mustard & leopard print

coat, dress, belt, bag & shoes - thrifted/vintage, beret - dangerfield, gloves - target

Say hello to the cute little 3-legged kitty who hangs out around our house, affectionately known as Lego. She's super friendly and cuddly, if we didn't already have three cats in the house I would adopt her ASAP. As it is I think we're going to take her down to the vet and get them to check if she has a home, she is at ours an awful lot and always seems hungry, and we've already had a few friends wanting to take her home with them!

I wore this outfit out to go look at a new shop that's popped up in Fitzroy, Era Vintage Bride. Run by the lovely Lucy, this little boutique has a great range of beautiful vintage wedding/formal dresses and accessories at very reasonable prices. Not only that, but Lucy can have any one of the dresses in store replicated for you in new fabric which she sources herself. Though I didn't end up actually buying anything, I was super impressed by Lucy's attentiveness, she gave me dress after dress and they were all beautiful and suited me very well. If you're after a vintage or vintage-style wedding or special occasion dress I highly recommend you visit her!


I haven't really worn this lovely dress a whole lot since I bought it, because it was a bit snug and I was scared I'd break it.. It fits much better now and it's the perfect colder-weather dress (with a few extra layers!)

    1. Thank you, it's one of my favourite colours to wear!
      I'm an all-animal person, but cats are much easier to keep in various rental housing (especially when they don't actually allow pets.. heh)

  12. Goodness, do I adore this sophisticated chilly weather ensemble. Would you believe it, save for a beige mid-century rain coat, I've never owned a beige, camel or similar hued fall/winter coat. It sort of blows my own mind given what massive classics they are. I'd love to find one at a yard sale or thrift store this year before our own cold weather season kicks in again. I love my black and grey vintage coats, but sometimes you need or want a lighter coloured topper, too.

    Big hugs & many thanks for your wonderful blog comments this weekend,
    ♥ Jessica
