The Roads Are Unending

There are a couple of things that dresses really need and rarely have: pockets and collars. The slightly sailor-inspired collar on this dress made it irresistible to me. The pattern on this dress is also pretty special and goes so well with my newest coat.

*gasp* Wow and wow the dress alone is brilliant, and how it compliments the coat deserves another wow. They are made for each other!

I am ALL ABOUT pockets in dresses. Skirts, too. Makes me wonder how I managed without them, so I'm glad they've started getting more common.

Definitely everything should have pockets! And that's a very sweeet collar!

I can't be more agree about the pockets. Being a girl who wears dresses at least 4 times a week, that's the only think I miss on them & probably the main reason why I wear trousers some days. PS. I really like the pattern mix & blue looks so good with your red hair.

This is smashing! I love the contrasting prints in the same color group. That is pure styling genius! I'm in love with the print and style of your vintage dress and that coat is a head turner too.

@ronni, I'm ok with being "pinned" as long as my blog name is listed and they link back. I definitely want credit, as I take my own photographs and it's rather a labor of love to run back and forth for a self-timer (especially on winter days). :)
