I can’t remember if I ever posted a picture of the outfit I wore to my 21st after all the effort I went to putting it together. Apologizes if I’ve already blogged this and am suffering amnesia.
I found this lovely Zimmermann dress in Melbourne while on holidays and was surprised at the time something strapless actually stayed up on me for once. The cut of the dress is very flattering on the female figure too; possibly something to do with the nicely cinched waisted and sweetheart neckline.
I did have a fair amount of trouble finding things to go with it. At first I tried contrasting it against block colours to no success. My turquoise necklace looked great but it wasn’t quite the look I was going for. I tried on purple, black, everything. Eventually a friend suggested a rather obvious choice I hadn’t thought of: gold and diamanté costume jewellery. While looking for something of this description, however, I found a lovely gold and shell leaf necklace that matched perfectly, along with some great gold and shell bangles to match all from Lovisa.
I paired the dress and jewellery with my white and gold YSL arty ring, some Betts Dorothy glitter pumps (which apparently come up more silver than gold in pictures), and a nice white and gold beaded clutch from Forever New. I really love how it all turned out. Not something I usually wear but perfect for a summer cocktail birthday party.
Recently I’ve been playing with different outfits revolving around the dress; hopefully I can fond plenty more to style it with. Definitely a great buy!
P.s. My brother just so happens to own the room with the full length mirror in it and happened to have tyres sitting in there on the weekend. Related: I feel like they make me look even shorter! Oh dear.
My lovely new Pandora ring cluster I bought with my birthday voucher for our local Pandora stockist. Very pretty and great for work as I wear a lot of silver jewellery. I’ll definitely be collecting more rings in the future to make a few different clusters.
So today was technically day one of a girls trip to Brisbane for a 21st. Of course, we’ve had a bit of a shop already and found some decent bargains.
Such as a cute pair of London Rebel red peep toe pumps for $50. Fairly comfortable too considering I wore the clubbing that night and only got a small blister.
I also discovered Tree Of Life has cute silver jewellery and I bought myself a nice bow bracelet to match my Tiffany & Co R necklace and silver ring from my b’days.
Tomorrow will be another day of shopping – saw a super cute playsuit and some nice messenger bags – I’m super excited!
Three for the price of two? Yes, please! The bangles and necklace I plan to wear with my 21st dress and the ring is just a bit of turquoise fun. I had quite a bit of difficulty trying to find something to match my bright coral dress but got there in the end. I just need a cream clutch and pair of pumps now.
The lovely people at Witchery sent me a $20 reward the other day so of course I trekked down to the shops to check out what I could get on my very limited budget at the moment.
I found a great $30 bracelet set which is simple and will match a lot of my wardrobe. I’m thinking it will go with my 21st outfit nicely too.
When I got the counter I discovered it was actually in sale. So instead of paying a $9.95 difference, I got $20 off (making it $9.95) and now I still have $10.05 reward left to use. Bargain! Perhaps I should have gotten two?
Well it’s exactly one month until Christmas and my family and I have started dropping hints about what gifts we want for Christmas. We’re one of those families who rarely surprise each other and instead get each other the things we’ve been lusting after for ages but haven’t gotten ourselves. What’s on your Christmas wish list this year? Perhaps a holiday, a lovely candle set, or maybe some perfume. Let me know what you’re wishing for by commenting on this post!
Below I’ve shared my Christmas wish list for everyone to check out. Enjoy!
Country Road Pierra Sandal in Fossil Wood. I’m certain a girl can never have enough neutral coloured flats of all descriptions.
Another Yves Saint Laurent arty ring to add to keep my white one company, this time in a nice blue. I can’t get over how addictive these rings are. I swear I wear mine every day.
J Brand Lola Shorts in Stealth. Who doesn’t love a great pair of leather shorts or a great leather skirt?
