Lover lace dress
, Cybele silk jacket dress, Karen Walker rings, ASOS belt, Chloe boots

On layering. While I absolutely adore little lace dresses, I'm always loathe to admit that that I rarely have an occasion on which to wear them. Taking a cue from Michelle, I came to the conclusion that this Lover lace dress could easily double as a top, or in this instance, as a layering piece under a dress.

This is probably about as creative as I will get when it comes to layering. I've never been the type to naturally be able to layer shirts over tops over skirts over jeans over sleeveless vests, like a certain 'Man Repeller', and prefer to take a more simplistic approach to dressing - besides, wouldnt you get hot with all those layers?

Also, I was both surprised and very humbled to learn that I have been featured as this week's "site of the week" in New Idea magazine. Must say it's a little strange seeing my picture in a magazine!


  1. Congrat!

    Polly with love

  5. Wow, congrats on the feature! How exciting!! I had my aunt tell me she saw my blog in a magazine once? She couldn't remember what it was so I suppose I'll never know if it happened or not... it seems so bizzare to me how these things can happen!

    Much adoration over the red lace!

  6. I'm so stoked for you, can't believe they didn't tell you either! What a shock you must have had.

    The Lover dress is such a beautiful colour, I have been on the lookout for some more burgundy / oxblood items for my wardrobe. Great winter colour.

  12. How exciting about the magazine. You look great! I love how they say your blog is "world famous in New Zealand", it reminds me of something Murray from Flight of the Conchords would have on his office posters hehe.
