Golly, another week is already finished. Spring is here – this year really does seem to be flying!
I was browsing Cecylia the other day (she’s a fabulous Melbourne fashion blogger), and admiring a picture of her from when she came third in the 2011 Chadstone Fashion Stakes. She is pictured left below, in the flashy lemon-yellow dress. I absolutely loved the colour. (The image is from here.)
So you can understand when I got a bit excited the next day, because I found a dress in the exact same colour in an op-shop! And not only that, but it’s a Roberto Cavalli dress, too. (It’s come out a different colour in the lighting though, unfortunately. It’s actually almost the same colour as Cecylia’s dress.)
I also found one of the most beautiful pairs of shoes I’ve ever seen! They are by Zu, pure leather and made in Brazil. No idea how I’m going to walk in them, because they transform me into a six-foot tall leggy person. But I just couldn’t leave them behind…
I hope everyone else had some op-shop luck this weekend too! I did so enjoy ingesting some more colour into my own wardrobe.
