racing through the city, windows down..

DSC06568 DSC06569 DSC06570 DSC06565 DSC06566 DSC06564 here is the dress i had half-finished on my saturday post..when i came home from the cake stall i was running on saturday, i spent most of the evening putting the finishing touches to this in order that i could wear it on sunday to my mum's birthday gathering..i literally finished it with about 5 minutes to spare ( i definitely work better under pressure!), but made it to the party on time nonetheless, after adding a shrug to it, and a pair of pretty irregular choice heels which i forgot to take a photo of! thankfully she had a lovely birthday.. dress : handmade // shrug : h&m
