Here's some other Lesley frocks that I auditioned.

I really loved doing that round-up last time, so here's some other frocky news from friends around the world:
Heather says this is her current fave dress - "coral from bisou bisou and this is frolicking on the beach in the Algarve, Portugal last night after sangrias......yes, I could stay here forever! "

Love this picture last year of Wendy and Dani BP getting together in Dani BPs place in Canada. You will love both their blogs; Dani BP has introduced me to the wonder of Brora and leather gloves and Wendy is wise about many things, including shopping and vinegar.

Dani is scrupulously strict when adding another frock to her wardrobe: fit, print, quality of material, shoe options; everything has to align - this J Crew option went back.
|Dani sent this back
Alexis Grace never posts any photos of herself so I asked her to send me one and tell me what she's up to: "I've been spending my (eternal) Singapore summer exploring South East Asia (Bali and Thailand down, hopefully Kuala Lumpur in the next few weeks before heading off to Germany to spend time with my family), working all hours - I am the "Corporate Director of Social Media" for a luxury hotel company--- sounds fancier than it feels given the fact that I work from home and social media is a 24 hour beast. I also have a wonderfully adorable but equally demanding 20 month-old in need of constant entertainment. Did I mention she is potty training? Fun times. " She's wearing H&M - "I love it when I find something like this there!"

Janet said yes to her vintage Maxi on her trip to Kauai "because it would have been wrong not to."
