I love Adele, Marvin Gaye, Beyonce, Jessie J & Lenny Kravitz,
and right now I’m listening to Lana Del Rey.

Favorite things to read on blogs:
I love personal stories from bloggers, shared with personal things,
photos, what they’re wearing, what they’re eating, travel journals, etc.

Favorite hotels or holiday destination:
I’ve never been, but one the things on my bucket list (yes, I made one)

Sleeping in, baking, blogging, meeting up with friends & drinking wine.

Hi I love that Jane Norman dress. I looke don the website but I dont see it. Did it have a style name?

Paris Pastry said...

Well I bought it at the beginning of the Summer, so it must have been a Spring/Summer dress, so I'm guessing it's not available anymore :( I don't know the style name.

How long ago did you get that red dress? It's gorgeous! Do they still have that dress at the Jane Norman store/site?

Paris Pastry said...

Hi Heidi! It's actually the same as the front; a v-shape that goes down the back.
