Meet the new love of my life, my beautiful new smokey mushroom coloured, gathered, pleated and lace trimmed vintage nightgown – gifted to me from my friend, the ever lovely Shantel. Shantel lives with my girl Charlotte in the most heavenly homely house of girls (with the exception of one lad) and I’ll be featuring their home soon as it is divine!
This beauty really did make my whole bloody week! It is so stunning, and completely fitting for the wearing-nightwear-as-daywear phase that I’ve been going through for a while now.It has the most beautiful gathered bust, latte coloured lace trim and floor length pleats.
I’ve got a beetroot salad awaiting me and House of Pleasures lined up to watch, which I’m positive will more than likely see a post dedicated to come the morning.

I’ve been resourceful this week and have been making accessories again. In anticipation for Spring (5 days to go!) I’ve been embracing nature and flora and making floral wreaths from some vintage flowers and leaves I bought in the beginning of the year from our local op shop.
This is the outfit I wore to my interview with Di of Clara Fox. My interview will actually be a guest post on Vintage Shops Australia‘s blog, and should be up early this week so stay tuned!
I had a wild one last night at our house party, which actually turned into an enormous night! I’ve never seen so many people in one house before! It was so much fun but I wasn’t feeling the best today, let me tell you!
Here are some shots from the party, I didn’t take many unfortunately, I was a bit too pre-occupied!
I wore my 1930′s lace and chiffon gown.
