It’s a frocktastic friday

I love 1940’s styling, so I was besotted when I spotted this gorgeous dress from Hell Bunny courtesy of Unique vintage. Now I work as a consultant and I do alot of sales visits and present at seminars, so i’m always looking for clothes that are professional but still kinda quirky, like me. So I thought this grey plaid dress with it’s faux tie collar and swing a line skirt would be just perfect for work. I find that if I dress up and feel good about  how I look and what i’m wearing it makes me feel confident in my work. qTv86u0VlI_Hell_Bunny_1940s_Style_Grey_Glen_Plaid_Lady_Hay_Swing_Dress

Shoe (and bag) of the week

Happy Monday everyone! Lets start the week off with a fabulous shoe and bag from Orla Kiely. I love the gorgeous flower cut out on this shoe, available in a navy, light blue and coral they are just perfect for the change of season here in New Zealand. And the bag, oh my giddy aunt, it is totally to die for!  It’s sunshiny and happy and fabulous!

It’s frocktastic friday!

Welcome to Frocktastic friday!

It’s Autumn (Fall) here in New Zealand, so the weather is getting cooler and wetter. It’s lovely though to see all of the new season Summer stock coming in for the Northern Hemisphere. I fell in love with the flower cart dress from Tatyana the moment I saw it, it’s so perfect for summer. It has the cutest flower cart pattern on the skirt and I love the off the shoulder look too! Paired with some fabulous red and white shoes and a cute honey bee bag, you would be ready for the warmer weather!

This weeks frock is totally gorgeous! It’s from the fabulous people at Pin up girl clothing, and it’s part of their Spanish capsule collection. It’s got all of my favourite things going for it, it’s red (my favourite colour), it has a cinched waist and a-line skirt. It’s got the cutest little frill details, rose embroidery, but best of all it has pom-poms, yay!

Here comes Peter Cottontail

Well it’s nearly Easter, hooray! My children are counting down the days until the Easter bunny comes, they are so excited. The Easter bunny usually leaves eggs for them in our garden, so there is a frenzied, excitement filled hunt first thing in the morning, and then a serious amount of chocolate eating!

Today’s post is inspired by all things bunny (well actually  it’s just quite a lot of shoes really!)

I have been waiting so long for the dress I’m featuring today. It’s seemed like forever that it was on the coming soon list at Pin up girl clothing, so I was so excited this morning to see it’s now available, yay! I have to admit I already own the skirt, and I absolutely love the Venus fly trap print, it’s just fabulous. My children call it mum’s chompy skirt (after a character in skylanders!)
