So over the weekend i decided that i would treat myself to a new vintage dress and drive into Fremantle to visit She Seldom Blushes. They always have an amazing collection of unique dresses and are always so helpful and excited about the clothes which makes buying them even nicer!I came home with this adorable poppy print dress the fabric is so light and its in fantastic condition. Since it was my grandfathers favourite flower i have a small attachment to it already.
The rain also stayed hidden away all weekend which meant i could park dwell for a few hours before seeing The Kooks (which was amazing) it was the first time i had seen them live and i couldnt fault them! it may be the last outdoor concert i can go to for awhile before Winter is in full swing!
I also managed to squeeze in a vintage hair tutorial over the weekend that i will upload on Wednesday something very quick and easy! So keep an eye out!
Hope your week has started swell!

1 - Long bike rides on sunny days! Found a few amazing hidden antique shops i would normally have driven past (high five)
2 - Pretty housewarming succulents from a good friend! That tag is definitely staying put. (lets see how long it takes for me to kill this one)
3 - Near my apartment there is a huge park filled with rose bushes..every type possible! Sometimes i just lay between the rows and daydream!
4 - This cute car is always in the same spot its almost a landmark! I would love to give it a little love and take it home!
5 - Saturday night with two of my favourite ladies.
6 - Beehives in Frankie mag! played catch up during the week, the best way to spend an afternoon!
7 - Autumn chill has set in! finally time to pull out the tights.(Hard to choose..i have so many)
8 - Peek of sunlight at Mr Sparrow. If you need some cute homewares pop in! Im like a kid in a candy store!

After starting the week still feeling the after effects of the weekend (to which i realise i am far too old to do again..champagne recovery cant be done with a fanta and big breakfast anymore) i decided to make up for my missed day and get stuck into fixing a few dresses i had in my "I'll get there" pile.
This adorable pastel dress originally had long puffed sleeves and removing them has made all the difference! The cute shoulder detail makes it appear as if it was meant to be this way in the first place so im pretty chuffed about that! Now i am on a bit of a roll i might start on the other dresses too..i always have the best intentions attempting to rescue dresses so hopefully i dont have to let any go due to my eager scissors!
I have been a little obsessed with The Troggs and reading THIS today...oh my! It has been the sole reason i have been bursting out in laughter at work! Oops!
I am also going to be filming the next hair how-to video over the weekend! Anything you particularly need some tips on? Happy Wednesday Xx
