    Sooo lovely! I love William Morris patterns and this one is a cheekier version. It that a Martini glass? Cocktails and Fruit?

    Someone I know would really rock in this gown. The designers have been really going at it with prints. The last several you chose to bog were just fabulous.

        Mmmmh, moi j’adore le chocolat à l’orange (ou à toute autre chose d’ailleurs MDR), mais avec un père Noël Milka, ça devait être une “tuerie” XD Oh, j’ai encore envie de chocolat (une fondue en plus, trop “mortelle” hihi) ❤

    Absolutely adore William Morris prints + patterns but can’t say they’ve ever made me chuckle as this {inspired} one does…
    those cleverly added cocktails and monster strawberries make things far less formal…
    and a tad more fun–quite creative indeed 😉
    Another fabulous post~

      Thanks so much for another inspired comment ! Yes, Matthew Williamson’s take on William Morris is unique and so fun, I mean these giant strawberries are to die for !

      Thank you so much ! The dichotomy between the funny pattern and the rigorous cut is to die for ! Very royal indeed ! XOXO
