Tropical Rainforest!

A few months ago I ordered my second dress from one of my favorite etsy stores called Hearts and Found
I have previously blogged the first dress I ordered from the same company here's the link to that: Colourful Chevron
I just love the idea of ordering from vintage inspired fashion companies that offer custom made dresses to fit your measurements, your dress style, length and fabric print choices that Hearts and Found does.
The owner Marjorie is very accommodating to answering any questions you may have!
There are many dress styles and prints to choose from, plus you can also purchase skirts and tops from Hearts and Found.  All clothing are shipped worldwide from Vietnam, where Marjorie and her etsy store is located.
The dress I'm blogging this week is called "Margherita sarong dress Freaky Tiki in black and red Hawaiian floral hibiscus palm leaves print".
It's such a great dress to wear over summer (especially here in sub-tropical Queensland, where I live).  It's made from a light breathable 100% cotton and I adore the tropical/Hawaiian fabric print.  Other wonderful features is the sarong style, the skirt wraps across the front and ties on the side.  Also the longer length (that I requested for my taller height), and the removable halter-neck tie straps if I want to wear this dress strapless!
It also has a back metal zipper, boning in the bust area for enhanced structure and elastic panels at each side of the bodice.
I highly recommend on ordering from Hearts and Found, if you want a well-made custom vintage inspired outfit that's to your personal style!
Accessories Include:
Black flats from Payless Australia
Vintage wicker purse thrifted
Faux pearl necklace Collectif  
Hair-flowers and sunglasses from a local accessories boutique
Red-hoop earrings from Revere Folie 

These photos were taken a few weeks ago at Noosa Botanic Gardens. These beautiful gardens are located on The Sunshine Coast, Queensland.  I knew I had to find a tropical/rainforest background to take my blog photos wearing this tropical/tiki inspired dress!  I just love finding locations that match the outfit I'm wearing for my blog photos!  Just to give my photos a more authentic feel and look to them.
In other news this weekend I need to start buying some Christmas presents, as I haven't started yet!
I also have my work Christmas party this Saturday night and Sunday afternoon/evening I'm taking my sister to watch Christmas carols in the park!
I can't believe how fast this year has flown by and Christmas is nearly upon us, just crazy!  I have bought a few Christmas accessories this year to wear, a couple of brooches and I'm waiting on a Christmas hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral.
Also I still haven't receive any of my purchases from the Black Friday sales, hopefully I'll get them soon!

Until next time!

  4. You look lovely and the dress looks so pretty on you! I like the detachable straps and the dress actually looks even better without straps, so flattering :)

    I have yet to order from Hearts and Found, but I hope to do that at some point. They have such amazing designs and it's so nice that you can choose the fabric and the length and have it custom made to your measurements. I'm a tall girl with a pear shape so having a custom made dress would be so lovely!
