The blush peach, silk dress was layered with cream lace over the bodice and hemline. Most arresting was the stunning cape that Harper imagined to be from the 1940’s.They just didn’t make dresses like that anymore.Actually, they didn’t make dresses like it back then, either.It was exquisite. One of a kind. Ashley Clark, The Dress Shop on King Street (Heirloom Secrets, #1)

The day hangs on for as long as it can, bright and eager, absolutely and positively the last guest to leave the party, while the ground darkens, oozing night around your ankles, swallowing for ever that dropped contact lens, making you miss that low catch in the gully on the last ball of the last over. Hugh Laurie, The Gun Seller
