What I Wore: Made To Measure

Vietnam, well Hoi An specifically is well known for tailoring. You can have pretty much anything made, copied or duplicated and if you bargain hard, for a very reasonable price. We spent quite a lot of time having things made- especially Tom who had suits made for work and a coat replicated from an old one that had all but worn through. This was in essence a test piece for me, as I wasn't in the market for as much formal wear as Tom, and I have to say, I still smile when I see it hanging in the wardrobe and think of our trip.

Dress, made for me in Vietnam
Blue heels, Clarks Chorus Voice (2014) 
Mouse flat shoes, With Love From Hetty & Dave

I've been wearing it with both flats and heels as you can see. Being an idiot, I've just realised I forgot to take a close up picture of the fabric which is tiny little blue interlocked "C's. A Bit of a Chanel-alike but given my name is Chloe, it still seems fitting.

Now, if the rain that's pouring down this morning could just disappear off, then I might get a bit more wear out of this very summery dress....
