The day has finally come when your crush returns from sea! You failed to confess your feelings before the ship’s departure, but now you stand at the edge of the dock, in the navy-and-maroon anchor pattern of this pale-sand dress by Miss Patina, determined to divulge your feelings! This UK brand was formed by a crafty team that gathered their expertise in retro-inspired, contemporary clothing while attending the London College of Fashion. Anxiously jiggling a knee over your T-strap flats and under the clean hem of this lined frock, you smooth your hand over the striped ribbon piping that borders its bow-decked, creamy sailorette collar at the first sight of arrival. As the boat draws nearer, you re-tie the woven belt that sits over your fitted waist, re-apply rouge lipstick under your boater hat, and fill your lungs with fresh air with which the words you’ve been waiting to say will escape you!
