Wow, a lot of swiss dots in this post. This dress one of few new-ish items in my wardrobe, and is by New Zealand designer Ruby Boutique, from a few seasons ago. I tried it on no fewer than 10 times in store, but couldn’t justify the $250 price tag that silly 16 year-old Georgia might’ve been able to. A month ago it popped up on Trademe (like the NZ version of eBay) for a very reasonable price though, and I decided if I still liked it after all this time it was meant to be. I’m so glad I snapped it up, I adore the little collar and layered skirt. And, inspired by Anja’s latest photo shoot, I filled my hair with bobby pins to achieve this braided style.
