Summer Dresses – a further option – Strawberries and Cream!

Its the second week of Wimbledon and things are hotting up, literally! We are in the midst of a mini heatwave and as I write this we are due a storm that might take the humidity away! On court it has been a hot day too, spare a thought for the poor players charging around in this heat. Ladies be well aware that Rafa may well require numerous shirt changes especially if he has another tough match in the heat like the one today. Andy Murray won too. In fact the top of the men’s draw is still intact but the ladies draw threw up two very surprising exits today. The Williams sisters both lost and while neither were seeded in the top 4 you’d always expect them to feature given their impressive past performances in the tournament. The Ladies singles is anyone’s title this year, could this be the year that Maria Sharapova comes back and wins a second title? One or other of the Williams sisters has won The Ladies Singles Title at Wimbledon 9 times in the last 11 years, Maria Sharapova and Amélie Mauresmo were the winners in the remaining two years. Only one of the last 11 finals did not feature a Williams sister so 2011 is definite break with recent tradition for the ladies.

So what of one of Wimbledon’s other traditions? Well of course you need some contrasting colour to really bring out the greenness of Wimbledon and what better colour than Red. Strawberries and Cream, the sweet side of Wimbledon, perfect for a sunny day and as English a tradition as the tournament itself. To celebrate the tradition of Strawberries and Cream at Wimbledon we are have a beautiful Red and White Plus Size Summer Dress for you. We also have some Plus Size White Linen Trousers that will complement it and leave you feeling cool and comfortable on court!

One of the milestones of British summer is approaching fast. Yes it’s time for The Wimbledon Championship, held at the All England Club, where we see the game of tennis presented in a quintessentially British fashion. This is the time of year when millions of British people tune in to see a player from the British Isles lift either of the singles trophies at Wimbledon. We think The Wimbledon Tennis Championships are the jewel in the crown of World tennis. Of the four Grand Slam Titles it is perhaps the one that all players wish to win the most. The Lawn Tennis Association make a valiant effort every year to make sure the championship is beautifully presented and well run, not withstanding the weather!. Henman Hill will be awash with hopeful fans all watching the big screen with a fervent desire to catch a glimpse of a potential British Champion. Will we be lucky this year?

So ladies the most important question is are you lucky enough to be going? Do you have a ticket or are you having to join the queue for tickets on the day? Over the course of this week we’ll be celebrating Wimbledon with some blog posts and special offers highlighting our choice of what to wear from Vida Moda if you are going to Wimbledon this year. We’ve got some very nice summer clothes to help you look fabulous at Wimbledon!
