Lady in Red

Dress - Trashy Diva Americana Dress
Shoes - Target
Stockings - ebay

This fun photoshoot took place about a month and a half ago in the beautiful home of a friend of a friend... The house is modern looking on the outside but has been designed to look very mid-century on the inside.
The house was designed by the owner and built eighteen years ago... There will be a few more photo sets/different outfits coming to the blog from this particular day featuring different areas of the house -  I was drawn to the staircase and particular this chair for this outfit!

This amazing dress by Trashy Diva is beautifully designed and high quality (Something you can always expect from Trashy Diva). It is appropriate for most seasons which is always a plus! I feel as if I have the whole Betty Draper vibe going on when I wear it and I have no problem with that! I bought it earlier in the year and am so glad I did, it is a timeless dress and am happy that it has finally made it to the blog.

Photos by the wonderful Renee!

My New Blog Banner!

I am very excited to showcase my new blog banner! I asked my friend Renee if her partner would be interested in designing one with her assistance to get my concept across and I am very pleased with the result! I have made this post to show the progress of the banner and how it all came together...

I was very excited to have Leo and Fifi on the banner, they look so cute... It makes sense to have them on the banner as they are regulars on the blog!

My favourite Bernie Dexter dress was chosen for the banner and the detail is just wonderful... Also featured on the banner is my favourite pair of sunglasses by Pared Eyewear.

And there we have it - An amazing new banner for the blog! It feels nice to have a positive change to my blog as I have been wanting to update it for so long! 
I can't thank Drue and Renee enough for their hard work - it looks amazing!

Afternoon Sun

Dress - Vintage
Brooch - Vintage
Stockings - eBay
Shoes - Op-shop Find

It is a gloomy Sunday here today, however, when it is a sunny day we get the most wonderful sun around our house and we make sure that we embrace it! It is definitely enjoyable during winter to soak up the sun whilst having a cup of tea on the balcony... My dogs  don't waste any time as they relax in the sun and occasionally bark at other dogs passing by, the cat sits with them too and watches the world go by (or they all just sleep).

I bought this dress early last year and always forget about it... So last week I decided to wear it again! The floral brooch is an op-shop find and the lovely flower is from my front yard - it was a very floral day indeed.

Photos from my recent photoshoot with my talented friend Renee! Emphasis of these photos is on the amazing jeans! They are my go to jeans for Autumn and Winter. They are so flattering and very comfy!!! I made this top a few months ago and it has a matching gingham skirt - I will blog the full outfit in the warmer seasons. And I have been wanting a good excuse to wear these shoes since I first bought them!
