I spent a lot of time on the computer today which left me seeing dots - but no more than I normally see on any given day now (thanks to a great eye surgeon). After adding the beautiful green maxi dress above to my Etsy shop, I thought I'd treat you to the other dotted items available at Duncan Loves Tess. Dots are fun on clothing, but if you are experiencing floaters or flashes of light be sure to see your Doctor!

I found this suit and immediately thought of Linda Evans in the 80's TV show Dynasty. She and her cohort in crime, Joan Collins, wore some of the most glamours outfits you will ever see on prime time and I can envision either one duking it out in this magnificent suit. The suit is made by A.J. Bari, aka Kay Unger, of 100% silk. The jacket sits slightly off the shoulder, classic and romantic. A flattering "A" line skirt completes the suit. Best of all, orange is this seasons hottest color!
For something a little more casual this vintage maxi dress will do the trick. I love authentic 60's Hawaiian dresses and someday will share with you a few I have kept tucked away in a closest for myself. I would have kept this one as well if I thought I could ever manage to squeeze into it. This dress is not made in Hawaii, but the pattern and style would fool most. Made of polyester knit the dress was designed by Ruth Walter.
This skirt has it all, maxi length, high waist, cool cotton fabric. A great 1980's Alexander Campbell design. Add a vintage white blouse and wide brimmed straw hat and treat yourself to a stroll through a fabulous public garden like beautiful Elizabeth Park below.

I've taken a little time off from posting here to work on my Etsy shop and in my garden. Thought I would share some of the beautiful blooms happening today. I also listed some nice dresses and shirts with lots of flowers for those of you who prefer to bring the garden indoors.
