Pink Romance

For their Autumn/Winter 'Bush Magic' collection Romance Was Born were inspired by the iconic illustrations and stories by May Gibbs of her Gumnut Babies. A national treasure, the stories of these cherubic Gumnut Babies are part of growing up in Australia with her books being best sellers for generations. I especially loved the stories of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, and would collect gumnuts from my grandma's huge Eucalyptus tree in her back garden imagining all the mischief the babies that lived inside them would get up to. So of course I just had to buy this amazing dress featuring some of these adorable Gumnut Babies, the fact that it was pink of course sealed the deal. I teamed the dress with my new Gorman baby pink leather jacket that I have had my eye on ever since their runway show. Such an amazing piece just made for me. The rest of the look went down the pink path, and why not? I do love it ever so much!

  1. love this all pink look- did you get to see the Romance Was Born runway show? it was so amazing, they had eucalyptus oil vaporisers, a paper canopy of bush leaves and the sounds of forest birds playing before the show as well as costumes from the Australian Ballet Company inspired by May Gibbs illustrations <3

    I wrote about the experience on my blog which you can read here:


  3. You're blog never cease to make me smile, I adore your style and your photos!

    I'm really digging you hair and it gives me an idea of what I can do once my hair starts getting to an awkward stage while I attempt to grow it out!

    all I want in the world is a pink moto jacket...ok, that's lie, but I reeeeally want one!
