MADE FOR ME / FATTO PER ME

This hand-me-up is called the Francesca Striped Swing Dress.  They couldn't have chosen a better name ....  and a better color. Those of you who have been following me for a long time know how I feel about red.

I took advantage of the sun today to wear this dress. Summer practically never arrived and it's already  almost gone. We've had lots of rain these past few days  and incredibly powerful winds. Trapani is famous for its wind,  it's the "Windy City" of Sicily. That's because the city  is situated between two seas, so there is always  plenty of wind blowing.




Questo vestito si chiama  "Francesca Striped Swing Dress".  Non potevano scegliere un nome migliore ... e un colore migliore. Quelli di voi che mi seguono da tempo sanno che rosso è il mio colore.

Ho approfittato del bel tempo oggi per indossarlo. L'estate che  praticamente non è mai arrivata, sta già per andarsene. . Abbiamo avuto pioggia e vento forte questi giorni. A Trapani c'è sempre vento, molto spesso fortissimo, e questo è  perché la città si trova fra i due mari.

  2. It's a great dress but a bit too large (loose-fitting) for you, dear! You definitely need to eat more :-)

  6. Bonjour,

    Après la longue pause estivale durant laquelle j'exposais mon travail à Gassin dans le Var, me revoilà ! Je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver et de pouvoir à nouveau ouvrir la porte de votre univers...

    En France non plus nous n'avons pas eu d'été... Une très jolie tenue qui vous va à ravir !

    ✺ ❊ Je vous fais de gros bisous ❊ ✺

  8. Most lovely dress and it looks really nice on you - did ya go swinging in it. ha,ha
    The weather here has been a real mixture this summer and we've had very little summer and now the nights are cool as we head into Autumn. I feel as though we were cheated out of summer this year......but then, we might have a nice or extended Indian Summer in November - here's hoping.
