Sun Dappled Afternoons

I wish the festive season could go on forever. Lazing around drinking wine in vintage slips, eating strawberries, feeling the warm summer sun on my face and spending countless hours googling 1920s beauties is almost too good for words.

I am clutching onto the last few days of 2011 as I know once the New Year hits I am going to be working like a dawg before I head off to the USA in April.... Yahoo!!

Having said that I am off to soak up the last of the sun and watch the sky start to twinkle with 
incredibly bright stars - something I miss terribly whilst i'm in the city.

Christmas Cheer


Wishing everybody a very Merry Christmas filled to the brim with copious amounts of pudding and festive cheer! I will be spending the big day bare-feet indulging in family traditions.... drinking Pimms Number 1 Cup and eating all kinds of sweet treats from a Lazy Suzy. 

How do you spend your Christmas?

The Cherry Blossom Girl







What an honour it is to see beautiful Alix of the Cherry Blossom Girl wearing one of the custom dresses I created for Audrey Grace Boutique.

I just love seeing how each girl styles their Katie-Louise Ford dress, it isn't often that I get to see this but when I do it is such a treat and I am always so impressed with how they inject their own personality into the mix.

This dress can be purchased through Jaclyn of Audrey Grace Boutique - jbethany@fordham.edu 

Sounds of Nature


Currently drinking Champagne under twinkling fairy lights in my childhood home. 
Listening to Kookaburras laugh, frogs croak and ocean waves crash. After 5 years of city life I am so ready to return to a life of coastal tranquility.

Words can't describe how wonderful I feel right now!

Mittens on Kittens





Indulge me for a moment while I faff on about how much I love this dress. 
I'm not particularly a cat person but when I put this frock on I felt an instant kitteny madness consume me!

I was lucky enough to get my paws on a wee bit more fabric so currently have two more available in my etsy shop.

Meow!

On the Moors


I'm so tired and all I want to do is crawl into bed and watch Wuthering Heights. 
Oh wait, I did that last night...

Simple Pleasures




As Christmas creeps closer and closer I have found myself in a mad rush to finish up orders and handmade gifts, i've had cheesy carols on repeat just so I don't forget what's waiting just around the corner!

Despite my frock madness i've made sure to duck out every now and then for a cup of joe or french earl grey (tastiest tea in existence), to take in the air and feel the dappled Melbourne sunlight on my face.

Always Summer


If only it could be like this always - always summer, always alone, fruit always ripe….

Cheery Cheer





Some snapshots from my week.

My brain is still recovering from the past few months so I shan't say much. I've been having a leisurely start to the month soaking up the cheesy Christmas carols that seem to be blaring from every supermarket/outdoor mall and car window.... the desire to wear red everyday has begun to take over.

December holds many family occasions, a plethora of frocks to be sewn, a very special high tea date and hopefully some sunny beach days where I can wear my full sailor collar mini dress/bloomer/parasol get up!
