Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge - Skinny Belts

Sorry I have been blogging over the past few days, I have been a bit busy completing a crafting project for a competition and I will tell you all about it tomorrow and yes there will be pictures and it involves many, many, many sequins.

Today's wardrobe challenge was "skinny belts" and I only own two belts I'd consider skinny, being a wide belt kind of girl generally, so I decided to wear my white skinny belt today.
I think the fabric this dress is made from is pretty amazing, its inspired by Gustav Klimt and you can see small parts of his painting actually printed onto the dress. When I saw this at a op-shop my heart did a little skip and then I tried it on and it actually FIT me! I was astounded - some things are just meant to be.
A couple of fabric close ups for you all - its a pretty incredible frock.

Here's a close up of my necklace - its an hour glass - well actually more like a few seconds glass but it is actually functional.Here's a close up of a rosette made by my friend Grace which goes just perfectly with this dress.When I left for work this morning it was absolutely POURING with rain and windy and cold so I wore my boot, but then by lunchtime it was sunny again! But then that's typical spring weather - its not time to pack away the coats and scarves just yet. I wore my day of the dead ring today and I am kind of loving how its eyes are glowing in the picture.
