My life is extremely boring at the moment; I have too much free time because I am unemployed and I haven't worked out what I'm doing with my life and as a result I have no money to entertain myself (especially missing the buying clothes as a form of entertainment).  I miss the social life I had before moving out and the dressing up that came with it. So yesterday I thought I'd dress up anyway, even though I had absolutely no where to go. It certainly made a difference, I felt a little happier and again I will never underestimate the power of dressing up. I simply love clothes and shoes! I know a lot of my outfits involve floral dresses; maybe one day I will implement some variety! As far as my floral dresses go, this is one of my favourites. I love the vintage element, the colours and prints, the matching belt and the structure. I received it as a Christmas present in 2011, it will always be one of the best gifts I've ever received, and I wore it here. It's great as a summer dress but also goes with a variety of cardigans. Speaking of versatile items, this cardigan is one of the most versatile items I own. I wore it with my peacock dress here.  I don't know what I did before I bought it, I must have been lost without it. I like the sparkle which can glam up any outfit. I finally had the chance to photograph my Charlotte Olympia kitty heels. I also have a pair of Charlotte Olympia kitty flats. I did an extensive amount of research before I bought them last year. I wanted to make sure they were proper quality shoes but I didn't have the money to pay a fortune. (Well given the fact that I have no money now, I probably shouldn't have bought them at all! but who could resist kitty shoes?). I was really happy with the website I bought them from, it was a great deal, they fit perfectly and are everything I wanted. They are adorable and provide me with a constant reminder of my kitty Juliette Miracle whenever I wear them. I will post close up shots of them soon.

Your Alannah Hil "I'm a Little Fusspot" Cardigan and your Johnston and Bell peacock dress pair up so beautifully it's almost like they had been designed with the intent of having them worn together. It's a strikingly pretty outfit. The decoration around the cardigan's collar, the pretty buttons and the way it's hem sits so perfectly at the waist of the peacock dress would almost make it look like one gorgeous design except for the bit of the dresses bodice you allowed to show near the neckline. The Lovisa Hair Flower looks lovely too. I'm so sorry to read that you're still unemployed. I had read about that being a problem in the legal profession in Australia of late, very much hope things turn around there and that you find a nice position where your talents can be utilized soon. In the meantime it's a pleasure reading and seeing your blog posts again and being kept up to date. Best wishes from the East Coast of the U.S.. :)

You know just how to dress perfectly for your body type. The full skirt in a floral print adds great curves and the snug cardigan shows your tiny waist. Love it.
