(The Babushka Ballerina Dress)
This time last year I'm pretty sure I was jumping up and down on the side of a cliff (here) with a few foil love heart balloons, ready to welcome the new year and to celebrate my blog's first ever birthday. Well, seeing as this is my last outfit post for 2011 I thought I would carry on the tradition and put a little more effort into this special end of year post. This year I opted for a red lace and pleated dress by an up and coming designer from Queensland called The Babushka Ballerina, which we shot on a picturesque dry lake down in Tasmania. It catches the wind perfectly and with a slight breeze becomes full of volume and resembles the petals of an open rose. The perfect dreamy dress to help my mind wander into its usual whimsical and unrealistic state.
So with another year drawing to an end and another year full of your incredible love and support, I just wanted to thank each and every one of you - new and old readers alike - for taking the time to visit my blog. Whether it be once a day or once a year, a comment, a tweet, or a 'like', it all matters to me so thank you over and over again. So many amazing opportunities await us in 2012 and I just cannot wait to see what this exciting new year will bring for us. I have a feeling it's going to be our best year yet. So as I said last year, here's to a new year full of light, love, happiness and health, with no fear and absolutely no looking back. Wherever you are in the world, whatever you inspire to be, always remember to do what you love and do it well. Leave them all behind. Happy New Years Eve everyone!
