Black Gold

There are a lot of great color combinations out there - I don't think I could pick a favorite. But if I had to, black and gold would be in my top five! And mustard can often stand in for gold. I love the contrast of sunny and dark, of warmth and cool.

I am also a big fan of embroidery. Some people may think it is stuffy, but I think it can add wonderful details, and, if done right, can even be a little edgy. This dress already has a bright color, ruffles and a print. So why not add some embroidery on top of all that?!?

Notice the daffodils in the background above? We have been having lots of April showers... and we are starting to get the flowers!
