New In The Shop...

In celebration of Summer i will be putting in the shop cute vintage summer dresses in the weeks to come, ones that i have spent hours primping and preening to be re-invented into adorable dresses that can be loved all over again! These two are definitely hard to let go especially when i have seen the transformation they have made to now be up for sale in all their cuteness!!

Vintage Green Baby Doll Dress

Vintage Lanz Checker Dress

If you have any questions about sizing or condition please send me an email!
I cant wait to see which lucky girl gets to wear these riding around town on her bicycle or having a lazy Sunday picnic sipping on iced tea!

After spending a very successful few hours in the op shop i found this adorable mustard blouse/jacket along with a few other squeal worthy dresses, i fell in love with the large black buttons and hand stitched leaf detail (gasp) and to top it off its in near perfect condition, It was one of those days where the op shop gods align shining a beam of light on the women's tops aisle with not another lady in sight to elbow you out of your purchase and you find that piece you know you will love until the seams burst and will sit on your clothes rack even when you cant fit it anymore...hoping someday it will again! That is why i op shop..its all an amazing rush..(These images make me giggle a little i think i look like a giant hot dog) I also have two adorable dresses going into the shop this week so keep checking back if your in need of a summer dress...or two XX

Im getting back to what i love best! i have missed this little blog. i did promise changes and new inspiring posts when i came back and i have so much coming (i cant wait to show you all) im sticking to styling vintage inspired shoots for outfits instead of boring backyard photos and sharing a little more of myself on here too!

I took these photos on a lazy Sunday we hit the perfect summer weather, hot enough to lounge around in a yellow sundress but still cool enough to feel the breeze on your face! Ice-cream is (and always will be) a must...if the cheeky cat (i pressured into having a photo with me) dosent steal it!

Im Still Here...

Photobucket
Just in case you all thought i had forgotten to post for the past week or so, And if you did notice (oh how sweet of you) im sorry for not being around! ive decided to take a step back from blogging for a week to change a few things and take a new path with what i want this blog to offer to you all (my lovely readers) im not sure if you all feel that way sometimes but i think its time for a spring clean! Its easy to get caught up in posting in a routine instead of letting inspiration lead the way so....im going to get some of that back!

I honestly take off my hat to all you ladies who can fit work, blogging, running a business & (children if you have them) and still stay inspired to be creative (and sport perfectly applied makeup) its something im constantly working on and hope to get better at.

Ill be back next week with a new exciting blog...with fresh ideas and lots more vintage inspired posts! XX

I took these photographs yesterday when i was deciding on outfits for Melbourne Cup, i actually didn't end up wearing this dress but i loved how the photos turned out so i thought id post them anyway! i spent a good hour in the morning doing my victory rolls (sometimes they end up a total disaster) but i find if i do them on third day hair with lots of pins and hairspray they wont move for most of the day! i didn't have a huge hat for the day just a simple pastel pink flower but i think with the hair it worked out ok! we had a lovely lunch at Burswood and watched the race (i didn't win anything..never do) but its nice to get dolled up and have a few afternoon champagnes.

Im also in love with my new Mollini pink cork heels, i love bow shoes! and they are super comfortable which is an added bonus!

I hope your all having a fabulous week so far we are getting some hot weather now (summer is officially here) so im pulling out my light material dresses yay!
