Floral + Chains

Capelet - F21, Dress - Alice McCall, Purse - Foley & Corinna, Shoes - Lanvin
Necklace - Marc by Marc Jacobs

I felt like a bit of a modern day Audrey Hepburn in this get up by one of my favorite Aussie designers, Alice McCall. The thick floral-y brocaded fabric and bustier top is reminiscent of 1950's glam, an era which was the absolute essence of femininity. So. Epic. And who doesn't love gold chains for some extra umph? Ok, maybe not everyone, but I DO! :)

On another note, I'm thinking I either need to go to Vegas or play the lotto cause I won not one but TWO giveaways this week. I mean, seriously?! A big thank you to All Natural Annie & Diana Kang who both bring some major awesome sauce to the table...Check em out...xo

Love this! I love the thicker/retro/needle-point-esque feel of the fabric, it totally takes it to another level. And the chain necklace is perfect! I am jealous bc I have been looking for the perfect bold chain necklace for months!
