Chocolate Galaxy


Hello all,
I hope August is treating you well!



This is the first Lindy Bop dress I've worn on the blog (not my first ever though...) and I got it even though it was a wee bit big for me. I couldn't help it. Something drew me to this dress! It reminded me of something I couldn't quite put my fingers on.



I only discovered after I'd worn it what it had reminded me of. And I discovered it while scrolling through YouTube, being bored as ever. I sometimes decide to watch scenes from films that I love, and I was watching a scene from Funny Face, when in the Suggested Videos list my dress appeared. On Audrey Hepburn!


The above video is a commercial for Galaxy Chocolate and they produced these scenes by CGing (is that a word?) her face on to a lady's body. And isn't it marvellous?

I had seen this commercial ages ago and completely forgotten about it, but at the back of my mind I had registered the dress she wore in the video, and recorded it to my memory.



I was more than delighted when I realised that my dress was similar to a dress that Audrey Hepburn might've worn! I was so close to buying the navy one instead as well, but in the end decided on Chocolate Brown, what are the chances!

As for Lindy Bop - I love their garments! They have sales all the time and they really do slash the prices.

I wish you all an amazing and beautiful day!
Much love,

  4. LindyBoop is my favorite (I am wearing a LB dress right now!) - their sales are so great and their pricing is already fair! I also fit better in their dresses so I am more likely to shop there over anywhere else. Love this dress on you! It looks comfortable and light and perfect for warmer weather!

  5. I'm convinced you have a instinctive tendency to be drawn to anything remotely Audrey! The necktie adds that extra bit of elegance to an already beautiful dress! You looks as graceful and gorgeous as always!

  6. Very, very pretty outfit, sweet Mona. I love brown clothing and accessories immensely (especially since it tends to be kinder to my complexion when worn near the face than black does) and start reaching for it all the more as summer winds down.

    Many hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you so much darling Jessica!
      Ah yes, brown isn't quite as harsh as black, so I totally understand why you go for it.
      Hope you have a great day!
      Much love

  8. I had seen this commercial too, ages ago! The dress is super pretty, and does remind of the dress 'Audrey' is wearing in the ad! The neckline is really pretty, and I love the chocolate colour, makes a change from what we tend to wear generally (I don't have a lot of brown clothes!)

    1. Thank you so much lovely. I don't have much brown either, so it was a really good addition to my wardrobe.

  9. I remember that commercial! It's crazy how they are able to do that! (I totally buy CGing as a word, haha.) I love the scarf that came with the dress too! It's so unique and vintage looking! I really need to give Lindy Bop a try one of these days..I keep hearing such amazing things. And your dress looks just fabulous!
