Clothes from my Birthday

Today I thought I would share some clothes which I received over the last few weeks but I haven't posted yet. Most of this collection of clothes (with the exception of the blue polka dot dress) I received for my birthdayfrom Rydog's family. They are all from Bardot (my favourite high street store) and Alannah Hill (my favourite designer collection). Since Alannah is designer and very expensive, I didn't have many items from her brand so I was absolutely amazed and surprised when I receieved these beautiful clothes. I love it how Rydog's mum (a good friend of mine) has such amazing taste in fashion and knows my style to always find exactly what I like. Thank you for such generousity my friends. My family were also unbelievable generous for my birthday too with my main gifts being the iphone, a diamond ring and a sum of cash and other various items which I hope to post her sometime. I can't believe it has been six weeks since my birthday and I am only now showing the gifts that I received so I am sorry about that.

This week will be difficult for me because Rydog is going away from Thursday until Tuesday of next week and I am going to miss him so much and have nothing fun to do. I know that five days may not seem like a long time and that many people go for much longer without seeing their boyfriend but for me it will be hard because we are used to spending the whole weekend together and seeing each other about every second day during the week. I will miss not being able to contact Rydog much while he is away too and he is almost my entire social life so this week will be very different to normal for me. I'm not feeling very good about it. I will need you my friends. I will probably come on here and spend some time blogging whenever I feel lonely this week and I know that will help me a lot.

I do have some good news! Rydog just bought me a new camera which is absolutely so generous and very exciting for me. I will be able to take much better pictures now because I was often frustrated by the quality of photos with my old camera . I still have another outfit post to show from my old camera which I will post in a few days and then I will use my new camera. I'm very much looking forward to testing it out.

Also a few people asked how I altered my dress in the last post to make it longer. Fortunately it had a long hem so I just had to take it down. Since it has netting underneath I had to completely remove the net and sew it closer to the bottom. I asked my mum to help me because I don't know very much about sewing.

Susi said...

My dear friend, of course you can divert yourself spending some time with us!!! I know it's hard without boyfriend when you are used to spend your time together. I cannot life without mine. This must be hard, but you'll make it ;)

Yay, I am so happy for you and your new camera!!! Looking forward to your pictures =)

Last but not least: beautiful gifts! You'll need the cardi during the winter.

I'm glad you had such a lovely birthday. You are so lucky to have such a sweet boyfriend and wonderful friends and family who obviously care so much about you! :)

The clothing items you were given are GORGEOUS. I can't even choose a favorite. I am so excited to see your future outfit posts when you wear these items. They really fit your adorable, classy style!

I'm sorry Ryan is going to be gone for so long. That actually does seem like a long time to me too. My Rian is pretty much my social life too, haha, and I can't imagine going more than a day without him. And it's even more horrible that you can't reach him easily on the phone. I would go nuts! Hmmm...maybe this is good though. It will give you some time to yourself, to just relax and do things you don't normally do when he's around. Don't worry. Before you know it, he'll be back!

I hope you're having a great week! xoxo

Oh my gosh, mum and I were looking at that gorgeous bardot polka dot dress in Myer last week, love it!
And I also love the bow back top and the red and white striped jumper. Looking forward to seeing how you wear all of these lovely things :)
Also, I really like your new header!

Oh my, generous gifts indeed! They're all so lovely! I'm sure you'll have such fun styling them all up.

Yes, it's so nice to finally have a new camera. It's a little mind blowing how quickly the pixel quality changes, don't you think? Have fun testing yours out :)
