"AHOY" What I Wore at ProBlogger Nautical Theme Night.....

Early last week Ben and I were having a chuckle at  my chosen outfit for the ProBlogger Networking night. The theme was "Ahoy" so a nautical edge was required, but me being me and different, I of course had to go with an abstract interpretation on the theme. My frock of course was vintage and I even got all thrifty with some op shopping and did some upcycling to have the perfect bag to accompany my ensemble.

Ben will happily tell you that he thought that my interpretation of the theme was tenuous at best. But thank goodness for fellow bloggers whether they be vintage loving or not, for appreciating a different take on things. 


Dress: 1970's Diamond Head Sportswear Maxi altered into a Mini made in Hawaii
Fishnets: Retail
Shoes/Boots: Retail on sale from Kmart $9
Clutch - vintage & revamped by me with an op shopped rope and leather belt

This dress was originally a maxi dress and had no hope of being worn in my wardrobe in it's original state, so I opted to have in altered into a mini dress. Much thanks has to go my lovely friend Amy, who took care of all the necessary alterations and had me looking fab on such a fun night out with fellow bloggers from near and far.


It was a fun and fabulous night as was the whole conference and as time was limited to faff about with outfit pics each day, I had Ben snap pics of me at home. Fortunately though on the Friday night event there was an Olympus photo booth which was a load of fun for us bloggers, as you can see above. Check out the Olympus link if you're interested to see what other bloggers were dressed in for the theme night.

I'm glad I didn't talk myself out of the dress in it's original stars as a maxi. I'll now get so much more wear out of it through spring and summer.

Oh yes the sleeves, they're my favourite.
