Journey's End

Dress - Forever New.

The last time I wore this dress was for my leavers' ball in 2013. I adore this dress but unfortunately it isn't practical to wear often, I'm still waiting for when I have to attend a formal event so I can bust this dress out. I've often thought about wearing it to weddings but sometimes I think it isn't appropriate with it being black and long but I really need to wear it more. I had been planning this shoot for a long time, the idea of being in a ball gown in bare feet running through a forest on a bed of pine needles just seemed so perfect to me and I'm am so happy with how these images turned out. I had a lot of fun shooting this look despite the demon bushes that kept on hooking onto my tail D;;;
I'm usually not one to wear tight fitting garments but since this dress has the chiffon over top it isn't as daunting as you don't see the tight fitting bodice as much. I've always loved the way the tail catches the wind and flows like a cape, makes me feel not only elegant but pretty badass as well. It's strange because I hardly ever shop at Forever New, in fact, this is the only thing I've ever purchased from that store but when I saw this dress all those years ago I fell in love instantly. I'm so glad I finally got to shoot this look because the concept has been in my mind for years.

Forest Nymph

Dress - Country Road. Shoes - Sunto.

In LOVE with this dress. It was a bit of an impromptu/mania fueled purchase but in the end I am thrilled that I bought it. I quite often buy clothes from the children's section and this dress is an example of that. I find that the children's clothes at Country Road are actually not so childish that they can't be worn by an adult, they are still very chic and flattering. The shoes are another purchase I am stoked with. I bought them from Recycle Boutique at The Tannery which if you live in Christchurch should definitely check out because you get good quality, designer pieces at an incredibly reasonably price and sometimes the clothes are brand new! These photos were taken by of course, Cyren from Cyren's Cosmedia and were shot on location at the Botanic Gardens just after we had finished some cosplay photoshoots. I am so happy with how the photos came out and I love the colours in it, I feel just like a forest fairy! So glad I got to share this with you guys n.n
