Remember a while ago the lovely Marie from One Day in Paradise sent me some dresses? I showed you the ways I co-ordinated the first one over here. I promised to show the other dress and the shoes she also gave me and here it is!
You’ve seen the first couple of co-ordinates before in other posts but my favorite one is at the bottom.
I first wore it at a Keihls event.
I wore it again up in Brisbane, it’s made of a fairly heavy fabric so it doesn’t crease easily. Perfect to throw in a suitcase.
Again perfect suitcase material so I wore it the second day at the Langham 😀 The pearl/bow chain at the front unclips so I wore it as a bracelet too.
This next one is my favorite co-ordinate though, because the fabric is so nice and thick it’s perfect for winter here.
Stockings: Myer Shoes: 7 Angels (I think, it was one of those discount clothing stores along Swanston St) Gloves: Junk Store Neck thingy: Present from my Mother Shirt: SES
All of that fluffiness makes it so nice and warm!
The skirt is huge with ample room for a petticoat if you choose to wear one.
The front bow also detaches and so could be moved around or worn in your hair etc. The pearls used are glass too so they have a nice weight unlike the cheaper plastic pearls a lot of companies use.
My absolute favorite part of the dress is a fluffy adorable faun applique! SO CUTE!
The back of the dress has crossing lace up to make it completely adjustable. Unrelated but my hair is getting so looong!

And a better view of the lace and detailing:
Love this dress very much, it’s been a really good staple of my Winter wardrobe 😀 Thank you One Day in Paradise, I’m such a lucky girl!
Along with the dress Marie dropped off a pair of shoes for me, because we walk everywhere now I’m always looking for good walking shoes. I love my Bodyline shoes to death but I can’t wear them every single day XD
Please excuse the fur on my stockings, I had just taken off the boots from the shots above and the are shedding like crazy because I haven’t brushed them through yet >_< Of course the camera flash picks up a lot more detail than my eyes do!
So the shoes have cute little heart buckles on the sides, lace details ad bows on the front and backs. They are made of very thick material (thicker than my Bodyline ones) and don’t seem to scuff easily.
The heel is not very high at all and considering the front has a small platform too it makes them very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The soles are quite grippy too do they don’t do badly in the rain.
Very cute for many different outfits and styles!
Thank you again so much Marie! I always have so much fun doing these posts and dressing up 😀
