She may now fall under the genus 'surgeroid', but I don't care, when it comes to hot tamalies Raquel Welch has never lost her heat and spice. She married in 1967 in this little white crocheted number and captured the zeitgeist of the age.
These dresses say St Tropez; good time girl, artist boyfriend and frozen margaritas... I'm in. The oligarchs out there can sail on.
Cashmere by Tania - I am still kicking myself for missing their grey Zoya dress.
I felt that the squares and circles were a bit too 60's retro for me, I don't mind listening to a bit of CCR but I don't want to wear them, so when I spotted this dress on Cashmere by Tania's site, it was love at first sight.

This is size medium, the large would probably have been better, as it clings a little to my lumps and bumps, and industrial underpinnings aren't quite my thing on a warm summer's day. The cotton is as soft as a snowman's breath and it's as comfy as a well worn t shirt, which is all I want from my clothes.
I'm tiny so it's not quite as short on me as it is on the models.
It took me ages to pick out the right bare feet to accessorise this dress.
If it's true that, "accessories separate us from the animals" then I am completely feral.
