New Dress!!!

I just bought this dress of etsy. It was just so beautiful that I couldn't pass it without getting it there and then. I love all the detailing and the bright colour.

Yesterday was my 24th birthday so I took the today off from work and to celebrate my boyfriend and I went and had high tea at The Duxton Hotel in Perth. It was very special because there was only us in the restaurant area but they had the most fantastic food for us to eat and by the end of it we where fully stuffed with food. On the walk back to the car we stopped in for a drink at a very small bar whisky bar (very hidden bar) called Helvetica before going home. We dressed up for the occasion and got some very funny looks from the office workers on there way home (I think some of them thought that we where a little odd or that we where guest going to a wedding) but I just had to take my new hat out for a spin.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to Fremantle for a nice relaxing afternoon at the pub (his choice) and lots of cool vintage shops (my choice) to find myself a nice pre-birthday present for my self and to get some dutch breakfast cake (its a tradition to have one at my birthday). I got myself a 50's souvenir scarf from Edinburgh to add to my collection and an 80's dress (that needs a little adjusting to fit better) with a pattern of little red birds on a black background.
