Like a Rolling Stone...

Id officially like to tell u all...i think its Spring!!!!! After two of the most glorious days of sun im so excited that i can do my hair over the weekend and not end up looking like a drowned rat when i go out.. i no longer have to wear stockings with everything and i can finally expose my white white skin to some much needed sun...ahhh a tan here i come...well a slight brown tinge anyway..im not huge on the baking myself in the sun thing..

I took these pics outside the front of my townhouse and much to the amusement of my neighbours (who can see right over our courtyard by the way) watched me run back and forth in my little dress while the wind was trying to blow it up every two seconds...a tad embarressing!!!!! i think its time i conned my flatmates into taking pics for me..





This Ali Wood dress is such a Spring dream..button and tie up at the front i have spent alot of time figuring out new ways to wear it, in a bow, tie at the back or just in a knot..i wore the dress out for lunch at the beautiful Botanica in Scarborough for a girlfriends birthday it was such a lovely day..
Before botanica i thought id scour for some Vintage at the local Swapmeet or see what cute jewellery i could find..so i was up at 6:30am on my day off...(oh my) and bleary eyed along with everyone else who came too i went down the isles one by one i ended up with a few cute pieces...and...this original vintage stack of Rolling Stones paper magazines.. (gasp) i have such an addiction to reading old magazines they are full of such history and i find the ads so hilarious..so the rest of my morning was spent delving into these beauties...

So this week im planning to do an update in the shop and get lots of much needed work done..(whew)

Gorgeous photos. Love the dress but those shoes are to die for. Are they Tony Bianco heels?
