Porcelain dream

I have this idea of my perfect bedroom. The walls would be an eggshell colour with lime washed floorboards, quirky antique furniture and vintage linen. And scattered around the room would be sweet little porcelain figures in all manner of pastel shades.

Dress it Up

As I put together my very first all-things-wedding post over at That Unreliable Girl, I began to realise how much amazing fashion is available on Etsy. Obviously, I'm a little slow. So despite the cooler months approaching, I'm going to share three of my favourite Etsy designers (all Portland ladies, by some odd coincidence!) and some of the best dresses they have to offer.

The first designer is Makool, who has a way with chiffon and silk that I can't help but love! My absolute favourite dress is the 'Gold Spalding' dress, above, that's made from cotton jersey, vintage lace, feathers and touches of silk. Heaven!

The 'Grey Sparrow' dress is a close second, with silk and chiffon in grey, beige and plum. The details are so soft and perfect, and the colours work beautifully together.

The 'Bleu Rosy Finch' dress is another silk and chiffon number complete with an adorable bubble hem and the ability to customise the colours to your hearts desire! Makool suggests that this would make a perfect bridesmaids dress, and I tend to agree. And if all that wasn't enough, she also has a gorgeous blog!

Next up is Sarah Seven, whose 'A Peaceful Afternoon' and 'White As Snow' dresses has been getting plenty of very deserved blog attention!

I also adore the 'Pink Petals' and 'Powdered Sugar' dresses, the former in light pink chiffon and the latter in white organza with a recycled silver bead waist.

I left this 'Lemon Drop' dress out of my wedding post, but I still absolutely love it. The good news about all these dresses is that coming into winter, they'd all would look great with a leather jacket, tights and boots. And better still, 5% of all purchases go to charity!

Last but not least is Emily Ryan, whose designs with cotton and jersey are structural, origami-inspired artworks. The 'Spiral Pleats' dress is possibly one of her more well known designs, and for good reason!

The 'Honeycomb' dress is another pleated masterpiece that would be just as perfect in the workplace as it would for the most stylish of events.

The soft jersey folds on the 'Gathered Front' dress make this my personal favourite, simply because it looks so comfortable and effortlessly stylish. This is yet another dress that would be just as perfect in spring with a cute pair of heels as it would be in the dead of winter (well, Sydney winter) with a jacket/coat, tights and boots, or maybe even some cute patent heels a la Gossip Girl ( or flats for that matter, or ICE SKATES!) Bring on winter!
