Dammit Darlene!

You can get away with anything in a floral frock.
Makes a girl look like a nice, sweet thing from a country town who works part-time in the local library.
But if that frock should be from the early 1960s and cut tight around the knees with a bit of a cape, well, there's gonna be hell to pay.
Say hi to Darlene, an oh-so-innocent cotton summer frock.

Darlene loves turning up empty-handed at picnics, goes to the best Tupperware parties in town and never buys a thing, always forgets her lunch money and doesn't mind at all if some one nice from the library wants to spot her lunch.  Or a tenner for that matter.

Darlene is also a wee bit of a fibber.  Just little ones mind you.  She's just the type to force a gal to take the last cookie out of the jar, leave just before it's her round to make an urgent nail appointment, only to give her admirers a goodbye wiggle out the door.

Of course all is forgiven, thanks to Darlene's charms.

From all angles, Darlene has a lot to offer a girl.

This lovely little frock was a gift from the kind and generous Cry of Thru My Mind's Eye.
I've called her Darlene and there's no going back after the reactions from the public at large when I wore her two days in a row.
I kid you not, I saw a fella sitting outside a cafe drinking coffee and he missed his mouth.  
Oh dear.
I blame Darlene.

Who me?

Thank you so much Cry for this wonderful gift. 
Darlene will always have a loving home:).
Desiree xo

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh This must be the best dress ever, my dear Desiree.
How I would love to have that coffee with you. I keep my fingers crossed and hope that one day I travel the world visiting and hagging my dearest friends.

LOL- secret cape! I love Darlene!!

Darlene is all minx - demure in the front, sex bomb in the back with all that naughty sheer drapery.

Bless Coffee Man's no doubt somewhat scalded chin - if he can't handle a hot drink he sure as hell can't handle a hot dame LMAO!!!!!

It may have been Darlene who turned his head but it was you inside it that made him miss his mouth you are stunning you remind me of Marylin Monroe. You wear vintage with such style, beauty and grace. Love the blue hat with the greens and oranges its a great combination. dee x
