Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge: Stripes and Spots

Hello all - today's Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge was stripes and spots - which gave me the perfect chance to wear my new-to-me frock from Recycle Boutique.
Recently I've decided that I need to wear brooches more, as I have a whole bunch of them I hardly wear. The HUGH lapels on this frock were the perfect change to rock this unicorn brooch from Alicia.
The spots part of my outfit consisted of a poka-dot pair of tights I bought from Glassons earlier this week.
Here's a little something I forgot to show you all yesterday - my brand new gummy bear bracelet! I bought this at the Wellington Underground Markets last Saturday too, from a vendor selling all kinds of amazing miniatures.
If I'm wearing green then I HAVE to wear this green peacock ring that I bought to wear to our friends "Green" themed party last year.
Finally the whole outfit - green, stripes, spots and gummy bears.


Dress: Vintage, Recycle Boutique
Tights & Belt: Glassons
Bracelet: Wellington Underground Markets
Necklace: Clothes Swap party
Brooch: Alicia @ So Pauve
Ring: Equipt
Boots: Bought in Seoul

I hope you're all having a super week - I have to admit I'm a little uninspired at the moment as I am just counting down the hours until we leave for Vanuatu on Sunday! Hurrah!

That is such a cool dress! And I'm loving all of your jewellery too.

Just think, this time next week you'll be there!

That dress is absolutely fabulous, you can't beat a massive 1970s collar for making an impact, can you? The necklace is amazing, too.
Loved yesterday's swim dress soooo much! x

I really love this frock! Of course it's the green, the style & the stripes. Love Love Love! That necklace is fantastic must show us it in more detail. And Yay for brooches! I'm surprised by how much I'm wearing mine now. Hope the rest of your week doesn't drag on too much! Xx

This outfit kicks ass! I love the stripes with the polka dots and all the chunky jewelry rules! The green streak in your hair is extra juicy baby!

Cool dress - I really like the pattern of the fabric and it really goes well with your green streak in your hair. Hope you are keeping warm, imagine how lovely it will be in Vanuatu!
