Dress #244 Gendarmerie

This bright blue and black color combination---especially with silver or gray---has caught my eye recently. New and trendy, right? Well, maybe not. As I walked by our local police station on my way home today, I noticed that one of the uniforms is this color combination. Satin ruffled ribbon, silk and a silver ribbon snippet.

  2. I want one ;-) The ruffles are perfect! And I, too, have been noticing this great bright blue - a favorite of mine.

  3. You know, I think I like this one because it reminds me of the very large and full and flouncy skirts from the Fashion Show you attended this week. They were somewhat tiered and very bohemian, but so full and long, unlike skirts of the previous season. This one, however, is more elegant and mature. Bu still the same silhouette. I think the influence may have been subliminal, but very effective.

    1. Although I did not start out with that influence, I agree it is there. I thought the same thing when the dress was finished.
