Birthday Girl!

Dress - Retrospec'd

Yesterday was my 23rd Birthday and it was a lovely day. My friend Renee took me out to a sushi train and gave me gorgeous presents. I had my favourite roast chicken and vegetables for dinner and my mum made me a beautiful chocolate Mud Cake. I was gifted some wonderful presents from my family and Max bought me an SLR camera which has been amazing! I can't wait to wear my beautiful new dresses too.

A Green Dress and Rubies








Mylene Dress - Hell Bunny
Ruby Necklace - Vintage
Clip-on Earrings - Vintage
Shoes - Target


After wanting this gorgeous green dress for some time, it finally found it's way to my wardrobe... And just in time as I wore it to a Christmas party on the weekend. 

I styled it with this gorgeous ruby necklace and some simple heels. I like that this dress can be very dressy, however it could be a worn to low-key events too.

This dress is very comfortable and I always love a matching belt!

Expect to see a few more themed outfits as I already am wearing them in the lead up to Christmas!

Cat Eyes in the Library











Cat Eye Glasses - Specsavers 



I am in love with this amazing cat eye glasses print on the Connie Dress by Voodoo Vixen and of course the vibrant red.

I wear glasses when using the computer and reading, I was going to wear my glasses for these photos but my friend's glasses suited the dress so well! 

The Connie dress features a beautiful cut-out style at the front and pockets (Which are roomy enough that they can even fit my phone inside)! This dress has an invisible back zip, full skirt with a generous hemline and it comes with a black belt that contrasts nicely with the black cat eye glasses on the dress. The fabric is high quality and feels nice to wear.

I am wearing size small and it is a good fit, it runs a little large but that doesn't bother me as the belt pulls it in and it's nice to be able to wear it a bit loose if you go out for a big meal! 

Be sure to like Voodoo Vixen on Facebook and follow them Instagram!

Tropical Love












Two-Piece Set - Hell Bunny
Shoes - Op-Shop
Headscarf - eBay
Bangles - Op-shop


I love tropical outfits, playsuits and two-piece sets! And this Hell Bunny set is a favourite of mine! I have it in pink and red too)! 

Every week I go to one of the local beaches with mum and the dogs and now that the weather is hot it usually involves a swim too! These photos were taken last weekend, we also went to the local markets... I didn't find anything exciting to buy this time though.

It's getting close to my birthday and close to Christmas so I am finishing my Christmas shopping and starting to decorate the house!

Gingham on the Balcony








Shoes - I Love Billy
Necklace - 1940s Vintage 


Some photos of an outfit from a couple of weekends ago taken on my balcony. This dress is already  a favourite of mine since buying it earlier this year. I love gingham and feminine cuts so it is perfect! The scalloped hemline is such a lovely touch to the dress which makes it even more special. The simple straps and bodice makes it nice to wear too during spring and summer.

I decided to theme it with red lips, red nails and a vintage necklace. I have previously styled it with yellow nail polish and a yellow hair-scarf. This is another reason why I love this dress, it is easy for styling however you like!

Va Va Voom!












Carina Dress - Courtesy of Voodoo Vixen
Shoes - Target
Stockings - eBay
Purse - Vintage


What can I say? This dress is amazing! I adore wiggle dresses and the Carina by Voodoo Vixen is perfect. 

The Carina dress is very well made, from the flattering cut and fit to the choice of fabrics. It also has lovely black lining inside that makes it soft to wear. The fabric is as amazing as it looks on camera, it is such a unique design and the fact that the sleeves were left unlined gives it even more wow factor. 

The Carina dress is perfect for events all year round and it would also be the perfect dress for the Christmas season. 

I wore this dress out on Friday night for dinner and it was comfortable to eat in too which is always important. 

I'm looking forward to wearing it out again very soon!

It has been rather hot these past few days, it has cooled down today though which has been a nice relief. A week or so ago I wore one of my favourite Trashy Diva dresses out for lunch, the 1940s style cut and beautiful purple fabric makes it oh so perfect!

Of course I had to get photos with the Jacaranda, these photos may seem to be a purple overload but it all seems so right!
