A lovely red dress

When I was a teenager I watched Nosferatu and decided I just had to have a cape. So I went out and found one in a second hand shop in the middle of nowhere and was so pleased with my purchase I just knew I had to wear it time and time again. That is, until I tried it on at home and realised I looked like a stumpy little toadstool. How those blood bitten victims managed to pull of the look I will never know.

Still, I wish I hadn't thrown it away because it was a lovely red colour like the Kuwaii dress pictured here. I could have at least recycled the fabric, no?

Ah regrets...

Easter delights

A long, long time ago when I was in year 7 my country high school went on school camp to Tasmania. I have very few memories of the adventure, other than sitting in a tour bus for hours on end, being sick on the Able Tasman and watching my frugal friend record every penny spent in a notebook.

But I do remember our visit to the Cadbury Chocolate factory, which was the highlight of the week even though it totally paled in comparison to Gene Wilder's chocolate factory. In fact, it wasn't even up to par with Johnny Depp's inferior impersonation of Willy Wonka. Just think way too many free samples and some serious tour bus sickness.

So maybe it's because it's almost Easter and I have chocolate on the brain, but isn't this amazing Kuwaii top better than any Easter egg? I mean it's colourful and silky and not-at-all vomit inducing. Hooray.

The perfect wardrobe

This winter I plan to wear lots of shirts layered under dresses. Just like this, in fact.

Dot and Herbey Vivienne dress, in store now.

High tea with Mrs Woo - almost out the door

It's no wonder everyone wants to take high tea with Mrs Woo. Not only is she fantastic company, if you charm her just enough, you might score one of her most coveted pieces.

Take this dress for example. We only have two left. So hurry. And bake your best scones. Competition is ruthless.
