My Birthday!

On Saturday I drove down to Brisbane, Queensland (which is a 3 hour drive from where I live) and spent a few days down there. I Caught up with friends, family, had a couple of photo-shoots and I attended a friends baby shower.  Whilst I was in Brisbane it was actually my Birthday on the Monday and I got to spend a few hours with a gorgeous follow blogger whom I've been wanting to meet for a while now! A lot of you might know her as Miss Harlow Darling this is the link to her blog:  http://www.harlowdarling.com/
  We both meet up and had a lovely brunch together, chatted for a while and then went to the Brisbane Botanical gardens and took photos of each other!  I had such a wonderful time getting to know Miss Harlow better and taking photos with her, I hope to catch up with her again in the near future.
We both wore dresses from the vintage reproduction brand Retrospec'd   http://retrospecd.com/
I wore my Betty Fruit Basket dress by Retrospec'd.
 I adore the fruit basket print, the light cotton fabric, the pockets, length and all the colours on this gorgeous dress. This dress also came with a matching belt but I decided to wear another one instead.
I accessorized with a pair of flats from Payless Shoes
Fruit hair-piece was Your One Stop Pinup Shop   http://www.yosps.com.au/
Red cat-eye sunglasses from an ebay seller.
Necklace is vintage, bangles are thrift-ed, brooch is by Atomic Mingo 
Belt and wicker purse is by Pinup Couture   https://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/ 

I prefer taking blog photos with someone else as it's much more fun, easier and I feel a lot more braver taking photos out in the "public" with someone, other then on my own setting a timer on my camera. This weekend I hope to get some really great photos by the beach with Vera Gin Vintage.
I'm really happy that these photos turned out quite good, as being a little cloudy on the day helped with the photos not having a lot of glare to them.

I'm really looking forward to receiving my photos back from two photo-shoots I had done over the weekend and sharing them with you all in the near future!

Until next time!

  5. Happiness squeal! Blogger meetups are the absolute best! How exciting that you got to spend time with the always glamorous (and gorgeous) Harlow. She's such a lovely person (just as you are, sweet dear).

    This outfit is wonderful! I just love how the tall flowers in the background that you opted to shoot against here pick up the red in your dress and belt.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
