Pandora "Work and Days" Linen Dress with Ombre Bead Necklace - Teal
This halter neck A-line handloom linen dress with an accompanying handmade ombre pink bead necklace is the workhorse in every woman's wardrobe. The straight and un-fussy silhouette that can take you from school runs, brunch catch-ups, work meetings to casual date nights. And of course, it has pockets. The teal green is bold and fresh, but also playful depending on the light, sometimes aqua tones come to the fore and at other times, green seems to dominate. Classic and trans-seasonal, this is a wardrobe keeper, from spring-summer pairings, all the way to Christmas festivities.
The Story Behind The Dress : Inspired by Hesoid's Work and Days epic poem, the character of Pandora symbolises womankind and the jar of hope that she holds on to is what humanity strives for. While there are many interpretations of Pandora in the original poem, the one I prefer is that woman who represent's the the catalyst for organised society, one with a civilising influence! And boy, does she have to work all day to achieve that - hence the tongue-in-cheek name - The Pandora Work and Days Dress!
