My, what a week! A huge thank you is in order for the lovely Cat of knight cat for featuring my 
little blog, and an equally large welcome is in order for my newest followers. So glad those of 
you who spotted the post liked what you saw enough to stick around for more. Now, to todays outfit 
- this Bassike dress is my new favourite thing. It has been around for a while and has always sat 
just outside my price range, but by some miracle I spotted it last weekend on its lonesome partially 
hidden on an overloaded sales rack. For less than half price. Yes, there was lunging involved. 
Admittedly it is a size too big, but as you all know I have no problem with slight boxiness when 
it comes to dresses, plus the well-defined shoulder pads make up for any general looseness anyway. 
I would wear a car seat cover if it had shoulder pads: I love their simultaneously futuristic and 
retro feel. Bassike has so many amazing pieces up on its e-boutique at the moment, I recommend 
you all take a peek hereAlso, is anyone else gearing up for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 
Sydney in a weeks time? I'll be there and would love to meet some of you, so let me know if you 
will be around. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Love this! So fresh yet simple and effortless. I find some Bassike a bit too 'organic' for me, but the quality of the fabric, the shoulders and the dropped hem make this super chic

  18. i see this dress in the pink/red on sale every time i step into david jones. i'm shocked each time that it's still there. if only it was this one, or red was my colour! haha. you're wang is seriously the perfect accessory to every outfit. x.

  19. ps. it looks like it fits you perfectly. the shoulders are my favourite part and just the whole feel of it.

  20. Hi! I love those Tony Bianco boots. Any suggestions on where to find some that are similar?

  21. @claire c. Senso has some very similar ankle boots in their online store right now. The low cut and gently pointed toes are very similar to my old TBs I feel -

  22. My daughter and I ordered a dress from Doll House which was to be custom made. I placed the order on a Monday and was surprised to get a phone call the following Monday to say the dress had arrived it only took eight 8 days. I took the dress home and when I put the dress on my daughter, I realized that had just altered the dress (in store) and found pins still in the side seams. I was so disgusted with their lie when confronted they would not talk to me or acknowledge what they had done. To all you mum’s out there DON’T BUY FROM DOLL HOUSE.


Thanks for the love!
