Loz and Dinny

It always sends me into a little bit of a frenzy when I find something so kitschy and unique and Mummy was virtually in a trance when she bought this beautiful dress by Loz and Dinny. Just ask the lovely Gemma who designs these fabulous dresses - Mummy couldn't even remember what size she wanted for me! She's going to have to lift her game because I won't tolerate mistakes when she's buying me clothes. Mummy I mean, not Gemma!

I can't wait for it to arrive in the mail so I can start trying it on with things in my wardrobe. I think it will look gorgeous with skivvies and tights (yes, there's very little I don't think will look good with tights) for the rest of winter and then in summer I can run around in all my bare-legged glory.

6 days is my limit

I've recently been on a small shopping hiatus. Shocking, I know. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that it wasn't entirely intentional. However, it was an interesting experiment and I am more than a little proud to declare I made it *almost* seven days without so much as a single clothing purchase!

I blew it this morning though... I just couldn't resist this gorgeous fuschia Anna and Sally mini-dress. I doubt anyone could have though. It's just too cute and is going to make even the most dreary winter day seem a little brighter.

Wedding clobber

Well the wedding was absolutely beautiful - a gorgeous sunny winter's day, a stunning bride and a happy groom. The only thing that would have made it better was more people paying attention to me. I was a teensy bit miffed that most people focused on the bride and not me, but Daddy took me outside to see some birdies when he thought I got too vocal with my objections to the lack of attention.

Seriously though, if you looked this adorable wouldn't you try to steal some attention away from the bride as well? Go on, you know you would....

Baby in Black

I've never been sure about babies wearing black, but motivated by some gorgeous knickbockers in black with white polka dots (and with the requisite ruffles on the bottom!) I've been reassessing my stance.

The first time I wore the knickerbockers I wore them with a light grey tee and a baby pink cardi to keep the look light and pretty. However, I was feeling bold and experimental one day so ordered a gorgeous black (eek!) Rock Your Baby tee to team with the knickerbockers.

The result? I'm a convert. I don't think it will become a foundation colour in my wardrobe, but I certainly plan to embrace its possibilities in the future.
Now I just know I saw a nice black t-shirt dress somewhere recently... where was that? Hmm... off to retrace my steps...

Winter wedding

I'm off to a wedding next weekend and am currently assessing my wardrobe options. Mummy has said that I am not really in need of a new outfit given the abundance of girly goodness already available in my wardrobe so I've been going through my dresses in search of something a bit special.

I uncovered this gorgeous mint-green and red Willow & Finn number in my "too big" bag recently and think the wedding may be the perfect opportunity to debut it - what do you think? Teamed with a red cardi in case it is a little cool and perhaps some red tights?
