My mum decided to send me a 'care package' the other day with some magazines, recipes and this fantastic knitting pattern book. Yep, it's an original 80s beauty and my mum found it at a thrift store after I was saying that I was looking for a batwing sweater (or dolman sweater as they are sometimes called) to knit.
Not only does this pattern book have a batwing sweater but also an array or multi-coloured dazzlers that would either shock or be super cool! Really depends on your stance about 80s fashions. I figure seeing I embraced the 'legging' while I was overseas, mostly for comfort after having my hip tattooed, rather than fashion; that I could embrace one of these 80s shockers.
Do you think that you could be a sweater girl from the 80s?

This dress has a great hemline and would be perfect for me in the gallery! It looks carefree but stylish and I'm thinking a solid colour like they have here but with some wild tights!
I love the shape of this dress, the skirt is a little tulip like and it has pockets!! I didn't realize until I looked at the pattern sketch that the sleeves are broken up into smaller panels, allowing you to add different fabrics. This could be alot of fun to make.
Yes, I did add this one for a bit of a laugh! It's a evening mumu! I'm not really sure what they are thinking with this bat-winged satin number but I have to say that it may not be so bad if it was shorter? I would be prepared to give it a go... but much shorter!
How cute is this jumpsuit!!!! I'm not really a jumpsuit person, I find getting in and out of them a bit of a hassle but this looks so cute.
This dress has all of my favourite elements. Great hidden pockets, plunging v-neckline and a puffy skirt. I can't wait to try this one!
Some of these patterns are a little pricey, so I will be waiting until they come on sale to buy but I am excited to try some of these when I have some time. Yay to you Vogue!

Yup, Mark and I got married at our favourite bar, Baranows Cigar Lounge on Sunday 7 March. We had such a blast with about 40 of our closest and most fun friends. Our wedding ceremony was pretty quick, we didn't want a celebrant to go on forever about how we met and all of that, considering everyone that was there knows us so well.
Mark and I kind of went with a 1920s theme. My dress was made by my mum and was a replica of a 1920s tango dress. Mark had a beautiful tuxedo suit made, with a custom shirt from Henry Bucks bespoke people and hand made shoes from Rocco's.
The guys at Baranows were fantastic! They created a gorgeous range of cocktails especially for our wedding day and managed to get Belvedere to sponsor the event with vodka and some cute paraphanalia as well. As usual, Jess from Sugadeaux did us a cake to die for!!!
I wanted to say a huge thank you to all that made it to our day and their well wishes. I think one of the cutest things was my Dad telling me that he liked my new tattoo, seeing my mum freaked out about the size of it and 'the dress'. I'll leave you with some happy snaps.
