Opera Dress


I think there are certain posts as a blogger that you love more than others. This is definitely one of those posts for me, and as I looked at them on our camera whilst shooting, I was almost jumping for joy with the prospective excitement of the post that is yet to come. Not that taking photos in such an iconic place such as the Sydney Opera House should be difficult, especially in a dress like this. But sometimes it all comes together; the outfit, the location, the lighting, that makes this certain post extra special.

Lisa Taranto ‘Bianca Tea’ Dress (also available at Urban Jin), Witchery ‘Louisa High’ Heels, Michael Kors Sport Watch (love this one too!)

    Love the shots as always. Perfect pair with the nude heels too. Gotta let the dress speak out loud! With the appropriate weather, I’m imagining an awesome fur coat to go with it.
