Summer in the City

"Summer in the city means cleavage, cleavage, cleavage."
The title of this looks is the Regina Spektor song Summer in the City and that is the first line of the song. I thought it was appropriate for this dress, for somewhat... um... obvious reasons.
It's not often a dress makes me look like I have any sort of cleavage (aaaand you can't really tell in these photos either...) but I do just the slightest bit in this dress, haha.
It is so not summer in Australia. But gosh I wish it were – this dress would be perfect for lounging around in the sun, or on the beach…sigh… Anyway, this dress is pretty incredible, not only is it handmade, but it is unique with its cut-out/tie-up front, and is made from the most gorgeous floral vintage-style fabric. I got it from the Chictopia shop! They've got heaps of pretty handmade things like this lovely dress.
I stubbornly decided to wear the dress out last night anyway, on the first night of winter. I’m pretty sure some people looked at me like I was crazy. Ah well.

Dress - Mod Dolly c/o Chictopia Shop

  12. Such a cool patter and cut of dress! I too could use a little help in the cleavage department! I was also meaning to ask you (since you are the one who introduced me to the site) if you have ever bought swimwear off of Wholesale dress? I am looking for an affordable swim suit but haven't found one I love yet!
    Have a good pretend summery day, this dress certainly does help!

    1. Thank you Hannah! :) No, I never have, I'm sorry! I have definitely thought about it though, swimsuits are just so darn expensive!!! I have no idea what the quality of swimsuits would be like... let me know if you do buy them and they're okay, I'd definitely think about buying swimmers from them then!

  13. Soooo cute. I love the little tie up front. And i can't get enough of photos with your little straw hat.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message! I read every single one. Don't forget to check back for a reply if you leave a question! ♥
