Be my Valentine

It’s not long now until Valentines day. My husband and i have tickets to see a performance of Midsummers night dream on Valentines evening which i’m really looking forward to. I thought  I’d share with you a collection of my favourite valentines inspired fashion.


I love this fabulous heart to heart dress from Retrolicious. it have a sweetheart neckline, cinched waist and flared skirt with a heart print, very appropriate for Valentines day.

I’d love to be wearing these Miss L fire heels too, they have a super cute love heart pattern, as does the black and white heels from T.U.K!

Miss Lucy loves Barbie sleepware from Peter Alexander

I was out shopping this morning and spotted these fabulous pyjamas at the Peter Alexander store.


I love the Vintage styled barbie on the sleep shirt and pyjama pants, she has the cutest dresses! Peter Alexander has the most fantastic  range of sleepwear, they are always well made, so comfortable, and they super cute.

Please indulge my shopping fantasy post

My guilty pleasure is novelty purses, or to be specific clutches. I love them, they add an element of whimsy to an outfit. I had so much fun researching this post, i was in novelty clutch heaven. I think my absolute favourite is from Charlotte Olympia, i particularly love particularly the retro styling of the comic clutches featuring Archie, Betty and Veronica


I also love the Wildest dreams clutch from Sophia Webster and the  Hubba bubba clutch from Anya Hindmarch

And finally the swoon worthy floral embroidered silk knuckle box from Alexander McQueen

Australia Day

I’m an Austalian living in New Zealand, and although i love living in such a beautiful country, i will always be Australian at heart. I miss the sound of kookaburras laughing in the morning, the smell of eucalyptus and  the endless days of sunshine. I miss the space, wide open spaces that seem to go on forever. I thought i would share  a passage from one of my favourite poems about my homeland.Australia

Have a fabulous Australia day Miss Lucy x

Renewing our wedding vows

Last year my husband and i renewed our wedding vows. We had been married for 10 years and it was a big birthday for me so we decided to have a party! I am Australian and my husband is from New Zealand, and when we were married, we had a small ceremony in Australia, but didn’t end up having a celebration with our New Zealand friends and family. So we decided to have a a party in the park behind our house. I think the best part was involving our children in the celebration, they were so excited mummy and daddy were getting married again and loved being a part of the renewal service. After we renewed our wedding vows we both took turns to tell the kids how much they had changed our lives and what we loved about them. So i thought i would just share a few photos from our special day

Hot water beach

Last weekend we went down to the Coromandel for a few days. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to hot water beach. At hot water beach you can dig your own hot pool meters from the ocean. Naturally heated mineral water bubbles up from deep within the earth to emerge through the sand. Two hours either side of low tide, near the rocks you can dig your own spa pool in the sand. You can take your own shovel or higher one from the local cafe. 10942739_10155188283835360_4461978132109542426_n



The sun is pretty harsh here in New Zealand, and my skin burns very easily, so I’d love to have packed this fabulous lobster print surf suit, or if i was feeling glamorous this gorgeous polka dot bikini. I’d also pack this fabulous runaway print towel from Karen walker, and of course sunglasses from my favourite brand Catch a thief.

What does the fox say

Growing up in Australia, and then living in New Zealand, i had never seen a fox, so  when i was living in Scotland, i was so excited to see a fox visiting my friends garden, i think i may have scared it off with my enthusiasm! This post was inspired by the fabulous Bernie dexter dress below, i love the darling little fox print and the black bow and belt detail. Modcloth have an amazing selection of fox clothing and home décor. My favourite is the who gives a fox shirt below, the T.U.K. flats (my favourite shoes) and the fox wallet. I’m having a bit of an obsession with novelty brooches at the moment, and love this cute little brooch from Dinabijushop on Etsy. Finally I’ve been coveting Hell Bunny’s fox skirt for a while, i love print and the darling heart pockets, super cute.

Hi, welcome to another frocktastic friday. This weeks dress is inspired by my love of Paris, it’s the the Antonella Pin up dress in Parisian print from Love the lace detail on the bodice and it even has lipstick pockets! I would wear this dress and dream of wandering the streets of paris, stopping in a cafe to watch the crowds and drink coffee, heavenly! Have a great weekend Miss Lucy x
