48 days to go: Oasis Poppy Dress


I wore this dress on the very first day of my challengehere and again here .
I love the dress but I was struggling to find some flat shoes to wear it with.
I am sure I would wear it more often if I had the right shoes.
Any suggestions?
I fell in love with this dress when I saw it in a magazine and bought it straight away.
It cost £80.00 and I was horrified when I went shopping with Jenn a few months later and it was on the sale rail for £25.00!
Still, I had it when I wanted it.
If I could I'd spend every day in dresses, party dresses, evening wear, day dresses - any dress!

Dress: Oasis
Shoes: Clarks

I LOVE this dress! I can not believe that you only have 48 days to go! You have done so well, are you going to keep going??

Christina Lee said...

I am loving all of the dresses you are wearing Jane!!! as far as shoes- how about some flat white sandals of some sort?

Penny said...

This dress is fabulous and it has a retro feeling to it. I think the shoes you have on make the outfit very whimsical...especially due to the color. Purple and pink...love it! I think if you wanted to switch it up for evening; you could go with a pointed kitten heel look [if comfort was key].

Stacy said...

It's such a gorgeous dress. Perhaps pink sandals? Or a metallic?

Boutique Girl - I may well have to keep going as I don't seem to have much spare cash left at the end of each month now!
Christina - maybe when I can start buying again. I think white would be a good summer colour.
Penny - it is based on a 1960 pattern from the British Museum of Fashion in Bath.
Stacy - my daughter has a pair of metallic flats I may give them a try.
Sharon-Rose - thanks. I love the LWD too.
Sher - sadly those flowers have gone now but next year I will make sure I wear the dress in front of them!
Thanks Candycane

Sheila said...

I love it with the purple shoes! What about a silver or pewter shoe? Or go a little kooky and do a contrast in a green? The only colour I wouldn't do is white (a little grannyish).

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have become flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.

Paris was occupied by Russian and Allied armies upon Napoleon's defeat on the 31 March 1814; this was the first time in 400 years that the city had been conquered by a foreign power.[41] The ensuing Restoration period, or the return of the monarchy under Louis XVIII (1814–1824) and Charles X, ended with the July Revolution Parisian uprising of 1830. The new 'constitutional monarchy' under Louis-Philippe ended with the 1848 "February Revolution" that led to the creation of the Second Republic.

A greenhouse is a structure with different types of covering materials, such as a glass or plastic roof and frequently glass or plastic walls; it heats up because incoming visible solar radiation (for which the glass is transparent) from the sun is absorbed by plants, soil, and other things inside the building. Air warmed by the heat from hot interior surfaces is retained in the building by the roof and wall.

Rome, the capital of Italy, was for centuries the political and religious centre of Western civilisation as the capital of the Roman Empire and site of the Holy See. After the decline of the Roman Empire, Italy endured numerous invasions by foreign peoples, from Germanic tribes such as the Lombards and Ostrogoths, to the Byzantines and later, the Normans, among others. Centuries later, Italy became the birthplace of Maritime republics and the Renaissance,[7] an immensely fruitful intellectual movement that would prove to be integral in shaping the subsequent course of European thought.

Archaeological and genetic studies have indicated a human presence in the northern Yukon region from 26,500 years ago, and in southern Ontario from 9,500 years ago.[15][16][17] The Paleo-Indian archaeological sites at Old Crow Flats and Bluefish Caves are two of the oldest sites of human habitation in Canada.[18][19][20] The characteristics of Canadian Aboriginal societies included permanent settlements, agriculture, complex societal hierarchies, and trading networks.[21][22] Some of these cultures had collapsed by the time European explorers arrived in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, and have only been discovered through archaeological investigations.

The local success of a junior football side, Chatham Excelsior F.C., encouraged a group of businessmen to meet with a view to creating a football club which could compete in larger competitions. New Brompton F.C. was formed at the meeting, held on 18 May 1893.[2] The founders also purchased the plot of land which later became Priestfield Stadium.

The Cogan House Covered Bridge was constructed by a millwright who assembled the timber framework in a field next to the sawmill, before it was reassembled at the bridge site. It was the only bridge on Larrys Creek that survived the flood of June 1889, and one of only a handful that were left intact in the county. Although the bridge used to carry a steady flow of tannery and sawmill traffic, the clearcutting of the surrounding forests meant the end of those industries by the early 20th century

The purported servicemen appear to be aware that they are being filmed.

Pentagon spokesman Capt John Kirby said in a statement: "We are deeply troubled by the video. Whoever it is, and whatever the circumstances - which we know is under investigation - it is egregious behaviour and unacceptable for a member of the military."

Marine Corps headquarters at the Pentagon said in a statement: "The actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps. This matter will be fully investigated.''

Goats are being hired to do the work of men in a neighborhood just outside of San Diego. The fires that occurred in Hillborough four years ago destroyed thirty homes, most of which have been rebuilt. While contractors were rebuilding the homes, nature was regrowing the grasses, bushes, and shrubs. The area is now so overgrown in brush that it again poses a major fire hazard.holiday to barbadoselectronic cigarette

Communications with Homs have been cut off since Tuesday night, and the scale of the operation remains unclear.

It comes amid reports of a new draft UN resolution on the crisis, calling for an end to violence and access for aid.

The draft, which is still in its early stages, focuses on humanitarian aid for Syria, in the hope both China and Russia, which have opposed previous votes, will back it.
