paper scissors floral skater

Published on February 10, 2014

Dress: Paper Scissors. Shoes: Naughty Monkey. Sunglasses: Rubi

I recently remembered you can buy perfectly good new or used dresses from EBay and that is exactly where I found this little beauty. The pictures weren’t too great and I was a bit iffy but the bid was really low so I decided to go for it. I scored it for $25.00 including postage and when it arrived I was absolutely amazed at how perfectly it fit, the quality and the condition it was in. 

The brand is Paper Scissors a little Australian dress company that usually supplies boutiques. It is a perfect skater style with fit bust and flared skirt from the waist. Gorgeous cut outs at the back and padding around the bust so you don’t have to wear a bra! 

Oh and these boots! My boyfriend and I were window shopping because we’re a little strapped for cash when we walked into London Rebel, I saw these and tried them on knowing perfectly well I could not afford them. I have been looking for boots like these for months and standing in the full-length mirror I fell in love and almost cried because I knew I couldn't have them. However, my wonderful boyfriend, without saying a word, scooped up the box, took it straight to the counter and bought them for me, he could see the want in my eyes.
