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!

I’ve been following Ezmae online for agggges now, so when she messages a group of Melbourne bloggers to see if they wanted to meet up, I jumped at the chance! I really love getting out and meeting other bloggers, it’s so nice to have conversations with people who understand what you’re talking about! I also got to meet Jacqui for the first time and spend more time talking with Kobi who I only briefly met at the Tess meet and great.
We met up at a place I’d never heard of called Section 8. It was pretty awesome and so Melbourne! It was made out of shipping containers and old packing creates and the likes, all open air and filled with gorgeous art/graffiti. We later moved on to E fifty 5, which had THE BEST $5 nacho pizza. I’m salivating just thinking about it!
Here I am, fiddling with Kobis camera as she took this photo with mine. I didn’t get any Outfit photos on the day, but in case you’re wondering, I’m wearing….

Kobi & Jacqui had to leave, so Ezmae and I decided to do a spot of shopping. I admit, I was slightly drunk! I hardly ever drink, but ended up having a few ciders. We checked out H&M, Myers and hit up Chatime. I got a grape slushie with grape jelly. I had a weak spot for grape! Luckily, Ezmae was staying out with family who was on the same train line I live on, so we caught the train home together.
