Village of Hazelton

26.6.10

The official 'sister & me' day. We engaged in one of my favourite past times- people watching, while having a lovely 3 hour lunch (yes, we like to completely digest our food and get crazy hungry even before leaving the restaurant) on a very sunny terrace. Then it was off to shopping for randoms, the bookshop, and of course stopping  off for some apple and cinnamon pie with a nice cup of tea. 

dress- vintage, shoes- aldo, jewellery- thrifted/h&m

I am wearing this vintage dress I bought a little while back from 69 Vintage. I love the shapes that immediately got me thinking of fiery dragons for reasons unknown. I decided to pair it with leggings since I felt it a tad too short; and was not too trusting of the wind. Surprisingly enough, the dress remained faithful and stayed defiant against the gusts of wind that were looking to shame me. Ha! Might wear it again sans the leggings.


Hope you are all having a pleasant weekend!


Bisous,
Abs

Thanks for all your lovely comments :) I'll be stopping by all your blogs (for those who have one) and leaving feedback incase you don't see this, but do come by more often if you do ;). Ha!

I fell in love with the deep red and the pattern when I spotted it.

@ tywo: I could ship it to you if you ask nicely :P

@BALKAN COUTURE: I wasn't too sure about the shoes initially, but it didn't look too shabby.

@Sarah: maybe I'll have to do a giveaway soon-ish?
