How are you good readers doing? I know its been a while since I last posted but I am thankfully still alive. I hope you are having a lovely festive season and catching up on rest and recuperation as well as with family and friends.

I have definitely been doing ALL of that and one of the ways I’ve caught up with family was by attending my cousin’s wedding last week. It was a BEAUTIFUL event in gorgeous surroundings and it was wonderful to reunite with family members I haven’t seen for years.

What did I wear? Its winter and I was SO tempted to just bundle up in something with a high neck and long sleeves but I figured nah, I don’t buy winter coats for no reason so I opted for girly dress¬†with an autumnal theme………


Ain’t it gorgeous? Now I’m not one for off the shoulder dresses as I have yet to find a sturdy enough strapless bra to keep the girls aloft, but I loved this frock so much I thought I would buy it anyhow. I adjusted it slightly by adding rouleau loops and beads to the back so that I could have the off the shoulder bits on the shoulder. I’m wearing the size 24.


This worked well though it did make the middle of the back collapse a bit so I needed to make a few minor adjustments.

I found this gorgeous 1950s vintage fascinator on Etsy at His n Her Vintage that I LOVED as soon as I saw it and it was a perfect match for the dress.


I bought a new lippie a few weeks previously and it was another precise pairing.

The shoes I have had for about 4 years but never worn. I bought them (from Clarks) because I loved the colour but had zippo to wear them with so they stayed pristine in their box until this day. Jewellery- Earrings by Shining Seren


I had a great day and the only downside is that I returned home minus one earring. Handmade. Silver. I have had them for years. I could cry.
