You know those meant to be moments? The ones that just happen by pure luck. When you’re not looking, but what you wanted is right in front of you without realising.
I had that moment not to long ago. I was on a ‘planned’ shopping spree, getting ready for Summer otherwise I binge shop and buy unnecessary and never to be worn items in a frenzy. It was the end of the day and I had just about everything on my list, with one final stop at Bardot I went straight to the sale items and chucked in this dress that usually isn’t my taste into my bag just because it was on sale. We’ve all been there.
When I got home I tried it on, hoping it would fit. It did and I fell in love. I instantly started rattling off some of the occasions I could wear it, not wanting to waste it’s first outing.
The occasion came last Sunday when we went to visit The Dressmaker Exhibition at Ayers House.
The Exhibition itself was amazing, the attention to detail was everywhere and you were transported to a time and place where magic happened.
For those of you who have seen the movie or haven’t, I highly recommend checking it out, it’s displaying at Ayers House until December 10 2016. Conveniently the movie is for sale there too so you can get your whole fix of Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth in fashions’ prime located in the outback of Australia.
I knew I would be instantly inspired when I saw the costumes so I made a conscious effort to dress for the occasion. Thus the frst outing of the meant to be dress. It was a beautiful crisp sunny day, so I teamed the floral layered dress that twirled with me with every turn I made, with one of my favourite accessories – my straw hat and finished it with some open boots.
Sometimes the Universe works in your favor and those last minute buys end up being your most treasured possessions.
Now to find the next occasion.
Boots: Rubi Shoes
