White + Red + Stripes

I've mentioned before that I will essentially be living in white for the warmer months. What better way to repel the deathly stinging rays of the Australian summer than white. The past few months now I have been collecting a lot of white tops, looking back at them I notice a theme, they're all soft and billowy and have some sort of crochet or lace on them. I guess I'm going to look a lot like a hippy pharmacist, I'm down with that!

This dress was born from a culmination of frustration and bad luck. I found a similar dress at Zara, after walking away from it and telling myself I didn't need it, I eventually went back to try and get it.  However the material was so thin that there was a hole or a pull on every single one of them and I ain't parting with my hard earned moulah for that, ok maybe not hard earned, just earned!

I searched the interweb and practically every website known to a crazy online shopper and found nothing that I loved in my price range. So I trekked it to my local Korean fabric shop, bought this white material for $4 per metre and sat down and finally used my brain to create a pattern. There was definitely some trial and error as I went. Luckily, I perceive myself to be wider than I am so there was a lot of room to make mistakes and just take them in towards the end. Pretty chuffed about the end result!

Plus how amazingly cute are these Soludos striped espadrilles, I can't get enough of them! I love the whimsy of being able to tie a bow at the back plus they are super comfy!

Hope you all had a great Sunday! xxx

*** SOLD *** FOR SALE: Vintage Chanel Jumbo XL Quilted Flap

I purchased this item pre-loved from eBay in June 2007. The eBay seller is a recommended seller of vintage Chanels from The Purse Forum. The seller was based in Victoria, Australia.

The bag was made between 1991-1994, so it's over 20 years old.

I have taken care of this and ensured I avoided staining or scratching it. As I have worn it and probably the owner previous before me has worn it, there are obviously signs of wear. Photos were taken outside on an overcast day, photos have not been doctored or altered in any way. I wanted it to show every scratches and/or scuffs to show the condition of the bag.

The bag used to have a musty odour, however I read up on how to get rid of it and it's to stuff some newspaper inside the bag and that seems to have gotten rid of it, I can no longer smell it.

The item will come with the dustbag, care booklet and authenticity card.

I do not come from a pet-free home, I have two fluffy cats.

Payment can be made via Paypal or Bank Deposit if you're in Australia.

I am only comfortable sending the bag out insured, it covers both the buyer and seller if anything happens to it during transit. Please contact me for shipping quotes.

Price is $XXXX and can be negotiable, however I will not respond to lowball offers.

For any questions, please contact me at

Thank you!
