Dream reader


The other day I received a super lovely gift from Sugar Lips Apparel, and opened the box to discover what was a stunningly vivid diffusion of gorgeous colours, fluidly blended into each other like the way tie dyes do. It was even better when I wore it- such a beautiful mix of purple, white, blue and subtle hints of yellow cascading down in a flutter of accordion pleats! The high-low cut of the dress was also just perfect for me as well, as I've accumulated too many dresses with floor-sweeping hems in my closet, and this was a fantastic way to enjoy varying lengths with the asymmetric cut.

We went to Birkenhead Point that day to shoot, and one of the biggest highlights was when a little blonde girl came up to me when we were waiting at the lifts, and said "I like your dwess. Your dwess is purple and bwue. Purple and bwue are my favouwite colours." It was so ridiculously CUTE! I seriously have an undying love for little kids (worked at a children's store and contemplated a career in primary school teaching!) and this little encounter was a perfect example of why. I honestly felt so tempted to email Sugar Lips Apparel and ask them to do a custom-made dress in Junior size just so this little angel could have the same dress.  I was beaming my face off for the next few hours after that and the awesome bargains I picked up on my shopping spree did nothing to ease my aching cheekbones. Posting pics and details about that day's fiscal damage in a blog post soon.

  11. Hey Izzy!♥

    B E A U T I F U L !!! This dress is wonderful on you! The colors are so nice and you definitely did this dress justice! I loved how you accessorized it too! Kept most on your arms, and just subtle on your neck to draw the attention in to that wonderful neckline and bib style top. And great choice of the nude shoes!!!

    You killed it!♥

  33. Aww the little girl, adorable. Those moments are priceless. I've been thinking about career with children, but then again I would probably get reeeeally frustrated with the tantrums (well that does happen a lot with adults too:D)

    You look absolutely beautiful, your bf captures that so well on camera. And the dress, gorgeous. I love the asymmetrical hem & flowyness.. Your photoshoots are always so ethereal and chic ♥

    + You're welcome dear! Hehe my love picked number 69 (what a shameless man ;) and that turned out to be your entry nr 1, the comment. ^^ I'll send the package to you asap.
