blue dress


Shopping for a present for a friends birthday; meeting up with said friend for birthday drinks; going to show late that evening.


This is my first vintage-style, modern-made dress. I love the teal colour with the white details, and it is handy being able to chuck it in the washing machine. I have been look at other vintage dresses – such as those Stop Staring ones – for ages. How to choose?



A reader asked what the back of my hair looks like, and here it is – or was, on this particular night. It was left down during the day, but as it was poker straight, rather than curled as I'd prefer, I made a little bun and added some flowers. I am looking for some big flower hair pins, and have almost found the perfect ones by Flamingo Amy, but they don't ship to Australia... pity!

And finally, to counter my oh-so-serious pose in the first picture (I was in a hurry, and had a look-normal-and-relaxed FAIL) ... this is what happens when I get camera timer confusion! :D

Good night! I look forward to doing some serious blog catch ups tomorrow! xxx

dress – ebay
tights – thrifted new (they are sheer white tights, even my legs aren't quite that pale! ;)
shoes – target

Great dress, love the colour too.

I also adore your attention to detail right from your hair down to your shoes. Perfect!

I love your new hair colour Esme darling, and those flowers are so adoreable.

I am also quite partial to blue as a colour for you, or teal as the case may be :D

You look lovely.

The dress is just lovely, and I adore the flowers tucked into your 'do.

Stop Staring is a great brand, and their stuff is a perfect fit for your style.

Yes, the ability to throw it in the washing machine is a major major bonus.

The shade of blonde compliments your skin beautifully. It makes you look like a 1940's pin-up. I cannot believe how good you look. Just beautiful.

Oh gosh I really like you as a blonde, and it's amazing what you can do with it now! You've got me (almost) wishing I could go blonde just so I can roll my hair. Don't think it would look very good on me though :)
