bunches of flowers i bought for myself

On payday I'm going to order myself one of these signed limited-edition postacard sets. You may have admired photographer Julia Schauenburg's work in Frankie magazine. The set is called "Bunches of Flowers I Bought for Myself" and contains 52 gorgeous postcards. They are available from Julia Schauenburg Photography

vintage gucci bag on vacation

Here is my fav bag, a vintage Gucci number.

The inside was in SUCH disrepair my amazing mother-in-law
 lined it with red satin (the very same my wedding dress was lined in).
So, now I can use it without getting crap all over my things.

Here I am sunning myself on a rock in Townsville in yet another Leona.

my aunty's wedding, 1974

My Uncle John and my Aunty Carol (isn't she just gorgeous).
Their wedding, 1974. I LOVE a vintage wedding.
I particularly like the headwear and the boquet,
but a bit alarmed about the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.
This wedding also looks more 60s than 70s to me.

joan holloway pen necklace

Check out my Joan Holloway of Mad Men fame gold pen necklace.
I got it from Owliday Inn.
Now the rest... top $4 thrifted the brand is "Woolworths". Love it!
The skirt is $15 from KMart. Shoes are $15 thrifted Prada.
Who says it cost a lot to look like a million bucks?

Mum, Pup and Nan.

Nan, Great Nan, Aunty Carol and Mum.

Let me take this opportunity to scold my nanna for not
keeping ANY dresses, hats, bags etc for me. :(

my nan, 1940

This is my nanna, Daphne, when she was 15-years-old.
I love it all, dress, hair, jewellery...

1968 debutante

This is the first time I've ever seen this photo.
It's my mum making her deb in 1968 at 16-years-old.
Look at that hair! I love it.

pretty new things

My new circle skirt from Modcloth. She is divine.

My new Alannah Hill tights. Perfect for winter (looks like a night time snow scene).

This is a darling bag I won from the gorgeous Green Tea and Cupcakes blog.
Thank you so much. xx

This is my beautiful Diva necklace. I've never worn it and not recieved fifty compliments.

yellow satchel

I made my friend Carlos buy this bag. His old one broke and someone
needed to own one of these so I could admire it daily.

I would love a pink one, but it just isn't my style. :(

They're available at The Cambridge Satchel Company.
