Joan

 Dress: Bettie Page Clothing

Shoes: Chie Mihara

 If the Pinup Girl Clothing dress below is a Betty, then this Bettie Page Clothing dress is definitely a Joan. The russet orange colour is lovely to wear and gives my pale colouring a good warmth. The fabric’s pretty thin, and creases easier than I’d like and the dress never looks as flattering in photos as it does in real life. But I still like it.

Melbourne’s brief flirtation with spring came to abrupt halt last week, and we’ve gone back into chilly, rainy winter. I’ve realised how futile it is to use the tags “spring”, “summer”, “autumn” and “winter” here in four-seasons-in-one-Melbourne, so I’ve resorted to “warm”, “hot”, “cool” and “cold”. Today – for the record – is “cold”.

This weekend, mercifully, it was merely “cool”, which meant that I didn’t freeze in my strapless pink dress doing my Bridesmaidy duties. Photos to come 🙂

 

Got the Giggles

Dress: Bettie Page Clothing

Cardigan: Cocolatte

Shoes: Zu

 

Really, who could wear a red and white polkadotted dress, and not have a fun day? If it looks like I’ve got the giggles it’s because I do.

I wore this dress to a (reasonably) important work meeting, which proved much less onerous than I’d dreaded, and then – even more importantly – I wore it to go to the premiere of the Leah May Shop’s new winter line.

Leah May herself is officially a total sweetheart, and having seen her beautiful clothes first-hand I’m even more convinced I need to add a few items from her custom-made shop to my wardrobe!

I’ll be doing a proper feature on her later this month when the new range hits the website, but suffice to say that I saw at least four things that would be very at home in my wardrobe. VERY at home.
