Swatch: Trelise Cooper

My friend UK Sarah and I spotted the Trelise Cooper dress shop on our way to the cable car to ride to the botanical garden.  “Shall we go now or later?” Now.   From the moment we walked in, the clothes got my heart pumping.

Sarah is looking for the right dress and coat to wear to her daughter’s wedding in a British springtime.  We happily fossicked around for quite awhile looking at all the possibilities.  Roseanne worked tirelessly to find different designs in Sarah’s size.  Meanwhile I browsed the sale rack.

After a very happy hour, Sarah found a beautiful brocade dress and a linen jacket that looked stunning on her.  Penny, the shop’s owner joined in helping Sarah determine the best size and adjusted the cuffs on the jacket.  I cheered her on and affirmed that she had the winning combination for the Mother of the Bride.

Meanwhile, I found my own deal on the sale rack.  I am now a fan of Trelise Cooper designs.

P.S. While walking to the World of Wearable Art performance and awards we saw this bus stop billboard!

Lovely coincidence
