Under The Sea

Vintage leather jacket, Princess Polly dress, Lovisa necklace, Rayban Wayfarers

For Mary Katrantzou's Spring/Summer 2012 collection, there was a mixture of colours and prints resembling garden floral landscapes, which were developed to fit into deep underwater aquarium like prints. As soon as I first saw this collection grace the catwalks, I imagined what I thought the Great Barrier Reef would look like as a print on a designer dress and questioned why it hadn't been thought of earlier! But of course, of all people the ingenious Mary Katrantzou introduced it and smashed within the first attempt. Above is a picture of the ever-so-stylish Anna Dello Russo, wearing one of her dresses. 
Ever since this collection, I have been in love with Mary and following her every chaotic move. So you can understand, that when I saw this aquatic print dress at Princess Polly there was no way I wasn't going to buy it. Usually, I am not a fan of cheap knock-offs but I couldn't help myself becoming hypnotised with this placement print, and at only $75!
On another note, lately I have been noticing the new Rayban 'Never Hide' campaigns which are celebrating 75 years of Raybans! How sick, it actually made me realised that I never wear my Wayfarers anymore... (Maybe because they're not prescripted and I'm blind without glasses)
Anywho, I whipped up this outfit today. Seeing as the weather in Sydney is getting slightly sunnier but still SO windy, I felt it was perfect to go from day to night for a cocktail yet still edgy look. Let me know what you think, comments are always welcome!

  1. I am in love with your leather jacket! You are so lucky, I can never seem to find any decent vintage items :(
    The print dress is amazing - it does bear some resemblance to the Mary Katrantzou dress, but it's still quite different at the same time
    Haha I'm blind without my glasses as well
    Don't you wish that more designer brands made prescribed sunglasses? It would make my life so much easier

  2. I love all these pieces :)

  3. Love Mary and love that dress. And i feel the same way about knock-offs, but i totally understand why you got that dress! At least it's not a counterfeit! and that jacket is perfect!
