The Look: Tropical Sunset

 
Dress: Mink Pink
Necklace: Lovisa
Sunglasses: Dress Link

It sounds strange, but this dress, to me, is on just the right side of tacky. As Karl Lagerfeld once said 'trendy is the last stage before tacky' and I think this dress sums up that statement. With chains, a crazy pattern and a bodycon shape, any more details would of made me look like a Mexican stripper. But I love it! 

Pairing it with a bohemian chunky necklace makes it more hippy, less strippy. I'm not normally a 'bodycon' type of girl as I have quite a curvy figure but I just adored the crazy pattern on this one; it's like the entire 'Saved By The Bell' TV series immortalized on one crazy dress.

These pictures were once again taken by my lovely boyfriend on our trip to Magnetic Island. We 4WD'd up a dirt track to a private beach on the west side of the island to experience this magnificent sunset. 

To put a smile on your face, here's some little cuties we saw on our trip:
