The Strand Arcade
The Strand Arcade is a little piece of Victorian architecture that lies in the heart of the modern city of Sydney. It was the perfect place to feature this glamorously classic dress. This fine building has survived two depressions, two World Wars and two major fires. Little shopping boutiques and cafes lie here waiting to be explored. Shopping at the Strand Arcade is a different experience. It is not like all the loud, modern and endless shopping malls. It is a quiet and intricate walk with decorated iron balconies and overhanging lights.
It was perfect to showcase this intricately designed dress. I just adore the perfectly deep red colour and the beautiful beading and embroidery on the hem. It was the perfect dress to pair my new headband with. There is something just so pretty and elegant yet crazy and mad about these oversized bunny ears that made them perfect. I just wish they were permanently attached to my head.
