The Edit

That time I got photographed wearing a $7 dress at Fashion Week

Dress - Salvation Army, Cape - Witchery, Hat - Vintage, Bag - Handmade, Shoes - Dr Martens, Jewelry - Thieves & Co.

I think the title says it all. I'm a big believer that style is about mixing pieces to create a look. Fashion need not be expensive and my wardrobe is a combination of vintage and branded pieces.

This dress is possibly one of my favourite pieces at the moment. I love the splits and the length! The cape is also a well-loved piece. I remember when I first got it, I told everyone I was going to be wearing it when I carry my firstborn child in the future for the first time. Yeah, that's how much I love it. Wore my trusty docs because well, they're docs. The bag was knitted by my great-grandma and was passed on to my auntie, and now it's mine. Lastly, my jewelry is from Thieves & Co. which is a local brand by Grace Hodge. Each piece is quite raw and really unique. I think that's what I love most about it!
