Purple Rose


The lovely Emma from Purpleee Rose held a giveaway a few weeks ago and I must be on some kind of lucky streak, as I won!  I received the cutesy parcel when I came back from Spain, so apologies for the lateness!  It was a vintage giveaway so all the items are unique which is really cool!  In the package was a gorgeous vintage scarf, a velvet maxi dress, some lovely necklaces and a little note for me!  The dress is honestly amazing, it's just insanely annoying that I'm so tall, as it's that little bit too short, grrr. However, I'm thinking of playing around with it a little bit and making it into a short dress, and using the excess material to make a skirt a la Kayla Hadlington!  I haven't been able to take a picture of the dress full length, but if I do change it about, I'll be sure to make a post about it.  On that note, thank you so much to Emma for hosting a giveaway, I'm delighted with my wins.  Now to any readers, make sure you check out Emmas blog here, it's one of my favourite and I strongly recommend following her!
