Striped Maxi Dress

I am in love with this maxi dress! I saw Reebonz had a Suboo sale a few months back and although I'd never heard of Suboo before the prices were cheaper than the sale prices on the Suboo website itself so I thought I'd give this dress a go.

The dress had to be altered as I'm so short, so this is it back from the tailor for it's first outing. Perfect for a relaxing Saturday and dinner with the in laws in the evening.


Dress: Suboo Riviera Nautical Maxi dress from Reebonz
Hat: vintage 1950's sunhat from The Thrifty Kitten $15 sale last week
Necklace:  long black multi chain necklace from Indigo Rose Design
Bracelets: the usual plus fushia jade stone bracelet from Indigo Rose Design
Shoes: Balenciaga sorbet RGGH studded sandals
Bag: Chanel vintage quilted lambskin flap also from Reebonz

I'm not a hat person but I made an exception for this stunning hat - perfect for keeping the sun off my face on a hot sunny day like today. It has the honour of being the only hat I've purchased.

Hope you all had a lovely Saturday :)
