Dressing Like a Cartoon.. Again!
When I was a child, I would spend hours in front of the tv. As in the entire day. I was banned from watching until I did my homework – the ultimate punishment for a kid in the nineties! I was completely addicted to cartoons. Whatever was on – I’d watch! It’s a pretty stark contrast to nowadays, as I don’t even own a television! I do still have a massive soft spot for cartoons though, and think it’s a fair assessment to say they definitely influence my style – ahem, Madeline anyone? As soon as I laid eyes on this dress I received c/o 8000 Nerves, my cartoon fascination started all over again. The short length, bright colour, and flash of green had me thinking non-stop of Daphne, the infamous scarlet-lipped redhead from the Scooby-Doo adventures. I paired the dress with knee high socks and t-bar flats c/o bait footwear.
The sun is rapidly disappearing in New Zealand, as we’ve just stepped into winter. We managed to catch the end of the 5′o clock sun for photographs, as we headed out for an ‘evening’ walk. I love how knobbly the branches look at this time of year, and the sparseness of the flowers is oddly fascinating. I couldn’t resist smelling the flowers creeping through the fences – the lavender was my favourite, as always!
