The Secret Garden

When Sarah Louise of Slubird asked if I wanted to model this dress for her shop, I had just watched The Secret Garden and it reminded me of something Mary would have worn. You can buy the dress here, and wear it to explore your own overgrown forgotten garden!

*Oh, and the film is on Netflix Instant Watch if you want to watch it ;)

What a beautiful dress! You've just reminded that I've never actually read The Secret Garden, despite being English. Hopefully the library will have a copy!

aww I remember when I saw that movie in theatres. I still love the Hallmark version of Secret Garden from the 80s best though!! Probably because I was raised on it though.

Love your outfit! Looks gorgeous. That is nice that you always model things for people's shops.

Oooh, I used to love the book but I actually don't think I've seen the film, I'll have to put it on my list!

That is such a gorgeous dress, I love the collar.

Emma said...

Oh I love The Secret Garden, I used to watch it all the time when I was a kid, I always wanted a red beret like Mary's.

Beth said...

Love the dress, loved the book, loved the movie (and the musical... anyone else remember that? or is it just me, maybe because I had hazel eyes at the time and that song stuck in my head?).

Lainie said...

I loved that book. It was one of my favorites as a child, because it wasn't "dumbed down" for childern like so many are! I will have to check out the movie.
Great dress, so cute!

The Collar of the Dove said...

Anaïs said...
