Wearing: House of Holland dress, Marina Fini cactus earrings and Asos flats.
Although I enjoy the thrill of the chase and making purchases off eBay, Depop and on occasion, Etsy there are very few instances where after hanging up a new piece in my wardrobe I get a real rush of emotion. That's not to say my other purchases weren't worthwhile, but often they don't feel like missing parts of the puzzle. This dress with it's intricate bands of colour fits right in with the striped vintage skirt, Romance Was Born Pip and Pop archival pieces and Emma Mulholland embroidered bodysuit. It was slightly too warm to wear this for longer than 20 minutes but I can't wait until the weather gets cooler (failing that a trip home to Melbourne in December) to really road test this amazing archival piece. Yes, I've got a bit of a belly showing but my endgame has never been about wearing flattering clothing, I find I'm much more comfortable wearing something which feels authentic and suits my personality.
