Sparks Red Carpet

the red carpet was hilarious.
and by hilarious i actually mean kind of terrifying! (in a good way of course)

there were people everywhere, along with crazy bright lights & more cameras then you could poke a stick at! it was really wild!
i’ve been on the press line before, taking pictures of people on the red carpet when i helped Mike out with Indie Film Nation, and even that was crazy – not to mention i was a little star struck (Joseph Gordon Levitt!!!!!), but this was a whole new strange level for me!
i did feel like my face was going to burst from smiling so much – but i figure that can’t be a bad thing!

some friends managed to snap some photos of us as we were shuffled down the press line so i thought i’d share a few

(even though this one is blurry, it really shows the madness that was the red carpet!)

it was really such a fun experience.
plus i managed to find a 1940s dress to fit in with the era of the film, so i ticked that one off my list!

i wore: vintage 1940’s dress from Shag / sportsgirl heels / vintage bag
mike wore: ted baker endurance suit / ted baker shirt

beautiful vintage that makes my heart skip a beat

i love vintage clothing.
beautiful dresses really do make my heart skip a beat, & while i have quite a large collection myself, the dresses over at Dear Golden really are a sight to behold.
they’re currently having a 25% off sale & as a result, i’m wishing i had an endless list of gala’s to go to (just one would be nice…!), not to mention & endless supply of money πŸ˜‰
here are some of my favourites that i wish i could make mine


this beautiful 1950’s silk orange party dress

i’m certain i need this gorgeous 1950s wedding dress
(i have a slight obsession with wedding dresses…it’s possible that i own at least 10…)
and while on the topic of wedding dresses…

please can this be mine??

this beautiful baby blue strapless number is just breathtaking

and this white & blue cupcake dress

and this incredible red tulle number

and while i’m here, how could i go past these 2 gorgeous princess coats

this black & rusty brown boucle coat

and i swear this black wool coat is what my dreams are made of!
look at both of those collars!! ahhh ❀

if you didn’t already know, i have a thing for the 1950s πŸ˜‰

i’ve been crushing on Dear Golden for such a long time, so i needed to share the love
if you’re after beautiful vintage, definitely pop over to their store & check them out.

San Francisco Days <3

oh my ❀
where do i even begin…

i have a love affair with San Francisco.

it’s the city where Mike & i met,
the city i fell in love with while i was falling in love.
with it’s unbelievably steep hills & beautiful victorian homes,
the city by the bay completely stole my heart.

so i suppose it’s only fitting that four weeks ago we found ourselves back where it all began
on our 10 year anniversary
writing a brand new chapter…

on Tuesday March 5th…

1940s glamour

i’ve found my dress for the film premiere ❀

i was sure i had my work cut out for me, considering 1940s dresses aren’t exactly the easiest thing to find, especially on a time constraint!
i almost just gave up, but a fateful pop into a vintage store on the way to visit a friend had my dress dilemmas sorted! my dress of choice was a gorgeous black crepe wiggle dress with a sweetheart neckline…(but i’ll share more about that a little later…)

below are a few gorgeous gowns that i came across while gathering dress inspiration on etsy.

this gorgeous black art deco dress from Rococo Vintage
this Jerry Gilden Rayon dress from Raleigh Vintage
this gorgeous peach coloured dream from Nod to Mod Vintage
and this stunning pink lace formal gown

so simple but so glamorous

this wall was just screaming to have photos taken in front of it, even if the giant koi mixed with my red dress made for a colour-assault on the eyes…how could we say no!

i’m slowly getting the knack of this posing business, but as you can see on the right, i’ve still got quite a way to go! haha (even funnier is that Penny only sent me the good photos! eeep)

Australia Day Outfit

#PicFrame
outfit posts are not something i do with great ease.
i like being behind a camera (that’s usually where you will find me!), but with my vintage dress collection expanding (drastically!) i wanted to start documenting my outfits a little better. Enter from left stage Penny, who very kindly accepted the challenge of capturing me.
#PicFrame
She actually spotted this dress while we were out op-shopping & the lovely bold print just screamed Australian Flora to me. it was only fitting to debut it on Australia Day
#PicFrame
#PicFrame
i’m wearing: vintage dress: thrifted / cardigan: witchery / leather bag: hand-me-down from Mama / shoes: sportsgirl / sunglasses: Ines de la Fressange
#PicFrame
i hope you all had a wonderful weekend
(& thank you so much Penny ❀ )
