I've been meaning to show this dress on the blog all summer, as it's one of my favourites. When I was living in Sydney, I discovered an amazing, shoebox-sized boutique in my neighbourhood called Devela. It was full of high-end designer samples, end-of-the-line items, and vintage pieces, with most of the stock priced under $50!! Heaven! Especially since the shopping scene in Sydney is incredibly expensive compared to North America.
I think I paid about $40 for this Hermès dress. Being a grad student at the time, I couldn't afford to shop much but I'd stop in every two months or so to browse, usually managing to find something special (and light enough to bring home!). The store is also where I got my Gorman sundress and my Chanel top, both of which can be seen in this post. It was great retail therapy when one of my papers was driving me up the wall or just when I was missing B, my family and friends.
I asked B to get a shot of 'the back of my dress'. Now I know he meant well but this photo makes me laugh every time.
I've worn this dress to a couple of summer weddings. Here's a shot of B and me at one of them:
And here's another shot of my handsome fella wearing one of my favourite shirts of his. He hates being in photos so I'm taking advantage of what I've got!
