“It’s alright, the camera’s talking. Even if I can’t be sure, memory tells me that these times are worth working for.”

Last month, I brought you an interview with the fabulous Debbie, creator of Duck & Duffel and blogger friend extraordinaire. I was so happy to have the pleasure of showcasing her new range right here on Polkadot Pink because if there’s one thing I have a mighty weakness for, it’s a handmade dress. A unique, quirky, beautiful handmade dress at that. So, when Debbie gave me the chance to play dress up in her new range, I jumped at the opportunity. Two weeks have passed since road testing the Sarah dress and my love has only grown stronger.
Every once in a while, there comes a dress that you never want to take off, ever. I mean, just look at this beaut of a dress. If ever there was a dress made for me, it has to be this one. Oh how I wish. Actually it was made for the lovely Sarah of A Million Dresses, my favourite Twitter enabler and clearly a girl with excellent taste! Monochrome, midi length, vintage camera print, 60’s collar, bow detail…it’s like a checklist of all my favourite things. Too much of a good thing? In this case, NEVER. Oh Sarah. I think I’ve developed my first girl crush!

Whilst I’m only looking after Sarah and taking her for a spin, I haven’t worn the dress for very long at all. But, it’s long enough to know we’d make lifelong friends…or at least until she grew tired. What I love about this dress is that it’d look equally as good with a pair of tan sandals as it would with a pair of heels. Versatility.I couldn’t resist pairing the monochrome with these tangerine orange heels, the cheapest but brightest pair I own. Now, like any lady, Sarah isn’t cheap. But, you have to consider that the fabric is designed by Debbie herself, the dress is designed by Debbie and the dress is made by, you guessed it, Debbie. There’s a whole lotta work that goes into these dresses. They’re definitely one of a kind, investment pieces to treasure.
