Between working, packing my bags, wrapping presents and (failing at) cooking, I don't see myself having time to come online and wish you all a Merry Christmas, so I'll do it a little early. I hope every one of you has a wonderful day, filled with grotesque quantities of food, smiling relatives and toys that make noise :D
Apparently those of us in Melbourne can expect a cool-ish Christmas (thank goodness - it was well over 40 degrees last year) so I can finally wear this dress:
It's a gorgeous little vintage silk number that has just the right shape to wear my new What Katie Did bullet bra underneath (I swear, my waist is nowhere near that tiny - optical illusion!) I was nervous ordering one, as I didn't know what the shape would be like on me, but I feel like an absolute bombshell with it on! Definitely going back for more~!
As you may have guessed from the packing reference earlier, I'm going away on holidays. I'll be staying close to the beach for a week and a bit with my grandparents, can't wait! They live in NSW so we don't get to see them often. Unfortunately, my suitcase is too small to pack my parasol so I'm going to have to get "wear sunscreen" henna'd on my hand - I burn incredibly easily and no amount of floppy hats are going to save me if I forget that vital step!
Enjoy your holidays, and have a swell new year's! Be seeing y'all!
Time for an update on my blog profile, 2 years on! I still don't know how to sew properly (how is it that I always manage to sew stuff inside out?) Still at university (although I'm one step further along the road to becoming a psychologist!) I work full time, so I am no longer a regular at any opshops (but hopefully can now afford a few etsy pieces that were previously out of my price range!) I still love the 40s and 50s, but am divebombing into the fun and experimental fashions of the 60s, 70s, and (gasp) today! I post irregularly, but when I do I hope you like what you see!
