Lace and chiffon - 1

First off, Rhesa, I love these photos!  That bed of orange on the ground is the perfect picture of autumn and the detail shots are so full of interest and colour.  Although the outfit itself is quite simple overall, the little patches of detail are more than enough to complete the outfit.  Matching a plain white t-shirt with this full on skirt created the perfect look and thus this outfit really didn’t take much brain power to put together.  The addition of some cool arm candy and a chunky-ish beaded necklace also added extra interest.

This feature skirt was made by my older sister, Lydia, after she saw some similar patchwork skirts selling at a market.  They were extremely pricey, so she decided to make one of her own.  (Please note that she did not steal this idea to sell, just to try out herself).  It was a lengthy process, but after gathering chiffon and lace and sewing them together she achieved this awesome, feminine, patchwork skirt!

Enjoy the photos.  See how you can nicely feature one statement piece by keeping the rest of the outfit relatively simple?

Turquoise - 1

Finally I’ve found the time put up my next post, the first of a few cute outfits that I’ve been wearing recently.  Well, recently when we shot these pics, but since then the weather has turned bitterly cold.  Well, bitterly for the North Island of NZ anyway.

The weather really started to kick in on Tuesday when we had lightening and massive claps of thunder followed by a sudden and huge! downpouring of hail.  The driveway had drifts of it and the the ground was covered in it!  Closest to snow we get here I’m afraid, but needless to say, my bros and I took the opportunity to stop our work and school and run out to have a hail fight!  Perks of homeschooling, huh?  A ton of fun.

Right, so onto this outfit… loving this lace top that I bought on sale from Glassons – $18!  Just needed a few repare stitches and was good as new!  I really like wearing bright colours – and this turquoise cardigan, gifted from Mum, was the pefect thing to wear with the clean, white lace.  The matching pop of colour underneath the lace looks cool too!  I added some nice high wedges (you’ve seen them before), my favourite jeans from Just Jeans and a cool retro necklace that belonged to Mum.  I stoles it.  😀

These pictures where taken when the maple tree was just changing colour and the cosmos pink was still showing.  Things have changed since then… but the darkness all comes before the light.  Summer’s coming guys!  …in quite a few months…

Thinking of starting a Facebook page?  What do you all think?

I recently joined together with a group of guys to participate in the 48 hour film festival that is held annually in NZ.  We created an epic film with the genre we were given – horror.  That’s not my kinda thing, but I had such fun putting my acting hobby to use in this short film.  The guys I worked with were super talented – hats off to them!  Here’s the link if you’re interested – https://vimeo.com/67035550  Had a lot of fun creating this, and I’ll definitely share anymore films that we may make in the future.

Bless you all!  Lydia’s 21st party tomorrow… lots to do.
