If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love Peter Pan. I went by the online alias of Natatree Darling for years, Darling, after the Darlings in Peter Pan. It’s a story that means a lot to me, so when Black Milk released some Peter Pan designs, I knew I needed to snap one up.
I decided to try the shooter dress, as it was a style I’d never tried before. I love it, though I do find it a bit hard to style. It’s not a style I would normally wear, but after some playing around, I came up with this outfit. It’s fun to try new styles now and then, things a bit out of your comfort zone.
It’s a bit too short for me to wear as a dress, so I paired it with a short pleather skirt. Also, it’s Melbourne, and cold, so layers help keep me warmer. Now I really need to add the Peter Pan leggings to my collection.
Of course, I wore my crocodile earrings! Tick tock!

On Saturday, I attended an 80th birthday party at Lady Lavender’s Tea Room. I was in one of my ‘I have nothing to wear’ moods, and it decided to be 38°c. While this dress is a heavy and thick fabric, I decided a Tea Room would be the perfect place to bring out my favourite floral dress.
It’s been AGES since I’ve worn this dress, and it’s a little big on me now, even with my bolero tucked underneath it was roomy at the sides & I kept having to adjust myself. This will be one of those dresses that I will never part with though. It was my Grandmothers favourite dress on me.
I had such a lovely day. I was quite excited to have a Lime Spider! It’s probably been around 15 years since I had my last one. It was wayyyy sweeter then I remember, but fun for a treat.

Are you a fan of florals? Ever had a ‘spider’ before?
While I’ve called this ‘channeling Lorde’, I think I may be rocking a bit of a Lorde x 80’s Madonna love child! What can I say, I adore Lorde, not just her music, but her style! It’s refreshing to see someone so young, and in the music business be true to herself.
These City Chic velvet pants are SO comfortable! I tried them on recently in the sales and didn’t want to take them off! I figured even if I just wore them around the house, they were worth the $20! I’ve worn them high waisted here, but you can wear them a bit lower. They also have slits in the side, which works for the cooler weather. I kind of want to rock them with bright pink stockings underneath!
I couldn’t find my trusted black crop top, but never fear, I just used a regular black City Chic tee and tucked it under and into my bra. Works a treat! (The top was another sale score for $15!)
I’ve had these glasses for aaaages now, but they don’t get worn nearly enough! I thought they fit well with this outfit! Actually, now that I think about it, I could probably be the 5th member of the coven in The Craft or maybe an extra on American Horror Story: Coven!
