Fashion Find Of The Week: 2 Long Tales

This weeks find is 2 gorgeous full-length dresses, priced at a basement bargain of $15 from Hampton Salvos Op Shop.  The first is from seed femme, and with its’ deep navy voluminous wavy lengths and roped waist detail,  I get a distinctly nautical vibe from it. Perfect for those slightly cooler summer evenings, or for when I’ve been too lazy to shave my legs but have to go out in public.

Bendigo, Toni Maticevski & A Dark Wonderland

When Imogen (of Chester The Blog) suggested we make the trip down to Bendigo to see the Toni Maticevski exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery, I was stoked. I love road trips, Bendigo and anything as beautiful as the pieces that Toni creates, so it was a match made in heaven.
