Everything's Coming Up Roses

This outfit got me lots of comments the other day when I wore it shopping. It's always nice to have strangers stop and ask you were you got your dress from, or have an elderly lady say that I remind her of herself 60 years ago!

This dress was a cheapie from eBay and I spruced it up with a longer full circle white petticoat. I love how it showed underneath. The knitted boloero cardi was also on sale for $9 in a local clothing store. On principle, I never pay full price for something. Everything I purchase is on sale or Vintage picked up has to be cause' I buy so much of it!

Dress: Le Bomb
Cardi: Seven Angels, Bendigo
Wedges: Naughty Monkey, Highpoint Shopping Centre
Lippie: MAC Russian Red
Earrings: Rhinestone cherries from eBay
Sunnies: Vintage style from a HotRod show

On another note, I'm having a booth at the Handmade Market in Bendigo this Saturday at the Town Hall.  I have lots of lovely new jewellery and beads made, so if I have any local followers please drop by and say hello!

    Thanks again for your advice on cuticle remover in Oz, in the end I found one by Manicare that works. My sister in-law to be's mani looked great on her wedding day :)
