This dress is one of my all time favourites. It's quirky enough to be fun but simple enough that it can be dressed up or down (it is black.. not sure what is going on the with the lighting in my photos.) It's not the most flattering piece that I own but it is perfect for 'hiding' under on body conscious days. I wore it a lot in early pregnancy, until it was too snug in the, erm, boobs.
But you know the very bestest thing about this dress? It was $25! I found it in one of those cheap and nasty stores that sell Asian rip-offs of labelled clothing and horrendously tacky faux-mink blankets. You know the ones, aye? Aesop likes to look at the toys and one day I happened to spot this. Stoked!
(Random sidenote: The shop like this in Whakatane is called 'Jingle Bells'. It has a sign in the window that says 'Smile you are in the camera'. It makes me smile every single time.)
The tights are boring old Farmers ones, the striped top is the very same one from last week (fits like a glove, I would wear it most days if I could) and the brooch is one I made.
The shoes are falling apart. In fact, all of my shoes seem to be falling apart at the moment. I guess that is the joy of only being able to buy $20 or $30 shoes from Number 1 Shoe Warehouse, they really only last me around a month or two.
One of these days I'll fit some decent shoes that I love ( and that actually fit!) but at least Summer is on its way.. jandals ahoy!
Have a great day, ladies!
