After seeing my reaction to the Jesus Diamante dress she sent to me Marie (who is just about the nicest person ever), the owner of One Day in Paradise was lovely enough to send me 2 more dresses. Seriously, I was drooling when she dropped them off! I figured to show them off appropriately I would make a post with each dress co-ordinated in 3 different ways.
The first outfit I wore it in was to meet Julian Kynaston who is the founder of Illamasqua! Oh my gosh exciting 😀 I was so nervous but he gave an absolutely fantastically frank interview to us. Check out You’ve Got Nail and The Lip Print for footage of the day and I’ll be posting more of the photos next Snapshot post.
This outfit was the most fancy of the 3 I did with this dress.
This was the best shot I got of my outfit that day but clearly he and his suit was outshining me with it’s awesomeness!
I paired it with simple white stockings and shoes because I was running very late that day. My hair has curled and piled on top of my head/down the side for an effective style that took all of 5min not including the curling!Here is a better picture of the hair…
Yay for hair that is pretty fool proof to do 😀
The second time I wore the dress I was in Brisbane staying with my Dad while James and I were working there last week. This time I paired it with black accessories for a less sweet look.
My Dad’s house is full of fancy old knick knacks so I couldn’t resist taking extra photos while we were there.
Both of the bows on this dress are detachable so I wore one on the bottom and one at the small of the back under the lacing area.
This cardigan is one of my favorite things in my wardrobe, the best part: it only cost $3 😀 😀 😀
I was pretty happy that on this trip I managed to make curling my hair the day beforehand last all the way until the day after we came back! Yay for forward planning 😀
One last photo then I’ll stop for this time XD
The third time I wore this dress I wanted something a little more classic and how it was originally intended to be worn. No fancy make up, just low shoes, cute socks and a simple looped plait hair style. Definitely NOT Lolita but I suppose more towards that area that I usually dress XD
Obviously the dress was meant for Lolita so there was ample room for one of my old less floofy petticoats to show just how much room there is in the skirt. I prefer the shape a lot more without a petticoat but that’s just my taste. This time I pinned the larger of the bows on the top front.
This is a bit of a better view of the back so you can sort of see the lace up area.
Nice, casual and very comfy 😀
Taadaa, 3 outfits with different feels with 1 dress ^_^
