The city's a flood and our love turns to rust

This cotton tunic dress was from Warren and Vanessa's lovely shop Two Squirrels Vintage in Milton (New Zealand of course!). It's a dress that can be worn either in summer or through winter with a top underneath, or on top...whatever floats your boat. I shortened the dress when we got home from New Zealand and I made a belt with the offcuts. It reminds me of Miss Vanessa, as she wears that tunic style so well. I found the Zierra shoes in a Salvos shop in Thames NZ, they had never been worn and were $3, and I bought the handmade vinyl bag at a recent garage sale.

The sand on this little beach near home is a strange colour with a reddish hue, that's not a camera effect! 

Jellyfish were out in force
