Today I was searching my computer for the perfect entry for weardrobe’s ‘time after time’ contest, and came across these unpublished photos, of one of my all-time favourite vintage dresses - also seen here.
I remember how happy I was when I found this dress, hidden away, in my local thrift store, and double-taking at the price tag - $6.00!
It is layer upon layer of lace and tulle and is ultra-luxe.
If you like my entry, you can 'heart' my photo here.
Have a fabulous weekend!

I love a good sale, and it’s made even better when the proceeds go to charity.
On Friday, I picked up this oversized, mens silk shirt from a charity flea market, hosted by my fiancé’s work, along with a treasure trove of other goodies.
I’m off to Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday and I am really looking forward to scouring the Ben Than markets for some great accessories, shoes and handbags. The last time I visited, I walked away with some beautifully crafted leather handbags, so I’m more than excited about what I might find this time round.
Next post I’ll be announcing Friend in Fashion’s third fashion giveaway, so be sure to stay tuned. As a hint for those who can’t wait: Polyvorers will love this!
Shirt – vintage
Shoes – Charlotte Russe
Vintage pendant - (Markets, Brooklyn New York)
Belt – From my last post (Copacabana)

Firstly I wanted to extend a huge thank you to everyone who shared their travel hot-spots with me in my last post – Dreaming of a European Summer, – you guys are the best! You’ve given me some great advice, and even more places to add to my steadily growing itinerary.
From time to time I get asked questions about fashion, design, my travels, so I thought a good way to answer these would be in a video blog – my first Vlog? Blideo?
If you have any questions you’d like answered let me know [EMAIL, FACEBOOK, TWEET, FORMSPRING.ME], and I’ll be sure to include your questions too!
Pants – Lark & Wolff, Urban Outfitters (Miami)
Shirt – Kookai (Australia)
Oxfords – Urban Outfitters (New York)
Fedora – Jay Jays (Australia)
There is something about the look of neutrals against crisp white that gets me every time. Throw in a fedora and all of a sudden sipping mojitos just makes sense - have a great week guys!
P.S. To thank my gorgeous readers for their ongoing support, I’m working on a great fashion giveaway which I will be able to share with you in the next couple of weeks. This one is a beauty, so be sure to stay tuned.
