Ermie Topanga dress

I have been a fan of Ermie and her gorgeous prints for a while now so when M from Pretty Mommy posted her gorgeous picture and that a new shipment had just come in, I jumped on the chance to get the Topanga maxi dress in the Souvenir print. 

Those that know me know that purchasing something is usually a painstakingly slow process.  I obsess over colors, the fabrics, the cost per wear, etc. (you should see me try to pick out produce at the grocery store) so I was afraid this was an impulse buy.  But fortunately, it turned out to be the best type of impulse buy (the dress is already sold out) and I LOVE it to bits!  It is made from the softest jersey that is still thick enough to drape and flow over your body.  The print is so unique and just genius.  And...the dress can be worn in two ways as the reverse is a v neck with a pleat down the front.  A two-fer!

You can check out other Ermie goodness here (I'm already stalking the Raku sundress!) and Pretty Mommy's enviable selection of items here--she carries the best designers and provides such great customer service.

Vintage batik dress

I love batik prints and this vintage one caught my eye while shopping on K'road in Auckland.  Most of the vintage I found was priced pretty high but there was this one shop where everything was either $10 or $15--my kind of store!  I spent a short minute thinking about hemming the dress to a more flattering length before the writing on the hem stopped me.  Google sadly has failed me--anyone have any info on the maker?

Dress: vintage from New Zealand
Shirt: Jcrew

It's been a busy few days in New Zealand--lots of hiking, great scenery, and delicious food.  Here's a little something I found at Newmarket today!
