Today I have my new dress, which I received courtesy of OASAP, to show you. I also own this dress in purple which I posted here . Often, when I find a piece I love from OASAP, I order it in multiple colours; I can have true confidence in my order. Also I’ve wanted a white dress for so long. A white dress is so clean, fresh, classy and beautiful. From what I’ve observed, the little white dress is starting to take on the properties of the little black dress or the little red dress; it’s a must have piece. I look forward to spring when I can wear this little white dress in all its glory. Today I had to make it more appropriate for winter. I like the way this combination came together; it’s one of the rare occasions where I didn’t give it much thought but it seemed to work. I knew I wanted to wear a piece which had been under utilised in recent times; the cardigan (and bag actually) fit that criteria as it’s been sitting around in my wardrobe for far too long. I adore heart print and rainbow hearts are even better! The star fish earrings pictured above are from the same OASAP order. They are one of my favourite pairs since they are super adorable and incorporate two of my favourite aspects- rainbow colours and pearls. The same goes for my USA flag print bag. It’s so unique and the beaded detailing is really beautiful. I’ve had this bag since I was about 14 or 15 years old. At that time, and for many years, I was super obsessed with the USA. I loved American accents especially, knew a lot about the country and desperately wanted to visit. So my aunt bought me this bag for Christmas one year. It was really thoughtful and is special to me today since it brings back so many memories. I still haven’t been to the USA but I would very much like to (if I can ever get past my fear of plans and my inability to save money). We can also see this bag as a contribution to all the Independence Day inspired looks I have been seeing on blogs lately. I did wear green on St Patrick’s Day so that’s only fair! On another note, my blog seems to give an unrealistic view of the weather in Sydney. It appears from my pictures that it’s pretty warm here. While it’s a warmer winter than usual and we probably don’t know the true meaning of the season in Australia, I sure think it’s freezing walking to the bus stop at 7.15 in the mornings for work. I’m mostly seen in my pink coat and a scarf these days. even at the office I even had to resort to taking an electric blanket in to work it’s so cold; it increases the motivation to go to work a little.
Thank you so much for your comments on my last post. It was so incredibly lovely and I am very grateful. I didn’t expect so many of you to take the time to actually read my whole post and to go to the effort of leave me a reassuring comment and speaking about a topic other than fashion. I expected maybe a few people would do that but definitely not in the quantity I received. Your support doesn’t go unnoticed and it helps a little given that I feel so alone most of the time. I hope that one day I can write about how I came through the other side but for now that will have to remain a very distant hope.
