With only seven work weeks before Christmas, party season is almost upon us, which means… champagne! But more importantly, outfits! Priorité du jour are the upcoming Melbourne Cup events around town!
Some well-intentioned research led us down the dark rabbit hole of the internet, and now we have our hearts fixated on this gorgeous embroidered tulle Needle and Thread dress. Much to the chagrin of the financier (aka the fiancé), who is more fixated on the NZ$539 price tag.
Needle & Thread, also available online via Asos, is a global “celebration brand”, creating unique pieces to treasure for that memorable moment. And we agree! This looks like an entire collection hand-sewn by woodland nymphs, fed on wildflowers and moonbeams!
Never mind that the pastel hues will make our “fresh-outta-winter” skin look like we have greyscale, and that we’re more than likely to spill pinot all over ourselves as soon as we get anywhere near the drinks table….we’re officially obsessed!
Now, to convince the financier.
P.S. – darling, I think that I may have also found my wedding dress!
Love you, xx afterworky.
