Happy FRIDAY! Firstly: THANKS for all of your well wishes with my tooth!!! It's lovely to have such wonderful bloggy friends, so A BIG THANK YOU! :D
Secondly - here's the PROMISED designer dress I bought last Friday! NZ designer Trelise Cooper sells fabulously flamboyant clothes, full of ruffles, patterns, prints, sequins, bows and fabulousness. Did I mention that they're fabulous!? But not cheap. :(
HERE are some of her pieces:
WELL! Last weekend there was a TC pop-up sale shop in the Opera House. So a colleague and I strolled on down at Friday lunchtime. Everything was pretty amazing, and I had to stop myself from buying many an item (times like that I needed that magic credit card that never exists!!). I tried on several items (IN A COMMUNAL CHANGING ROOM!! EEK! Thankfully I had a nice Elle Macpherson bra on!!) but whittled it down to one BLACK dress. Oh, and it's called Dynasty Diva. LOVE. IT.
Yes I shocked myself coming away with a black dress when there was such flamboyance available. But I figured a black dress can be worn over and over again, so was a better investment.
WARNING! These photos were taken at 2.30am after a tumble in Burger King!! (Yes, good question: what was a vegetarian wearing Trelise Cooper doing in BK in the first place?!)

In hindsight, the dress is a bit too big. When I tried it on, I thought it was a bit loose but wearable....when I got home I realised I'd been taken in with the spur of the moment pressure, and it needs a bit of a nip and tuck. I put a little skinny belt with it, but think I will have to seek out a tailor. Pah!
Have you ever bought anything in the spur of the moment and later realised it wasn't quite right?!
