She’s bright, bold and fun and her print is super sweet – little cats chasing balls of string!

Accented by a wavy red border, Netti is a new colour for me and something I am getting used to. Read the full post »

When this skirt first hit my feed from Hellbunny, I wasn’t a fan. I simply pushed it aside and went straight for something else. It wasn’t until a few months later that I saw it in the flesh and I slapped myself mentally for not grabbing it sooner. The print was so divine! The colours were so bright! I tried it on, did a twirl and new it had to be mine. When it wasn’t available in my size, I searched and hunted online and found that my go-to online store, Ruff n Ready had one in stock. I grabbed it while I could!

The Cannes print skirt is beautiful. Red roses on a black background. It is classic, beautiful and so easy to style. I wore this for a date with Jacob and teamed it with a simple Collectif blouse and red accessories.

Black Tropical.

I’ve never been a huge Hawaiian print kinda gal, but this HellBunny dress, The Kiki, was too cute not to add to my collection. The print is backed with a solid black, something you rarely do see in tropical prints.  I think that’s what draws me in. Keep your kitchy fluro prints for sarongs and overseas get-ups! You can give me a subtle tropicana and I’ll wear it any day.

If you are a new reader of Closet Confessions, you will be familiar with my love of classic, 1950s style. It is a new look I am taking on and something that makes me feel “complete”, in a sense that I feel at home so much more than I ever have with a fashion trend as such. I feel like with each addition my wardrobe is evolving into the one I have always dreamt of, and I it is every so wonderful.
This ensemble for me is a symbol of my new style: the waist, the full skirt and the smile on my face simply says it all. I’ve found my style.

The Lady Brunch.

When I laid eyes on this dress through the Modcloth website, I knew it had to be mine! The print was so fun and quirky and what I love more than that was the pockets and comfortable design.

It has quickly become a comfort dress in my collection and I love wearing it around: I even wore it on New Years Eve to a BBQ and it received lots of compliments!
