Outfit Thirty Four











 ♥ Modcloth Petite Pachyderm Clip . Modcloth Show You Care Cardigan . Ditzy Granny Vintage Dress . Bird Locket Necklace . Salvatore Ferragamo Bow Belt . San-X Sentimental Circus Elephant Plush Toy . Tiffany & Co. 1837 Lock Ring . Agnes B Ring Set . Leona Edmiston Tights . Salvatore Ferragamo Varina Ballerinas ♥


This pretty little number I am wearing here has not been named just yet. The moment I found her, I had to wear her before listing her in my shop for fear she might be snapped up immediately, and I would have no photos to remember her by. 

She not only comes with that beautiful lace collar that is detachable, but also carries with her a lovely little flower pin that is just so pretty. :) I hopefully would be able to part with her soon and list her on Ditzy Granny Vintage.

That cute elephant was the gift Bunny bought for me for our last monthly anniversary, and just another example of how much he indulges me. My room is filled with plush toys on every conceivable surface, and he still buys me more despite being rather horrified by my 'decorations'. 

The bird locket necklace is my newest gift from my sister, who popped by Sydney on transit for a few hours two weeks ago. She has since flown to Hawaii, Seattle, and is now holidaying in Japan with my mom as I type. I sure wish I was a jet-setter like her. 

My nail polish shade in this post is my favourite of all the colors I have worn so far. It is such a lovely pinky shade, with the cutest glitter infused within. I have to stop myself applying it week after week haha. ;D

And I did promise you that I would elaborate a little on my latest adventure. 

Well, I have got a new job as a Communications Manager in a major telecommunications company here so it's exciting days for me! The only un-plus point would be that it's terribly far from my house and I actually spend 3 hours driving to and fro everyday. 

This leaves me so little time to blog, and I am sure you have noticed my posting schedule has gone a bit out of whack. I have been struggling to reply to each and every comment as I usually do, but I am still keeping up, though barely. :( 

I will hopefully find a way to juggle my time on weekdays between my new position, cuddling Lulu as she naps in the evening, cooking dinner every night, calling my dad daily to check on him (he is in Perth now looking after my sister's cats), blogging, making sure Bunny and me have our usual long chats about our day, doing my laundry, listing new items in Ditzy Granny Vintage and finding some time to sleep.

Till then, my sincere apologies if I am commenting on your blogs in a really belated fashion. ♥♥

xoxo

    How are you finding it so far?
    Absolutely adore the elephant - I can't believe you and Bunny celebrate monthly anniversaries. That couldn't be cuter!!
    Hope you are well and finding time for yourself. That is a lot of driving! :(

  50. congrats on your new job! 3 hours traveling time is like wow! Imagine me complaining when it's just 1 hour. Your vintage dress is so pretty! The heart shape cardi is so lovely too. I'm intrigued that your outfits always have a theme, you're so immaculately and uniquely chic! The elephant is so cute. If I hadn't got an allergy to fur and dust mites I would probably stuff my room with softies too.

  54. Oh Addie congratulations on your new job! Can't wait to hear how it's going, sounds like a really stimulating position.
    AND, your outfit is absolutely lovely! Every detail looks just perfect!

  55. Oh my gosh, you poor dear! I thought driving 45 minutes to work was bad...I'm not sure I could deal w/ a 3 hour commute, yikes! Sounds like a wonderful opportunity though. I love the soft pastel colors of your outfit. Kind of reminds me of an ice cream shoppe:) The pink and polka dots and your locket and elephant are all incredibly darling. You really know how to put the icing on the cake with your accessories:)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh, polka dots! Lace collar! Love! :)

    3 hours is a terribly long time... I guess it's out of the question for the manager to work from home a few days a week... Poor you! Hope it won't tire you out too much...

  57. Love the ekephant. And all the rest for sure! Congrats on your new job, dear! I'm so happy for you even though you have less time for blogging.

    ps i just read in an old post of yours that you're a Man U fan!?? That's crazy! I'm from Manchester myself O_O! I have a slightly strange connection to the team as well haha my Grandads cousin actually named the team as he used to be a huge shareholder in it! It's kinda weird O_o !
