Bag and earrings: Vintage
Belt: From a dress I bought in Vietnam
This dress… is an absolute treasure. This is one of my thrift store finds from the other day and I was instantly drawn to the bright, colourful, crayonesque, somewhat psychadelic print. I feel like I’m wearing an acid trip.. hence the title. It’s about 3-4 sizes too big for me but I love how oversized and drapey it makes it, although a nip and tuck here and there would never hurt. I also love how juxtaposed the long, conservative nanna style of it is with the fact that it has a cleavage flashing plunging neckline. Perfection.
I hope you could see how truly adorbs these earrings are, they’re little red fabric rosettes. I stole them from ya mum (not really, they’re from my mum). The bag was also inherited, either my mum's, grandmother's or auntie's.These shoes, I truly hope live for eternity. I've had them for a few years now and I don't think they'll ever go out of fashion. They're probably consistently near the top of my list of favourite shoes, and I own a few!
First of all, I want to shout out to the lovely people who have visited my blog, and especially those who have left lovely comments. I hadn’t checked my comments for days purely because I really didn’t expect anybody to leave any. But when I check today I was so pleasantly surprised! It really means a lot and it really made my day! It’s really motivated me to become a better, more active blogger. It took me nearly two years to go from lurking Chictopia to actually participating so now that I’ve taken the dive, I feel the need to commit and that goes for my blog too. And that I will…
So… I propose, that I WILL start commenting regularly on people’s blogs. And, I hope that as a result, I will have more people come to visit mine and feel as though they can leave me a message as well. And I will continue to (since I already do) to visit anybody’s blog who drops me a sincere line (as long as their comment contains more than just something along the lines of "VISIT MY BLOG… etc etc.blogspot.etc.).
So that’s the pact I’ve made to myself…
So I wore this outfit to dinner the other night with some girlfriends. I've been desperate to wear it ever since I picked it up. We ate at this amazing Tibetan Restaurant (for anyone from Brisbane, please check out Tibetan Kitchen in West End). My friends and I frequent there because a lot of them are vegetarian and they seriously have more vego options than anything!
