Ferngully Fairy… Part One

Hello everyone, and happy Friday!

I’m increasingly frightened by how fast this year has been passing us by.. eek! Anyone have any tips to slow down time? Even just a little?!

As I’m sure you know by now, I’m all about the slow life! Slow living, slow eating and of course the slow fashion movement! This has been quite a journey for me, as you have to reset your whole approach and mindset when it comes to consuming.

To slow down my weekend, I recently spent some time at the beautiful Mt Coot-Tha Botanical Gardens with my brother to soak up some natural vibes 🙂

I wore my gorgeous Chip The Teacup dress… which really stood out and I certainly got a few looks!

If you haven’t heard of Chip The Teacup, you can check out their gorgeous unicorn and mermaid worthy attire HERE. They are also on Facebook and (my personal fave) Instagram.

CTT love the slow fashion movement just as much as I do, with each piece lovingly handmade to last in beautiful Lennox Head, NSW. The quality is exactly what you would expect from something locally made with love, with the sizing definitely being a true fit and flattering!

Full outfit details will be included at the bottom of this post 🙂

P.S. Although I may receive some items as gifts from my local fairy friends, I never endorse anything that I don’t truly adore!

I recently had the pleasure of helping out my pal Millie Tang with a lovely photoshoot she dreamed up, inspired by an exceedingly sweet house in Paddington.

She brought along an array of quirky and colourful outfits from local vintage & up-cycle queens, Ra Ra Superstar. All Ra Ra designs are made from recycled or vintage fabrics, and who doesn’t love sustainable fashion?? Buttheads, that’s who!

With the help of Megan Farquharson for hair and makeup, I was transported back in time in this ethereal series of dreamy photographs.
