In the Flowers

I got this amazing 1950s cotton day dress with a big purple floral print on Trade Me the other day, because I have no self-control. It has been entirely stitched by hand with the neatest, tiniest little stitches ever. Even though it's massively seasonally inappropriate I wore it today.

  Idk what these poses are. Too much sav.

Worn with a 50s black cashmere cardigan that I've had for ages, rose pin from my friend Alex ages ago, pink belt off another dress, opshopped t-bar heels that I think are originally from Farmers, and opshopped 80s sunglasses that I got yesterday in Petone.

Also, this is hopefully the last time you'll ever see me with this grotty haircut. Growing out my fringe ("bangs") was a terrible decision, but now they are so long I can't just trim them back to the way they were, so I am getting a free haircut later this week from a student hairdresser, thank god.


  1. Oooh, it's beautiful. I'm pretty sure I say this about all your dresses, but god that print is so perfect. I can't believe someone sewed the whole thing by hand. Seriously, it takes me ages to even handstitch a hem, I can't imagine handstitching a whole dress.

  2. Oh man, that dress rules. So, so beautiful. I really have to stop visiting your blog - my eyes are green with envy every time, haha. It also makes me miss the long hair I just had lopped off! I shall have to check out this Trade Me website you speak of.

  3. Very pretty frock - with tights and cardies there is no need for anything to be seasonally inappropriate ;)

  4. yay for beautiful seasonally inappropriate clothing, it's nothing you can't fix with a coat or cardigan anyway, so the weather is no reason not to buy yourself new dresses!
