Daisys...

I hardly ever seem to post on a Sunday - I'm not entirely sure why, but here is a special little Sunday post just for you!!

Any way - today was sunny and so I braved the outside in my little white mini dress hoping against all odds that if I wore it it would warm up a bit.  Alas it didn't happen so I changed.  But I did get some outfit shots on our very over grown lawn filled with Daisy's...
I've been sewing all day yet again (and basically all day yesterday too!!).  I've just got to put the finishing touches on that cream pencil skirt I mentioned I was working on and today I made a start on the most terrible looking dress I've ever seen.  It came in that pile of clothes I was talking about that arrived last week, the shape was bad, the length was bad and don't even get me started on the sleeves!!  But never fear for there was potential!!  The fabric is just so cute and all it needed was a little creativity and love.  I've just tried it on and it looks a million times better now that it has been fitted and the sleeves removed never to be seen again - in fact I think it may become a summer staple!!

I have also been guilty of not showing you some of my most recent purchases!!  I feel a little guilty because some of them are gems but I just havent gotten round to posting about them because its been a smidge to cold!!  Just yesterday I got a pretty little blue nz vintage dress from the 1940's with a tie belt and tiered pleating, I also have another light blue dress from the 40's that I got a while ago with the sweetest little capped sleeves and then there is that big pile of vintage clothing to get round to wearing and showing you all!!

I will get round to it I promise!!  Hope you are having a fantastic weekend,

  1. I love the dress, and you are doing a good job of making it look like it's warm and you're frolicking around amongst the daisies!

    I am going to Dunedin actually. My bf has relatives there so will be there for a couple days. I love Dunedin, I've only been once before! It was sunny one day, then rained like mad the next!

  3. You do make it look summery, that dress suits you well and I love the daisies. I'm interested to see what this vintage haul you haven't shared yet is like!

  4. You look great in this dress, very spring, and the field of daisys gives the perfect background.

    What a lovely cat you have.
