paper heart floral bow dress

Published on July 12, 2014

Dress: Paper Heart. Sunglasses: Rubi. Shoes: Kmart.

The first time I tried this dress on I was instantly in love. It is a kind of silky material with floral print, fitted under bust and flared skirt, backless with cute bow detail and a tulle skirt underlay. Unfortunately, it is too short for my tall self and as my boyfriend and I are planning our first trip overseas I sold it on EBay.


These pictures are a few months old now and I feel like my style has changed significantly since then but winter and work has really been getting me down lately so I haven’t taken any new photos or bought many new clothes. I want to concentrate more on experiences (like skydiving) than material things however saving seems impossible like there is always something that needs to be paid for. While I want to travel more than anything I do not have the money for it (update: we've booked a holiday to Bali in September, wooh!) so hopefully I can start showing you the magic of my local area, that is when I get a day off work, which I haven't for over a month now.

Also, my blog will soon be going through a massive makeover and to celebrate I will be doing an international giveaway for a black Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera for all of my followers, so watch this space!

  27. OMG! I'm wearing the skirt version of your dress on the blog. Loving the dress though, the back bow detail is really pretty. I guess it's a good thing I'm short so the length wasn't a problem for me.

  62. What an adorable dress, the shape of it is so unique and shows off your gorgeous legs! Also, is that a nose ring you're wearing? I love it! :)

    I think it's a great idea to concentrate more on experiences than buying things, because the memories you create will last you a lifetime. That's what I'm trying to do at the moment but it's difficult because I love to splurge when I go clothes shopping!

  106. How exciting! I would love to go to Bali! I agree with you. Lately, I've been spending more of my money on experiences rather than materialistic things but some things I just can't stop buying (like a pretty dress). So I've decided that if I were to buy something materialistic, it has to be worth it. So far, it's been good and I rarely shop!

    Anyway, that dress is soooo gorgeous on you!
