Outfit: Black & White Crochet


Finally I’ve had the chance to blog the outfit I wore for my birthday which was about a month ago now (although minus a couple of hours in the  afternoon when I played a game of tennis). This was originally my sister in law’s dress and, knowing it was always my absolute favourite dress of hers, she allowed me to have it. I couldn’t believe it, it made me so happy and it was so incredibly generous of her. I’ve worn it so many times since. It is my new favourite dress (I’m even more excited by the fact that it’s Alannah Hill). I love the classy black and white and the pretty crochet detailing. This is the perfect dress in my opinion. There are so many shoes I can wear with it but I realised that my Queen shoes are probably the best match. Of course I had to factor in my new bag which I adore and goes with everything. Pearls also seemed to be rather fitting. I’ve got my university graduation next week. I’m very excited because it will be nice to finally have something to show for all those years of study. Although it feels strange having a double degree from university and still being unemployed. I’m hoping that will change soon. I’m very thankful to have you all as my friends. I get very lonely while everyone else is at work; I spend the majority of that time on my blog. Also, fashion has really helped me too. These days dressing up is usually the only point to my day and the only thing I look forward to. I always used to think that endless free time would be incredibly fun. But since being unemployed I’ve realised that the opposite is the case; I no longer value what I have too much of, I question the point of my life every day and it’s attacked my self worth like nothing else. I guess what I’m saying is I don’t know what I’d do without fashion and blogging right now. Thank you for your part in that.




I love this furry plant every time we go to the park now. I only discovered it recently!

  1. Oh wow, how lovely that your sister in law let you have that dress! And appropriately so, because it looks simply stunning on you. I love the little white lace details, and the sleeves are a nice touch, too. Dressing it up with pearls was an excellent way to go! 🙂


  2. Hey there!
    Thanks for your comment on my blog! Yours is so cute! I love those pictures in the nature! My newest post is all about nature 😉 Would you like to follow each other?



  3. Such a perfect birthday outfit! I just love this dress so much! The pearls and two-toned shoes are fantastic accessories too.
    And hooray for graduating! It definitely feels good to get that degree after all the hard work.


  4. It's very hard to be unemployed. You feel like the world is passing you by. But then you'll get a job and miss the free time. So try to enjoy what you have available to you now before it ends. I envy your ability to blog so much. My job interferes with that.
