It's fair to say that today's blog post wasn't going to exist until I had a sudden change of heart. These photos have been sitting on my camera for a few days now after I wasn't initially happy with them. I drove to a pretty little woodland and I don't know what was going on with me that day, but my camera skills and general face poses were all off. Does that sound totally ridiculous? We all have off days when us girls hate every photo- delete, delete, delete...oh no what have I done I have no photos?!
Lots of you ask who takes my photos and majority of time it's just me and my friend Miranda (my tripod!). If I'm somewhere more public it's usually Jon when we have a day off together. I'm forever practising with my photography and always striving to get better shots. It's tough because I on one hand like to get creative and drum up something magical and lovely. I have a zillion ideas in my head how I would like something to look but just can't quite seem to always nail it in terms of focus and aperture etc.

Anyway back to today's dress. WOW. Where do I begin to stress how much I am in love with dress? The first time I had the pleasure of seeing this beauty of dress by Diksi was on the very wonderful Miss Paige Joanna. In one of her most beautiful posts- (aren't they all beautiful?) 'She Wakes up confused'. When she decided to have a blog sale (which is seriously worth checking out while there's some gems left! ie: her mermaid shoot dress) I was delighted to see the magical purple dress was in there and I quickly snapped it up. She really does have the most beautiful taste in clothing and some of the most fantastic personal styling on the net.
The minute I tried this on almost instantly put me into a magical, fairy kind of state. I felt calm, magical and girlie. I felt like I wanted to break into a classical ballet number with this beautiful - and I might add glittered tulle skirt. It really is the most breathtaking dress and I plan to wear this again later this month to a friends wedding. I kept it really simple and pure with minimal makeup with just some barbie coloured lipstick by MAC 'Pink Nouveau' a shade I haven't worn in a very long time and I feel it suited this outfit perfectly.
Hoping you have a lovely day!
