knits and bows

(knit: thrifted, jeans: dotti, flats: rubi, bag: forever new, necklace: wholesale dress)

Today Scott and I started packing our suitcases for our holiday to Greece & Malta and this is what I wore! Excitement! We also went to our local shopping mall, for some last-minute buys, a car wash and a hair cut. We leave this Friday night, and there is still so much to organise and do before we go.

I still havent had the chance to edit all the photos and video footage from our Christmas in July party..... but its definatley on my to-do list for this week and I will definatley post about it before we leave for our holiday.

The necklace I am wearing I bough recently from this Asian wholesale website which I would not recommend at all! They are called wholesale-dress and sell a variety of different clothing and accessories. This is the second time I've shopped from them and it will also be the last. The first time, I was reasonably happy with the quality of the items I bought, the prices are dirt cheap so I couldn't really complain, they havent fallen appart and I still wear those pieces from time to time (I had bought three dresses). More recently I purchased another few dresses and this necklace.... I waited for what seemed like forever for my items - Long story short, nothing arrived, they said they sent it and it came back so I lost postage money and then replaced the order minus a few items. They were very unprofessional during our communications, lacking basic customer service skills. On a brighter note, the items I did receive fit me perfectly and I love my new bow necklace!


  1. You have such a sweet little blog here! Have a ton of fun on your international make me so jealous!

  3. wholesale dress really do lack customer service skills - or english skills!
    me and my friend ordered from them so many times with so many problems! we just resorted to speaking to them in very basic english that even non-english speakers could understand. that seemed to work :P

  5. darling darling darling!! didn't you see my ranting about how awful they were when i dealt with them? i never ever got my refund and an item they were supposed to send but didnt. so bad!! it is a cute necklace but definitely not worth the hassle when there are better online stores to deal with out there. i bet you are excited for Greece. im so jealous! i need to be overseas again

  6. Oh how I love your outfit! It is so simple and classic- perfect for the weekend. And have fun on your trip! It sounds like quite a wonderful adventure. Good luck packing (that is always the hardest part for me). xx
