And now for the latest instalment of Dresses With Sleeves. The March issue of Vogue says fifties-style shirtwaister dresses are a woman's best friend. And here's Aggie MacKenzie with her new best friend Samantha Sung (available from Fenwick and KJ's Laundry). Whatever happened to Kim?
Sarah is an English woman in Australia and author of the Semi Expat blog. She's wearing a seven-year-old M&S Autograph frock, 'It immediately makes me feel dressed up. I particularly love the scalloped lace along the neckline. Very flattering. It seems to work well with opaque tights and shows of the pins, which are still reasonable. I heard that they're the last to "go" as you age, so I'm getting them out whilst I can!'
Grammy Award-Winning Adele likes Dresses With Sleeves too. Though I doubt she'll be wearing Chanel anytime soon.
And I can't go anywhere without mentioning the Baftas. Meryl Streep was dressed like a winner in her Vivienne Westwood corset gown and matching jacket. And don't you think Tilda Swinton looked magnificent in Celine? She didn't pick up a gong for We Need To Talk About Kevin but definitely should've won an award for The Best Hair.
