This dress is bound to be a summer favourite. It is an original from around 40 years ago, purchased from Suzie (Divinity in Design) who is great to deal with. It features the loveliest geometric skirt and a tie up top.
So where did I go yesterday? New Norcia - Australia's last remaining monastic town, about 1.5 hours drive north of Perth.
On the way back my friend and I spied a little dilapidated building which begged to be photographed. So over the barbed wire fence we went.
The floors were creaky and hole-ridden which added to the fun.
The house was full of old woven bags containing flour. But most of it had solidified. The writing on the walls indicated that it was regularly frequented in 1965.
Oh yeah, I failed to mention that this dress is COMPLETELY BACKLESS. Heads turn. Especially when worn with these heels (which are, by the way, totally and utterly comfortable).
Photos 1, 2, 5, and 7 taken by my friend Peter. 3, 4, 6, and 8 by moi! All in all, a very productive day.
