"Dreams are neccessary to life."  
- Anais Nin

To ring in a melodious new year, I greet you all with a medley of test shots, the recent offsprings of my new camera! Sadly, no rose-hued Dior baby bottles bask in sight (by the way, these little decadent gems do indeed exist... they just happen to be sunbathing on the exotic island of this item is no longer available online).

Naturally, the first task of my weekend has me equipped with my couture candy Canon, braving into the realm of eagle-eying neighbors and gardeners, determined to consume the appetizing flash of the camera and devour a cauldron of attempted modelesque stances. With my mom appointed the sole duty of photographer, I was able to brew my first official outfit post of 2012!

Of course, with the silverscreen birth of a cherished ensemble of mine, comes the accompanying renovation of the wonderland. Meet the new blog layout, an euphoric confection lacquered in a longtime fancy of fantasy and vintage. Look at what a dainty little jaunt to the spa can do!
And if your heart still slumbers on catwalks of Chanel and runways of Rodarte, you can satisfy your lustings for leopard print with a pair of leopard-splashed pumps or even a cozy leopard pull-over!

Also, a sequined shout-out and thank-you to Alexa of A Life in the Fashion Lane for the Elizabeth & James tee! Make sure to drop by her blog and check her out as well!

Hope you have enjoyed my first outfit post of the year, thanks for reading!
What are you looking forward to in the new year?

thanks for the comment! i did have a lovely birthday thankyou. yes the shopping is great here! (depending on where you live) It's useually better when you go to a city to shop compared to a town where i live. Primark is extremely cheap however the quality of the clothing isn't as good as New Look.
Thanks for following, i really appreciate it :)

you have a lovely blog:)
