during any weather, really. I love the shape of these frocks, and the cross-over detail over the bust. These dresses are available in sizes 16 to 30/32.
