{Pink Slip: Vintage, Navy Silk Skirt: Vintage, Boots: Vintage, Rings: Courtesy of Lushae jewelery, Flower headpiece: DIY}

Lately i've been obsessed with floor length skirts and ankle length dresses and seem to never want to cut them shorter for the store anymore. Why? I'm not entirely sure... Luke seems to think it's because i'm 'bored of the same things' and maybe that i simply want something that not everyone has, and i think he's right. I've been on the lookout for the perfect floor length skirt and I happened to find this navy silk one on my opshopping trip a few days ago. It's insanely comfortable and i'm already envisioning a hundred different ways i can wear it this season. It's perfectttt. Although, i'm not really used to wearing long things and i'm still trying to master not running up my stairs and falling over myself in it! I'll work on that later.

It's funny that you can tell by these photos how different things inspire me. Today, i was inspired by these cute little white flowers i saw when i was walking past my local florist and ended up with a bohemian love child, free spirited kind of look.
Even though i'm still a little disturbed by how unnatural it feels to mix super glue with real flowers i really loved how my head piece turned out and could picture my bridesmaids wearing something similar at my wedding. I didn't really anticipate the wind to be as forceful as it was but it really made my skirt look as magical as it makes me feel so i was happy to be freezing cold standing on the side of a cliff for once :)

For the past two days i've been on a huge opshopping trip down south and only returned yesterday. I found some amazing new pieces for the store and also for the collaboration with Tuchuzy. Feeling exhausted and sleep deprived, I came home to the usual amount of work and emails to catch up on but surprisingly to this amazing gift sent courtesy of Lushae jewellry. It's a beautiful 14ct gold double band heart shaped ring which is very appropriate seeing as i've 'hearted' this ring ever since laying eyes upon it :) The photos made it look like a yellow gold but i can assure you, it's a beautiful light gold and even prettier in real life! A big thank you to Sarah from Lushae for sending me such a beautiful gift. If you guys are after one they're having a sale and are only $67 which you can find here.

  3. That skirt is absolutely breathtaking! The way it flows is amazing. I wish it would suit me but I'm way too small :) Making a headpiece out of real flowers seems like such a strange thing to do but it looks great! <3

  5. lies: i know! i felt like i was murdering flowers when i had to cut them with scissors. i don't think i'll be doing it again anytime soon. haha.

  8. amazing photos! I just think it´s a bit of a waste of flowers to cut them for a headpiece instead of enjoying their beauty for a week, but it still looks great.

  10. Oh no i agree, I currently love long skirts and dresses, the hippie years are definately making a bit of a come back. Bit jealous of yours and how amazing it looks in the wind though! haha
    Beautiful colours and love the rings.

    My luke always accuses me of wanting things just because they are different. But isn't that a good thing? I think so anyway!

    I love those coloured socks

    P.s- i think our brains waves ARE connected.
    Good luck with all your listings this week

  13. I was just introduced to your store througha friend last week and am SO impressed, not only are the pieces amazing - there's not a lot on there i don't want to own, but they're so well priced too. where do you find them all? you can be expecting many purchases from me! i just stumbled on the blog today and am equally impressed what spectacular photos, particularly the one with the billowing skirt.
