Full Length Elegance

With the rise (or is that ‘fall’) of the maxi style over the last few seasons, the wearing of long gowns for evening events has been reinstated as an appropriate style of frock. I’ve always been a fan of adhering to dress-codes: if I’m told Black Tie is required, I wear long. And so I’m delighted to see such elegance and beautiful gowns have returned to the scene, without so much as a whiff of the puffed-sleeve meringues of yesteryear.

Oh for an occasion to swan about in such gorgeousness.
