Punching in a Dream...

Dress: Vintage
Belt and shoes: Sportsgirl
Sweater: Modcloth
Headband: DIY

I’ve been a terrible Chictopian and blogger, so apologies for the lack of posts, comments, blog visits etc. This week has probably been the most stressful of my life but it’s nearly over =)

Between all the work, I managed to DIY this rosette headband. I really wanted a white crown rosette headband and had no idea where to get one so I decided to get creative. It’s far from perfect but I dunno I guess I prefer that interesting flawed look.

This outfit was comfy, which is my first priority at the moment. The dress is vintage and I love the print and the slinky, flowy material but it was a bit longer than I would have liked so I hitched up the skirt to add a touch of youthfulness. I got a few looks though, I think some people may have thought I got my skirt tucked in my undies (wouldn’t be the first time) but I like the asymmetry. This sweater is one of my favourite Modcloth purchases. Actually, I love everything I’ve ever bought from there but unfortunately the postage is so expensive to Australia that I rarely go past creating a collection in my shopping basket before realising that I just can’t swallow the postage costs. 

Thanks to all my new followers! I'd love to visit all your blogs so drop me a message and I will pay you a visit =)
Ps. If people are interested, I can do a tutorial on how to make the headband!
