The sun shines on....

Do not be fooled gentle readers, it is rather cold here right now. These were taken in a brief moment as the sun shone, and my central heating worked it's magic.
This dress was found in one of those moments when I was shopping but not supposed to be- well not on purpose anyhow. I just happened to be an hour early to meet someone right near Savers (how convenient!) and the only thing I found that took my fancy was this adorable heart print dress, in my always favourite: black and white.
I don't think I wear these Alex & Alex pumps enough, what do you think?

I would also like to add that the little Miffy pendant is a small token of friendship that I'm wearing right now- I have the red one and my very dear best friend who is an archaeologist on a dig in Crete at the moment has a blue one. The other friend that makes up our trio has an orange one. Childhood ideals run deep into adulthood I can assure you!
Dress: Savers
Pumps: Alex & Alex
Jewellery: Ribbon is just a ribbon really, Miffy charm from an Asian grocery shop on Sydney Rd, other bracelets I made, earrings and ring bought.

My dear Friend!
I live only two blocks of this beach, that is called Boa Viagem. That´s a nice place, but my skin is too white as yours and I hardly ever go to the sun...i prefer to run at the sidewalk :)
You are fiercy as usual, you are fantastic!
Do you live near the coast at your city? I know that Australia is fantastic and think that must have some great beaches too! Tell me more about that :)

A kiss!
Love your blog, ones of fav.
see you,

Lovely dress and your jewelry is quite fun!
In my picture it is a skirt. I was quite excited to find it secondhand, it reminded me of the ballerina tutus everyone is buying at H&M lately.

so elegant. I really think the detail of the red ribbon around the wrist is the cherry on top

WendyB said...

Head to toe cuteness.

The Collector said...

Most definitely wear the Alex & Alex shoes more! They are utterly gorgeous.

The red ribbon and red lips are a cute touch. I love little details like this that just pull a whole outfit together.

You have such great attention to detail and it shows in all your fashion creations. xx

Your Alex&Alex pumps are gorgeous and I think you should wear them more. They deserve it.

Lady Melbourne said...

Fab, it's settled then, wear the Alex&Alex heels more often!
Karahh- thanks for stopping buy, I always love to hear from new readers.
Hayley- can't remember to be honest, I think it was my YSL or Guillame Hinfray but none the less!
Kira- if you ever make it down here we have amazing beaches too. How lucky you are to live 2 blocks from such paradise!
TCH- I like your skirt much, much better than the H&M one!
-H and The Collector- thank you for noticing the details, they are extremely important to me!
Penny it is hard to believe but I can assure you that we have a big Christmas roast at our house no matter what the weather is outside!
Anamieke- thank you.xx
