Chinoiserie Chic Dress Restock

Ancient Garden Midi Dress

I posted last year on this wonderful Farm Rio blue and white chinoiserie dress that I bought and it was also featured on Instagram when Bunny Williams wore it to Furlow Gatewood's 100th birthday party. It sold out everywhere. Well, they have brought it back. 

It is a favorite of mine and I get compliments every time I wear it. I find that Farm Rio's fitted styles like this run a bit small, especially in the top. So if you are busty, I would size up. Use code WELCOME15 for 15% off your first order. Click on the captions to link.

  1. I have thought about this dress ever since I first saw it on your blog. How would you describe the weight of the fabric? I would not care for anything too heavy but would like it to be substantial enough to hold its shape. Thanks for posting this!

    1. It's a perfect weight - not heavy at all and I am in South Florida so I want comfort! Not sheer and holds its shape. Really a great dress.

    2. Thanks, just ordered it!

  2. Wow, gotta have it! I don't know how I missed it before. Thanks for the heads-up.
