Indian Long Gowns
by Anne Marie | Necklace combining antique conus shells used as currency over the centuries in Mauritania, together with three spectacular antique spindle whorls from Mali. Although often collected and strung as beads, whorls were originally used as counterweights to help spin thread. Made of clay and stone and incised with geometrical patterns, they are recognizable by their enlarged central hole. Recent excavations in the old city of Djenne show whorls to have been used at least since 1000AD
This was the first Summer Chiffon Dress that I ever came across that I simply adored. I believe I owned just one chiffon dress that I ever loved when I lived back in England and it was white with a Cross-over bodice and crystal pleating made up the skirt. I always wore it when I wanted to impress and it always did. I love the feel of chiffon against the skin especially in the summertime. It's very soft, silky and cool to wear. This White Dress with Pink Fuschia Flowers is lovely. Evie Miller.
