This is one of my favourite dresses at the moment and I considered it a bargain when I purchased it in a recent sale at Forever New. When I look back on my outfit pictures over the summer, it is very obvious that Forever New has been my favourite store recently. At the moment, most of my outfits incorporate a piece from this shop. It seems to have replaced my Modcloth addiction (since I decided to take a break from online shopping given the high shipping costs). I love this new bag that I received as a gift the other week. I saw it with my mother in law a couple of weeks ago in David Jones and she bought it and said that I could have it! I like it because it reminds me of a bowling ball and I absolutely adore tenpin bowling. Rydog says it reminds him of a poker ball.

Red, white and blue is one of my preferred colour combinations to wear so I enjoyed combining many of my red accessories to form this outfit. I wore this outfit on Saturday. This weekend was one of the most enjoyable I've had for a long time. I went to the Taylor Swift concert, tenpin bowling and shopping and spent lots of time with family. (Just as well I had a good weekend, it was my last weekend of being 22!).

Last Thursday, while at the shops, a little girl and her mother told me that I looked like Snow White. I was wearing this outfit, with a few modifications. I guess it must have been the red lipstick, pale skin and dark hair. I was really surprised at first but the more I think about it, the more I like it. I'll definitely take that one as a compliment. It's made me feel good for the last few days.

How was Taylor Swift live? I've seen her on TV live a bunch of times and she's pretty hit or miss. But I like her!

your hair cut, skin tone, and red lips are very snow white - esque - that't actually a huge compliment because she was saying you look like a princess! that's cute. little girls just point at me when i wear dresses in the winter and say 'mommy she has no pants.' haha.

i love this dress - skater dresses like this are my favorite and i love stripes! the blue and red are great together - i love that awesome bag you have.

What a darling dress! Love the cross strap back!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

You DO look like Snow White!! I definitely agree you are the fairest of them all. You're so pretty. :) You've always reminded me of Audrey Hepburn in the last three years, but you also give off a very modern fairytale vibe. There is something so naturally lovely about you and combined with your whimsical style, it is so magical.

Love this outfit. xoxo
