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
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 😉
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 😉
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.
(i’m not in any way affiliated with Dear Golden. i just love their dresses!)
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…
we got married ❤
it was simple, beautiful & intimate
just the two of us in City Hall
there are just no words to describe it
thank you to Amy for graciously being both our witness & photographer and to our families for not killing us when we told them the news 😉
well, we did always say we would elope!
and San Francisco on our 10 year anniversary?? come on guys!
we’re so so happy & so excited
i love you husband 😉
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.
Another day, another outfit photo (taken once again by Penny)…
and another vintage dress – naturally 😉
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)
i’m wearing – vintage sundress: thrifted / shoes: sportsgirl / necklace: Polli
have a wonderful week everyone
& thanks again Penny!
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.
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
i’m wearing: vintage dress: thrifted / cardigan: witchery / leather bag: hand-me-down from Mama / shoes: sportsgirl / sunglasses: Ines de la Fressange
i hope you all had a wonderful weekend
(& thank you so much Penny ❤ )
