green dress & autumn colors

It has not been my best week, as I get a cold, then had to stay at home for some days and felt quite miserable. Yesterday it was cold and rainy, but sun has shined today finally, even if it's still cold (it snowed on the nearby mountains). Autumn was behaving very nicely until last days.
I worn this new dress some days ago. It was bought in June at Spitalfields Market, when we visited London, and it was storaged in my wardrobe waiting for colder weather, as it's made of a thick cotton fabric, very consistent and well made. It even has pockets!. I don't know why I bought a green and brown dress, as these are not usually my favorite colors, but I think that adding some unexpected colors could make my wardrobe more interesting!

No he tenido una semana muy buena, he tenido un resfriado, así que tuve que quedarme en casa unos días y sintiéndome bastante pocha. Ayer hizo frío y estuvo lloviendo un montón, pero al final ha salido el sol esta tarde al final, aunque sigue haciendo frío. El otoño se estaba portando muy bien hasta hace unos días.
He estrenado este vestido, que compré en Junio cuando estuve en Londres, en el famoso mercado de Spitalfields, y se había quedado guardado en el armario, esperando tiempos más frescos, porque es de una tela de algodón gruesa, muy consistente y bien hecho. Si hasta tiene bolsillos!. No sé porqué me compré un vestido verde y marrón, que son colores que normalmente no son de mis favoritos, pero creo que estos colores sorprendentes podrían darle un poco más de vidilla a mi estilo.

I've been working on a new sewing project, which I call my 'frankenstein dress'. Mr.A. says it's simply ugly, but I have become fond of it, as it's kinda kitschy fun. What do you think?

He estado entretenida en otro proyecto de costura, que llamo mi 'vestido frankenstein'. Mr.A. dice que es simplemente feo sin remedio, pero yo le he tomado cariño, me parece de un estilo kitsch entrañable. ¿Qué pensáis?

  2. I love your new dress and the print is very reminiscent of 1950s prints. Green and brown are lovely colours together.

    Your Franken dress is amazing - can't wait to see you wear it!

    Have a great weekend

  5. That dress is lovely, Monica, just the shade of green that I adore. I hear you about your cold and feeling miserable. I just recovered from one myself. xxx

  6. Your new dress reads more green than brown, and it is a nice shade of green that works so well with the orange cropped cardi! Men are so conservative when it comes to women's clothing; I think your "Frankendress" is very cool. Sorry to hear you have a cold - hope you get over it soon.
