I’m off to a Christmas wedding in, oh, not very much time at all, and with no shopping time to spare outside of present-hunting, the outfit question is starting to loom rather large in my list of things to do. Thank goodness for internet shopping then, particularly when it throws up the best green and ethically produced clothing on sale anywhere.
The Natural Store has a particularly fine selection at the moment, and this beautifully classic princess line dress by Enamore jumped out at me in particular. It’s made from silky soft hemp, which has to be felt to be believed if you still think of scratchy sack-cloth when anyone mentions the fabric. It’ll certainly make for more interesting conversation at the canapes than the next person’s cocktail dress from Dorothy Perkins! £150 at The Natural Store
