maxi love

( maxi dress: thrifted, vest & bag: vintage, bangle: diva, sandals: dotti )

This is by far my favourite maxi dress. I found it at one of my local thrift stores about 12 months ago. Its by Tokito (a myer brand), so its great quality and I love it to pieces. I would wear it to work too if it wasn't so low cut at the front! Plus I am much much happier with the outfit photos today, I think Scott did a great job.

Today Scott and I went into the city. Scott did a 3 hour photography course (which he received from my parents for Christmas), while I did some retail therapy. I didnt buy too much, just some basic tees, a pencil skirt and a dress. I'm in major need of re-vamping my wardrobe and making it more "work" appropriate.

How did you all spend your weekend?
Just finished listing some items on ebay, feel free to check them out by clicking here.

  16. I've actually shared for the last 3 years as well as doing ELS and casual work on my other days! I only do Thursday Friday on class atm, hopefully i can get some more though. the teacher I work with is pretty easy to work with which makes a difference. You'll be fine with it sharing is fine as long as your both on the same page. Have you just done casual work the other years? Haha sorry if i sound like im prying its just interesting to see what others have done :)
