If there is one thing I love about my current wardrobe is that it is full of fun colours and prints. I have always loved bright colours, so when I first laid my eyes on the Connie dress from Voodoo Vixen, I knew that the novelty print would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Not only is the print gorgeous but the fit and fabric make this style beautiful to wear.
One of my favourite features of the Connie Dress is the neckline – I am not normally someone who likes to have a higher neckline, but the criss-cross front is a feature I really like on this style. It meant not having to wear a necklace and leaving the focus on the print!
The dress comes with a matching belt but I decided to add a pop of gloss with my patent bow belt, available from my store. I love these belts as they really bring an outfit together!
This is the first of a series of posts for Voodoo Vixen – I love this brand and I am so excited to share it with you all!
“I love the silent hour of night,
For blissful dreams may then arise,
Revealing to my charmed sight
What may not bless my waking eyes.”

While I’ve been a huge fan of pinup and retro photography I’ve not had the chance to actually have a pinup shoot. I have always wanted to shoot with Lauren Horwood, so when the chance to shoot came about, I jumped at it. We set the date and I am so happy with the results. I can’t wait to book in for another shoot with here again soon. This post features some of my favourite shots.
For this shoot, we met at the Camellia Gardens in Caringbah, NSW – a place that I have always had a soft spot for. My parents had their wedding photographs taken there over 25 years ago so I was excited to shoot in the beautiful space. I knew that this dress would be perfect and it is one of my favourites to wear from City Chic. My beautiful hair piece was a custom design from my friend Danielle who’s brand Daisy Jean is one of my go-to for hair flowers.
There’s no denying that I have been a slack writer, and I have been terrible at sharing my life for the past few months/year.
But there is something I need to share with you, and it’s about denim.
A few months ago Australian retailer Autograph contacted me about reviewing their new range of denim. At the time, I was extremely excited as I was due for some new jeans but I’ve always struggled to find a good pair to fit. I jumped at the chance and when the deadline to post came, I decided to not just give you a “post” but I decided to give them a real, true review.
Here it is. My first post for the year that includes my body and all of it.
I’ve been run off my feet this past 12 months and my blog has suffered. It was never an intentional hiatus but this year I am making a conscious effort to get back into sharing my style and what makes me ‘tick’ again. Today I wore this beautiful ensemble (sans heels) for a day of running errands and some light thrifting. Jacob and I are heading up the coast this Friday for 2 weeks and in my suitcase I am taking some outfits I want to share on the blog. We’ll find some nice backdrops to share those with you guys because I am going to try my hardest to share my favourite looks.
I also feel like I should mention here that my body is changing and I am happy with how I am at this point in time.
My weight is fluctuating but I am getting back into a healthy routine and I am inspired by my beautiful friends (such as Nicola of the former blog Too Many Cupcakes) and my plans to be married next year so the extra 5-10kg (who’s counting?) I put on after my big loss will be gone before I know it. Not that my health and my size should matter to you. And if it does…buzz off!
