No case of mean reds in this dress!

Hello, all! Another busy week for yours truly, unfortunately. I spent all day Sunday hunched over my computer writing an assignment and really ought to be doing the same today (I also spent a good deal of time procrastinating. Oh dear.) I've just got a few pictures to share from what I wore Saturday night (to the Kustom Kulture Weekender). (I think I need to make a list of potential blog titles...I just sat here for about twenty minutes trying to think of that 'gem'.)


This gorgeous dress is from the wonderful Peta Pledger (who I met all too briefly on my recent trip to Melbourne). Isn't it just too lovely? It also comes with that fantastic belt - as Feargal Sharkey said of a good heart, a good red belt is hard to find! In my experience, anyway. 

It's not only a beautiful dress (and versatile, too - I bet it's great for picnics) but I love being able to support Australian products!


I quite often forget to show off other parts of my outfits, like handbags. Here's one that I've been using a lot lately because it fits so much into it! I bought it for 2$ at Clearit on Brunswick Street.


Even two petticoats weren't enough for me - I need bigger, froofier ones, for sure! One day I shall have them...


Then I went to a park and took some silly photos with my friend, Kate... 

Kicking my heels up...


But this is how I really feel about being out-of-doors...not a 'nature' girl at all! (And, of course, I use the word nature in the loosest sense possible as this was taken in a man-made park just off a main road...Ha!)


This is closer to a representation of the 'real' me than most other photos, I think.

My friend Kate and myself...



There are a few more photos on my Flickr but I thought it might get a bit too repetitive if I put them all here. Hopefully once I knock a couple of other assignments off I will be able to blog about something other than myself!

Edit I forgot to add that the bow in my hair is from Hopeless Lingerie and the earrings I'm wearing are from Femmes de Fleurs. Oops! But hurrah for more Australian made.


  1. Oh wow that dress is fabulous!!!! Procrastination is a lovely thing! Until the point when your paper or exam is actually due... I think my procrastination skills just keep getting worse the longer I'm in school. Maybe it'll stop once I get out?

  2. Oh my goodness I love Peta Pledger so much - her things are so impeccably cut, so flattering!!

    Aaaannnddd is that a Hopelessly Devoted red velvet bow I spy?! ;p

  6. I'm in LOVE with your dress! Cheery red gingham is the best, and the big voluminous skirt makes it even sweeter. Those pin-up pics by the fence are too cute!

    It seems the more homework I have, the more prolific my blogging becomes... viva la procrastination!

    I have to tell you, I work at a wedding reception center and the other day we had a bride who was your identical twin. I swear, it was crazy. If she hadn't of been wearing a modern frock I may have even asked her if she was you!

    More silly photos, please :)
