White Broderie Anglaise Dress – The weekend Post


Hi, Everyone. I’ve had a super busy week away in Essex visiting all the family and looking after grandchildren. I haven’t even managed to reply to my comments this week yet, but let me thank you all and I will crack on with replying to them after this post has gone out. Today I’m sharing with you this White Broderie Anglaise dress that I picked up at Kempton market last year.

if you’re a regular reader you will know how much I love to find a bargain!

This dress was found at Kempton market just before winter on a stall that I visit without fail as soon as I arrive there. This dress was found hanging on the rail and it was filthy from falling off the hanger at some point. I loved it immediately and pondered for a while wondering if I could get the marks back to its original White.

I asked the market trader how much he wanted for the dress and when he replied £2.00 I snapped it up thinking only two pounds lost if marks don’t come out. If you’re a regular reader you will know how much I love to find a bargain and this turned out to be a beauty!

Today and any summer’s day is the perfect time for this White Broderie Anglais Dress

I love the detailing on the front and it’s fully lined too. Today and any Summers day is the perfect time for this dress and it’s not going to date, is it? The lovely Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb feature her White Broderie Anglaise dress a week ago. Catherine said that she has had the dress for some time and it looked like it had been bought the day before, it looked fantastic and not dated at all, so I know that I will be wearing this for some time. Just add the up to date accessories.

If you ever come this way to near Kempton race course on a Thursday, do stop by and visit the market. I get so many bargains there. I’m leaving a few nice suggestions below though.

I have an exciting announcement!

    This dress would be perfect with you in front of a beach or walking along some Greek cobblestone streets. The perfect dress against a blue background.

    You look fantastic Laurie. I’m afraid white and me just don’t do too well together. I just need to look at a it and smudge marks and dirt will appear.

    It’s such a pretty look for summer Laurie and really suits you. All for such a bargain price of 200 pennies too!! Thanks for linking to #DreamTeam x

    WOW what a stunning dress and such a steal for only $3.00 USD. Love it so much and how you styled it. Next week, I am doing a very special collaboration with 10 other bloggers where we are all wearing White Dresses for Fall so check it out. Also, is the linkup supposed to be on the bottom of the post cause I don’t see it?!

    Glad you enjoyed time with your grand-kids Laurie. =)

    I used to deliberately wear white for mucky occasions like curry or bbq. I could bleach it. That dress is a great shape for you. Perfect length. Congratulations on the link up. That’s a fun idea. Here’s to new friends. As you know that’s why I blog.

    I love it Laurie and perfect for me now that we are moving into Spring and Summer. Love the pop of orange in your sandals. Thanks for sharing at #overthemoon link party and have a great week!

    Lauri, I’ve learned something new. I had never heard of Broderie Anglaise. Eyelet, yes but i suspect eyelet is a much heavier fabric. You’ve got me going to eBay and investigating one to have for next summer. The Kempton market sounds fantastic-I don’t have anything like that around here. I will check out your linkup.

    Beautiful dress Laurie, I have been after a nice cotton dress all Summer. This would have been perfect! Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays.

  17. September 5, 2017 / 1:47 pm

    This is a beautiful look!
    I LOVE a white dress on a warm day… so pretty.

  18. September 5, 2017 / 10:55 am

    #dreamteam This dress is so perfect. Wish I’d found it this summer!!

  19. September 4, 2017 / 9:28 am

    That never looks like a market purchase, I adore it! Popping by from #CreativeMondays

  20. September 4, 2017 / 12:25 am

    Such a beautiful white dress and you look lovely wearing it! I also love finding a bargain, so I understand your joy at finding this dress. I will be looking for your new link party on Thursday the 7th! Thanks for offering it.
