Written by the owner of this dress:
A name Betty’s pop gave her at the age of 5. It was a time in her life where she was smitten with anything blue. Whether it was aqua coloured treasure found on the beach, a cake swirled with blue icing or the clear azure sky on a hot summers day – she could stare at the colour blue for ever.
Over the years growing up, Betty lost her love and obsession for blue. Distracted by mustards and chocolate browns of the 1970’s, she was content following the trends that clashed with her beautiful ice blue eyes.
Whilst having a family dinner one night to celebrate her 21st birthday, her pop pulled her aside to discreetly pass on a birthday present. It was a neat box tied with a lush blue ribbon. As Betty opened the box and pulled back the tissue paper, a beautiful blue paisley fabric appeared.
It was a little blue dress. It was a dress that triggered nostalgic memories from her childhood, the type of memories that bring the smell of sea breeze, the taste of a sweet cake and the feeling of summer days that never end.
