Hair Glitz..

It was pretty miserable weather when i took these photos, but i guess it usually encourages me to dress more brightly! since your clothes are always a mood altering factor i love clashing colours and attempting to add a bit of sparkle to a overcast day!


I adore this silk dress (borrowed from the VV Shop), it has such a 30's vibe to it! but as much as i love it i can iron and steam it till the cows come home and then i will sit on the couch and it will crumple straight away..darn it! so please excuse the rumpled look i tried my hardest..i really did! I couldn't wait to show you these Hobbs blue suede shoes! (i mean every girl needs blue suede shoes..right?) i am wearing them for my Auntie's wedding this weekend (slightly panicking about what to wear)



Ive also taken to wearing necklaces in my hair! (Don't think im crazy) it actually is quite cute if you get the right length to hang and it adds a little girlie sparkle. Cute right?

Well this week is pretty busy im helping with a few last minute details for my Aunties wedding on Saturday and since its a 4 day week (because the Queen is in town) im lucky to have a bit of prep time to add new pieces into the shop! (speaking of, if you adore this dress it is up for sale in the shop HERE) have a wonderful day XX

(Wearing: Vintage silk dress, vintage red belt, vintage bag, Hobbs blue suede shoes, Vintage necklace in hair)

Oh my goodness.... those shoes are stunning!! So perfect!! Yes, the dress is very 30s... I know how that goes: you press and press them and they still rumple up! But you can't really tell in the photos at all. :) The Necklace in your hair is such a good idea... I thought it was a hair piece!


P.S. I like your makeup... so vibrant and clean! I just got a Hibiscus Pink lipstick from Mary Kay and can't wait to wear it. ;)

i love that you do things differently!

Love the purse in this post! That is a practical vintage bag, which are my favorite. May I ask the name of the maker, if you know it?
