I have started a great book. I think our book club has waned a little. Some of us broke off and read Twilight and some of us didn't like the next book (The Gathering) and some didn't even bother to read it (me) after no one said anything good about it. And on the night we were supposed to discuss the virtues of it, we were all too busy. So it seems to have lost momentum. However I think I have found the book to revive it. I loved it from the first page.

It's set in Turkey in the 70's and is about a man who falls in love with someone he shouldn't and he starts a collection of objects to remind him of his love. That's all I really know so far and of course I'm sure it's about much more than that. It's translated from Turkish and is beautifully written and great fodder for daydreaming!

Anyway, back to brides (instead of having affairs), below are some girls from the recent and not so recent past. I forget that I have some pics of girls buried in emails and the like. I feel a bit guilty as I can't remember some of their names. A couple are from a year or more ago so maybe that's forgivable seeing as there have been so many girls since then.

Common themes, if there are any - natural white, unfussy design, breezy and to wear? Something like that...

She had great legs

Some nice chiffon action from the back

A simple but effective back detail
