Fireweeds & Flowers in my Hair...

This is one of my favourite dresses. It was one of the first "pricier" dresses I treated myself to. I tried to wait for it to come on sale, and it just didn't seem in my favour. Finally, one day, I splurge and hit the checkout button. I've posted it a few different times, but really, I wear it often. It's a dress that I don't like in the winter, because it's so long and flowy, I feel that tights ruin the look of it. And it's so great on it's own that I rarely add much to accessorize it... maybe a belt, maybe a brooch... a cardigan if it's cold. 

dress: hell bunny via modcloth
shoes: ruche (old)
belt: from another dress
sunglasses: amazon

Today was one of the days I felt the need to post it. I still didn't really remix it compared to my usual styling, but I did opt for a couple of purple orchids in my hair and pink lipstick. When I mentioned wanting to post some photos of it on my blog, Dominic immediately spotted these wild fireweeds in our backyard and said how they'd go perfectly with my hair-flowers. He's such a smartie!

He was absolutely right. The flowers not only matched my hair flower, but perfectly complimented the green of the dress. I had a lot of fun posing in the tall flowers... even with the abundance of bees around me. I just want to put on all of my pastel, flowy dresses and go walk through these flowers!

  1. You look dreamy. Sometimes, even if they aren't as remixable, you have to splurge for the dress. I've a similar gingham one from Hell's Bunny that sees a lot of use.

  2. Precious! The dress is a great shape and color.

  6. So glad I found your blog, it's a beauty! This dress is so pretty, but I can't over the shoes. They must go with nearly everything :) Can't wait to see more from you!
