I have a collection involving embroidered bunting, sailboats, polka dots, Scottie dogs, hummingbirds and flower garlands. Naturally, I fell in love with this decadently detailed cardigan from Voodoo Vixen.
Yesterday at midday we wandered down to Hyde Park. I put on this dress which I have never had the opportunity to wear, because it doesn...
