Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge - Blue

Today I had to go back to work after about ten days off - it was difficult to get back into the working groove. So it was kind of appropriate that the theme today was blue.I bought this vintage dress AGES ago and loved the colour, but it needed taking up so I didn't wear it. This challenge finally made me alter the frock and I was pretty excited to wear it today because I think its just so pretty. Please ignore the suitcase in the room - its due to be taken to the op shop! Here's the front of the dress - I really love the shape of it and the fabric covered buttons - fabulous! This frock is a little bit lady like so I decided to wear the very lady like cameo that Meg made for me. I also wore pink shoes and pink fishnets to go with my pink cameo. I also wore my little cloud - which is kind of appropriate given I was feeling a little blue about having to return to work. Also wore my newly op shopped 80's bracelet - I think it's pretty rad.

Dress - Vintage, Recycle Boutique, Wellington, Altered by me
Cardy - Glassons
Tights - Farmers
Shoes - Retro Room, Willis Street, Wellington
Bracelet - Op Shopped
