It had been nearly a year since Nick (MusoPhoto) and I had shot together, but we finally got it sorted. For the past few years I’ve been absolutely desperate to shoot in one of the beautiful Rapeseed fields that sweep across the Buckinghamshire countryside. Unfortunately, I’ve been too disorganised for the previous years to ever get something together. Thankfully though, Nick and I pulled it out the bag this year! Although the crops are still immature at this time of the year, the result was everything I’d hope for and more. And what better opportunity to showcase this beautiful creation by Hearts and Found.

If you’ve not heard of Hearts and Found, my first question would be “where have you been?”. Based in Vietnam, and the baby of Marjorie, H&F is a personal business that provides second to none service. I’d been wanting to order a piece for a long time, but frankly found it too difficult to choose. I’m indecisive at the best of times, but faced with dozens of dress designs, skirt suits, play suits, skirts and tops in an equal number of stunning fabrics, it was a slightly daunting task.
I eventually settled on the Bonnie dress, in solid Jade Green, since I knew that this would co-ordinate well with my current hair colour (yeah, I’m that girl). Drawn to the pussy bow neck time, voluminous skirt and capped sleeves, this was the perfect dress for work and play.
Best of all, Majorie offers a made to measure service….so this dress literally was made for me! Standard sizing betwen XS to XL is priced at £76.18. For an extra £9ish you can have your dress made in your exact measurements.
Shipping is more on the pricey side, at approximately £20, but then it’s flying from Vietnam! Marjorie kept me updated on every step of the process. With an email confirming my order and double checking my measurements, my place in the queue and an estimated wait before completion.
Ahead of time, my parcel landed on the doorstep. With the most beautiful and delicate pleated floral wrapping paper, an address envelope and care instructions enclosed. There is no element missed and it feels like a truly luxury service. The garment quality is exceptional. The dress fastens at the front with buttons and features a zip at the waistline for ease of wear.
I’m already placing orders for another two Hearts and Found dresses; and I love Bonnie so much I’m getting another. My only issue is what colour to choose this time!
