 Vintage lace top and gloves,Temt skirt, Lovisa birdcage veil, Australis red lipstick in 'Cha Cha'

No, I'm not getting married (Ryan Gosling, where are you?!), but I simply couldn't leave this beautiful veil behind when I went shopping yesterday at Lovisa. It was only three dollars and I've been wanting one for so long. It's so beautiful and vintage-y and I just feel like a character from Gatsby or Downton Abbey wearing it! I also got a little request the other day to do a kinda 'bridal' themed shoot. I've never done pictures like this before so I was pretty excited about it. I think the red lipstick really adds the perfect touch. It was a lot of fun to put together for you guys so I hope you like the pictures!
How is your weekend going? Yesterday Ruby and I went to a little tea house after I finished work and then after that I went shopping for a new set of summer pyjamas (seen here!) because the weather has been ridiculously hot lately and it's no fun trying to sleep in the heat. I can't believe Summer and Christmas are just around the corner (only a few months away!). This year has gone terribly fast and I'm not sure if I want it to end just yet. 
Hope you're having a magical day! xo
P.S: This week is THE week of exams and assessment. Wish me luck, yikes!

The veiled hat is sooo classy and lady-like! I love it. Very sophisticated, quite a fashion statement. Anyway, am I the only girl who doesn't find Ryan Gosling attractive? Ahah! x
