Night and Day


What better way than to keep up appearances than by wearing my vintage, cream, lace yesterday and this today. Or I should clarify, tonight, I won't be swanning down Swanston St at lunch time wearing this.
Last night I was invited to attend The Luxe Collective as part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week that featured Nevenka, White Suede, Nicola Finetti, Aurelio Costarella, Christine, Jayson Brunsdon and Maticevski.
I also attended this, and tonight there is yet more parades.
I should have a full report by the weekend darlings.

You might recognise this dress from this post, I'm taking it out for the first time this week. In love with the sleeves, I want those huge ruffles on all my dresses.
Dress: Refashioned vintage dress
Heels: Nine West
Belt: Camden market
Jewellery: I made it all.

I can't believe the fantastic transformation that dress made. I never look beyond pieces to see their finished potential. I really should, it would probably open up a world of possibilities.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Maticevski! SO, SO, SO JEALOUS!!!

That dress is probably one of my favourites. It suits you, and it just looks amazing.
