So I have decided that I can't have my What I Am Wearing and other shopping tidbits without the personal side of me.

The Girl Behind The Dress is now my new personal blog. The posts from here will be moved.

Last change.

Shoe Shopping

So you all know how I wanted a pair of nude shoes and found a few other pairs that I loved?

Well I went shopping tonight and guess what I bought! *winks*

Apologies for the voice, I am sick at the moment. And for swearing.

Note: I did not orgasm on the camera. I was talking about when I put them on of course!


I Heart Shoes

Since reading Styling You's post about NUDE shoes I went a little crazy looking at shoes.

Most of which are nude in colour. A couple are a little different.

Can I has them all please?

Oh Look, A Sale!

I was at Broadway shopping centre this afternoon.

I had to have blood taken that was the whole reason that I was there.

I knew that I shouldn't be shopping because I completely overspent last fortnight and left myself with only a small amount of money.

After the blood was taken I wandered into Portmans and found a gorgeous dress. Almost a hundred and forty dollars so I put it back.

I smiled a little at myself. That was mind-blowing self-control that I had just displayed.

Pity it was only in that store.

I am about to walk past Jeanswest when I notice, 30% OFF DRESSES staring at me.

How on Earth could I not walk in?

Three dress. A hundred and forty dollars later I walk out with a smile.

Shopping makes me happy.

I then walked into Wittner looking at the shoes I had found online.

They were the rudest retail peoples I had ever met. After that little experience I will never shop in there again. There are some stores where you do not require too much assistance, but in a shoe store it is kind of expected that you want help.

I literally walked out of the store without the assistant even noticing.

I then headed up a level and ate.

I thought I was going home. That was until I noticed a very sexy blazer in Cotton On calling me.

I swear it was calling out to me.

A dress, a top and that blazer later I walked out. Spending a hundred and five dollars.

"I better leave," I thought and quickly left the shopping centre.

Gawd I am terrible at this self-control thing but it is only because shopping makes me happy. Oh so happy.



What I Am Wearing ~ Navy/White Stripe Jumper


[Sizes ~ French Connection: 10; Witchery: 14; Havaianas: 41.]

* Australian-based sizing.

ps. The jumper has cute bows down the back and I almost squealed loudly from the changerooms when the size ten fit me.
pps. Was also $129.95 down to $79.95 ~ BARGAIN!


Shoe Shopping

I love shoes and until recently I really didn't own that many pairs.

That being said, over the last few months I now own at least ten pairs of shoes.

Something which I just don't feel is enough.

Am currently in the process of "fixing" this situation, believe me!

I have one of those Wittner cards. I think I am still at the newbie level as I purchased a pair of black patent wedges from there back in June.

Anyway, I received at little $20 off any purchase. Bargain right?

I just can't decide which shoes I love the best.

Wait, I do love them all but I don't really have the spare $360 lying around to buy all three pairs.

Sad but true.

So, if it was you, which pair would you buy?

I have a thing for wedges it seems..

* I really like the black patent AND the red patent. One of each?


Polly Dolly ~ Kaftan

Each week, usually on a Thursday Danimezza publishes her "Polly Dolly" challenge.

This week is all about the kaftan and since I found this gorgeous suit on Mod Cloth I have been tempted to play around with dressing it up for summer.

I grew up on the beach so I know how important wearing sunscreen is. This girl has a tonne of freckles already and I am all for caring for your skin. Hence that little bottle of SPF 30+.

The black suit is a classic cut and I think it will suit my body perfectly. Cannot wait to make that purchase! The kaftan is a gorgeous colour. One that I probably would never wear, because I do have pale skin. Ahh, the beauty of polly dolly.

Those wedges would make my legs look long combined with those shorts. I currently have a small obsession with demin shorts [*looks down* currently wearing a pair right now from Witchery!]

So here it is, my kaftan combo:

Online ~ Mod Cloth

I have always looked at Mod Cloth's clothing since Fat Mum Slim showed me [and everyone else who reads her fab blog] a link to their site.

I fell in love.

Lusting after their clothes but never making a purchase.

Thinking it would be too easy to get dodgy products.

Oh boy was I wrong.

Their clothing is of exceptional quality.

Every piece that I purchased is excellent make. All three pieces being dresses.

While two pieces [the Deep Blue Sea Dress and Peachy as Could Be Dress] are a little on the short side, they will look gorgeous with tights or stockings underneath.

And as for the other dress I purchased, it was love as soon as I had it on.

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

I will wear it as my graduation dress. Pity I cannot dress it up with these accessories.

But it will still look amazing!

Would I buy from Mod Cloth again?
Yes, in a heartbeat. While you have to pay for shipping, which compares greatly to ASOS free shipping, but my items were shipped almost immediately! I cannot go past their high quality products.

What am I lusting after now? A Bathing Beauty One Piece in Black.
