I am back from my holiday in New Zealand as of a few days ago. I had a wonderful time visiting family, visiting some of my favourite places and exploring new ones, so expect to see some of my NZ posts on the blog soon.
Lydia Dress - c/o Voodoo Vixen
Faux Fur Jacket - Thrifted
Shoes - Vivienne Westwood/Melissa
Earrings and Bracelet - Thrifted
This Voodoo Vixen dress is such a lovely style, I love their wiggle dresses so this is a great addition to my VV collection. Although some of their pieces can run a little large I find the wiggle dresses to fit perfectly, their size small wiggle dresses have always been true to size for myself personally and this one has a tiny bit of stretch making it a very comfortable design. I like when you have the option to buy a dress in various styles and this dress is also available in a swing skirt style, here.
It may be summer here in Australia but we do get cool mornings and evenings occasionally... Not all the time. I bought this faux fur jacket second hand for five dollars a few months ago and I suddenly thought to myself this week, what if I put this with this!?! The jacket really brings out the snowflakes on the dress and I really like them paired together.
It was nice to take a break from the blog and come back feeling inspired... Sometimes I push myself and forget to take a break. So with my blog posts scheduled whilst I was away this was really good for myself and the blog.
I must thank you for all the comments whilst I was away too, I have been catching up and reading all the blog posts I have missed. I don't have a laptop (I swear I have bad luck with them) but I used wifi whenever I could on my phone and tablet whilst I was away and I found many hotspots for updating my Instagram and chatting to family. I am pretty happy to be back at my desktop now... But as I said before it was good to take a break from my usual access to my computer and the internet!
