Green, black and a few other colours.

My friend bought us tickets to see Gotye, the other night, and it was so fantastic. I saw him back in...2008, maybe, at the St Jerome's Laneway Festival. He was also great to see back then, but this show was a very different vibe as he had other musicians with him this time. Anyway, I wanted to wear something comfortable but that was still fun so I decided to put on this dress - I don't think I've photographed it for the blog before, either.

I'm completely in love with this dress - it's so comfortable and I think it's quite versatile, too.

Hopefully you can see my hot dog earrings at least somewhat clearly in this photo. I used to wear a lot of slightly silly/novelty accessories so I decided to trying to integrate a little of that back into what I wear. Hence, hot dog earrings (I made them myself from some charms I bought on etsy).

And, for anyone who hasn't heard of Gotye and has no idea what I was yammering on about, here's the film clip (which is still amazing no matter how many times I see it) for the first single off of his latest album, which also features Kimbra.



Love,

  4. I love the pattern and color of your dress. I also wear novelty jewelry, I think it brings some much needed quirkiness to my outfits.

  15. LOVE the outfit (as ever) and I am oober jealous of the fact that you seem to be able to get your curls all the way round your head.

    However - what I like most about this post is the link to Gotye. I have never heard of him. He reminds me of a young Peter Gabriel - from the song you have linked to. *scuttles off to find out more*

  16. I love those hot dog earrings! :D I used to like a lot of those slightly silly type accessories, got rid of most of them, and have been adding some more back in. Because sometimes having a wink in your outfit like that is too fun! ;)

    The dress is really beautiful--I always love seeing what pretty pieces you've found! Suits you to a T! :)

  18. So lucky to go to Gotye!
    Just wanted to ask- do you pin your front curls? or do curl them and hairspray them to stay?

  19. Thanks so much for the compliments, everyone! And glad I got some more people into Gotye ;)

    @Dashfield Vintage: Thank-you - I'm really glad you said that because vibrant & colourful is usually what I aim for. :D

    @Cheri: I'm really glad you like the song - finding something that describes your situation can be really helpful sometimes (though I am sorry it describes your situation, right now). I've been so out of touch/away from Facebook so I had no idea what was going on. <3

    @BaronessVonVintage: Couldn't decide which comment to post so I put both ;) So glad you like this music, too!

    @Juliette Rose: thank-you. They're pinned in place - I just roll them down and pin them like I would victory rolls. :D
