Avertissement! Once you slip into this navy-and-cream number from Miss Patina, you may feel an overwhelming desire to book a ticket to Paris or to travel back in time! 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. Picture it - you're standing on the riverbank in this elegant, nautically-inspired retro number, waiting for your long-at-sea lover or family member to disembark. Your special one notices your stylish dress from downstream - the foldover, ascot-style collar, the contrasting buttons on the collar, and 3/4-length sleeves. Your look holds water because you’ve paired it with a cloche hat and oatmeal-colored Oxfords. A long embrace, followed by a longer morning of coffee and croissants at the local cafe - it really doesn’t get much better than this. So what if, in reality, you’re just going to pick up your sister at the bus stop? No reason that you can’t let good fashion put an imaginative spell on you. Remember that saying, 'Absence makes the heart grow fonder?' You'll live it every moment you're not wearing this dress!
