I LOVE this dress. I had been having some bad days lately where I've been hating the way all of my clothes look on my body (I'm a bigger girl, roughly 180lbs and 5 feet tall) so I ordered this dress as a hope it'll cheer me up and boy did it. It's so flattering on me, and fits perfectly. I was so excited by how much I loved this dress that I immediately ordered another one in another color. I wish there were more color options (I would die for a black one with flowers on it) so I could wear it everyday. I don't remember the last time I bought something that I loved this much and that made me feel this confident. My only issue is I'll need to hem it a little since it just barely drags on the ground, but that's standard for being short ... full review

In Iris Murdoch's novel, The Bell (1958), an art student named Dora Greenfield bought "big multi-coloured skirts and jazz records and sandals". However, as Britain emerged from post-war austerity, some Bohemian women found influences from continental Europe, adopting, for example, the "gamine look", with its black jerseys and short, almost boyish hairstyles associated with film actresses Audrey Hepburn (Sabrina, 1954, and as a "Gréco beatnik" in Funny Face, 1957) and Jean Seberg (Bonjour Tristesse, 1957 and A bout de souffle, 1960), as well as the French novelist Françoise Sagan, who, as one critic put it, "was celebrated for the variety of her partners and for driving fast sports cars in bare feet as an example of the free life". In 1961 Fenella Fielding played "a mascara-clad Gréco-alike" in The Rebel with comedian Tony Hancock, while, more recently, Talulah Riley replicated the look for scenes in ITV's 2006 adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Moving Finger, set in 1951.

A biographer of Edward Burne-Jones, writing a century after Shaw (Fiona MacCarthy, 2011), has noted that, in 1964, when the influential Biba store was opened in London by Barbara Hulanicki, the "long drooping structureless clothes", though sexier than the dresses portrayed in such Burne-Jones paintings as The Golden Stairs or The Sirens, nevertheless resembled them. The interior of Biba has been described by the biographer of British 20th century designer Laura Ashley as having an atmosphere that "reeked of sex ... [It] was designed to look like a bordello with its scarlet, black and gold plush fitments, but, interestingly, it implied an old-fashioned, Edwardian style of forbidden sex with its feather boas, potted palms, bentwood coat racks and dark lighting" MacCarthy observed also that "the androgynous appearance of Burne-Jones's male figures reflected the sexually ambivalent feeling" of the late 1960s.
^ Suzanne Fagence Cooper (2010) The Model Wife: The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray, Ruskin and Millais. Florence Nightingale's observations regarding the foxgloves are noted in correspondence of her friend, the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell, whose acquaintance with Effie Ruskin dated back to their schooldays. However, it is unclear when Nightingale herself met Effie: Cooper, op.cit, footnote 85. (Gaskell was especially well connected. In 1861, for example, she was part of a house party at Fryston Hall, Yorkshire given by Richard Monckton Milnes – a persistent suitor of Florence Nightingale – that included also the MP William Forster, Austen Layard, who excavated the biblical city of Ninevah, and the American (Union) Minister in London, Charles Francis Adams. Gaskell was among a group visiting nearby Pomfret Castle when Adam received news of the Trent incident that, in the early stages of the American Civil War almost brought Britain and the Union to war: see Amanda Foreman (2010) A World on Fire.)
How much will it hold? It will hold enough to sneak in treats for a few of your kiddos at the movie theater. OK....On a serious note, You can easily fit a wallet, keys, cell phone, snacks, a little make-up bag, and probably a little more. It holds quite a bit. I would say triple the amount of the leather crossbody purse I am currently using. PLEASE look at the picture attached. I tried to show the patterns and size to the best of my ability.

A dull complexion that won’t go away even with maximum highlighter and bright blush has a likely cause: dehydration. Skin that’s lacking moisture has exactly the opposite look of a lit-from-within glow. But there are super-simple ways to keep your complexion hydrated from the inside out so you can wake up with healthy, naturally glowy skin every day.I have also searched skin care products and get these online stores amazon and mygenericpharmacy.
By the turn of the 20th century, an increasing number of professional women, notably in America, were attempting to live outside the traditional parameters of society. Between 1870 and 1910 the marriage rate among educated women in the United States fell to 60% (30% lower than the national average), while, by 1893, in the state of Massachusetts alone, some 300,000 women were earning their own living in nearly 300 occupations. The invention of the typewriter in 1867 was a particular spur: for example, by the turn of the 20th century, 80% of stenographers were women.
By the mid-1980s, the American singer Madonna had turned the bra into a positive, even provocative, fashion statement. Madonna's flamboyant and gritty style (notably seen to bohemian effect alongside Rosanna Arquette in the 1985 film, Desperately Seeking Susan) was, in turn, a precursor of so-called "girl power" that was associated in the 1990s with various prominent young women (such as singers Courtney Love, who played the 1999 Glastonbury Festival in a headline-grabbing pink bra, and the more commercially oriented Spice Girls) and offbeat or quirky American television series (Xena: Warrior Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Caroline in the City, Sex and the City).
UPDATE AUGUST 22 2017 Yes the straps are adjustable but still doesn't go as low as I'd like it to (naughty grin). Maybe my chest is just too large for it to hang as low as i would want the chest to hang. I wanted to update this review and warn people so they don't do what i did. DO NOT PUT THIS IN THE DRYER! MINE SHRUNK! I recently wore it and forgot you're supposed to line dry. The flow is ruined and it comes much higher above my ankles now!!!! I don't like it the same. PREV REVIEW REMARKS :Feb 2017 I got the V- neck spaghetti strap blue polka dot dress. Flowy type maxi dress. I ordered size XL and it fits. I'm 5'4. 225lbs. I have hips but i'm pretty proportionate throughout. So no one area of my body is much ... full review
