The Look: Gone With The Wind



Dress: Cotton On
Boots: Can't remember (they are so old, but still totally awesome!)
Sunglasses: Jeepers Peepers (Similar)
Necklace: Lovisa
Bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Here)

Photography by the amazing Matthew Barlow. I think you should check out his stunning work (here), you would be silly not to!

Ola, bonjour, 您好 and hello! (Love having an international readership!)

This weeks look is a conglomeration of everything I adore about the current 70s trend. Cue the flowy, whimsical dress dotted with earthy floral and paisley tones paired with marsala, faux-suede boots. As you can see by the photos: this dress is sheer to the max, so it was essential to layer on some goodies underneath so I didn't flash the poor general public! 

These super-retro Jeepers Peepers sunnies are the new item that my other half doesn't 'get'. He says that I look like 'Paul McCartney'- thanks babe, I've always wanted to look like a Liverpudlian man! But, non-the-less, I WILL wear them, just as I wear my 'Cruella De-ville' sunnies (here). 

The end of our shoot was highjacked by swopping plubbers. What the...? I hear you say.
 Basically they are a poisonous bird, so, yep, it was pretty scary! Luckily, Matt (the photographer) gave me a lighting umbrella to scare them away. He probably got some really awesome screamy photos though- haha!

Do you own a 'man repelling' pair of sunglasses?

  2. Funny, I would peg you for a John rather than a Paul. Much more visionary and wayyy cooler.

    I'm so jealous of your warm weather attire. You look so breezy and cool. I also love how you incorporated the "fall" 70s trend into your Southern Hemisphere summer look.

    Beware of the evil birds!

  39. Haha, I actually love those sunnies, and this whole look! It's so boho-chick-fun. Those shoes! I don't know if I own any sunglasses that my fiancé has strong feelings about, but he definitely does not like my uggs. They keep my feet warm in the snow, though, so he'll just have to deal ;)
