Flower Power

As you can see my pink obsession continues with this outfit. I tried this dress on over the weekend after seeing a girl wearing it at the Finders Keepers Market who looked drop dead gorgeous in it, I basically bee lined immediately to the closest Gorman to try it on. When I had previously seen it on the rack in stores I had assumed that it wouldn't suit my shape as I usually favour a-line styles. Well how wrong was I? As I stepped out of the change room to show Henry I was racking my brain on how to somehow make a quick $200 to buy it as I was currently -$11 in my bank account and well I NEEDED THE DRESS! As luck would have it I ended up being offered some much needed freelance work that night that allowed me to buy it before my size sold out as it is on sale. I love lucky moments like those, as I apparently grabbed one of the last size 14's in the state and that size is now sold out online. So lucky!

How awesome is the beautiful flower wall behind me? It was bitterly cold and raining on Sunday when Henry and I were in the city trying to work out what to do and where to shoot my outfit. Originally we had planned on going to the Botanical Gardens but were forced back on the tram just as we got there by the rain so we decided to check out some art at the nearby NGV. I picked up a flyer in the foyer and saw this epic wall of flowers, which turned out to be their new kids exhibition Open House: Tromarama for Kids so we headed straight there to see if we could shoot against the wall, and well the rest was history. So happy we stumbled upon it, it's so Kimye's wedding!

I love Maude Studio's unique collection of shiny metallic bags, and am so happy with this cute little bucket bag. It's perfect for events and always gets compliments.

Loving that wall!

I really wanted a pink Fuji Instax for my birthday this year but Henry refused to buy me a "toy" - even though he asked for and I bought him a remote control helicopter for his. Luckily my brother came to the rescue and bought me the camera as he understood how, no it's not just a toy it's a creative outlet, thanks bro!

So happy! My Uniqlo HeatTech skivvy keeps me so warm, I'm going to stock up on more before winter is over!

I bought the case for my Fuji Instax on ebay, and have been buying all my film there too as it's just so much cheaper than it is here in Australia.

I have been living in these shoes ever since I bought them. They go with all my outfits, pink is my neutral afterall!
