I never wear solid black. It's so boring. But the splash of blue roses make this an acceptable addition to my vintage wardrobe. I searched on Etsy until I found a HUGE rose hair flower, because a plain-ish dress like this screams out for large bouquets in the hair.
Doing the Flamingo.
Unfortunately, it ripped during the first time I wore it, and not along a seam, so I have the expensive task of taking it to my dressmaker to try and be fixed.
Yes, it looks like I'm demented but it's a photo showing my blue petticoat! I know it matches and looks pretty even if nobody else sees it!
