Before I get into the special outfit post of the day I just wanted to put in a little announcement. I’ve been nominated for the Sydney Writer’s Centre “Best Australian Blogs Competition”! Very exciting 😀 I’m not sure the category I’m up for but as well as the regular awards I’ve been nominated for the People’s Choice Award!

If you would like to vote in the awards (not just for me, there are lots of other amazing bloggers nominated too) just click the banner below to be taken to the form. If you want to vote for me I’m on the 3rd page of blogs under V for Violet ^_^

So yeah I just wanted to say thank you to all of you reading this because when I started this blog years ago I had no idea the awesome places it would take me or the wonderful people I would meet, so THANK YOU for reading!!!

People's Choice Award

Now on to today’s outfit post! This is a special version of this too because the outfit was a huge surprise ^_^ You remember last year when I held the One Day in Paradise competition for their 1 year anniversary? I found a beautiful Jesus Diamate dress and debated with you guys in the comments and on Twitter whether I should buy it. Well last week a package turned up in my letterbox. Turns out Marie (who is the incredibly sweet owner of One Day in Paradise) sent it to me as a present *_*I just about had a heart attack when I opened the box!!


So ruffly and pretty!


I wore this outfit to meet Thomas and Sakie who are lovely bloggers from Japan. So happy because I finally got an excuse to try Max Brenner too XD Photos of that to come in the next edition of snapshots.

This is the kind of dress you just want to spin in XD


Totally love it, can’t wait to try out different ways to coordinate it!
