1950's inspired sundress + new camera!


 Tulio sundress, Kmart sandals, Rubi bag, Lovisa earrings, headband and necklace, Revlon lipbutter in 'Raspberry Pie'

So.... as you may have noticed from the lovely, clear clarity of these pictures (as well as the gorgeous bokeh!!) I now have a wonderful Canon camera! I honestly feel like I have been saving forever. I'm so happy and excited though as all of my hard work has paid off. I feel so proud to have saved and met my goal and it's all so worth it. My new camera will come with me on all of my adventures overseas and help to capture memories beautifully in a way my own mind may not be able to. I have had a few questions as to what sort it is: Canon 1100d with a 18-55mm lens. 

Honestly, if you are a beginner I would highly recommend this camera. The price is wonderful (It can range from $420+), it's relatively easy to become familiar with and the photos are simply beautiful. :)
Anyway, I really couldn't wait to photograph this dress! It was a lucky find when I was shopping the other day. I've been looking everywhere for a cotton sun dress for Summer and this one was only twenty dollars! 
I hope you all are having an amazing holiday season! My holidays are disappearing right before my eyes and it's freaking me out. I only have three more weeks to go. Eep!

P.S: I also made a short OOTD video whilst taking the above pictures. It's incredibly shaky so I apologise for that. My sister (aka chief photographer) is still quite a rookie when it comes to shooting movies!

Lovely photographs! I've been thinking of getting a canon 600d, they are around £400 on ebay/amazon, as my nikon seems like its starting to die on me sadly! Im trying to put a bit away for one. The feeling of achieving something yourself is satisfying so well done to getting it yourself! The dress is stunning and please do keep up the videos. I enjoy outfit post videos :)

I love the colours on your dress, it's beautiful! Your little bag is adorable and I wish the brand Rubi was sold here in the UK. Seriously cute outfit!
