That is such a great compliment! I love the dot lace over dress.

Frannie Pantz said...

I can totally see why he said that because this outfit is hawthorn-a great blend of girly and edgy!

Helga! said...

Totally frickin' scrumptiously frou frou!!! Only YOU could pull off a bridesmaids frock,making the hideous ever so desireable!!!
I bet that barista had to go off and fondle himself after he copped a load of you.I know I do!!!

Love your shoes today! Can't say I've seen them before. So sassy!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

Oh, oh, that outfit is fab.

He needed to change that to "You make me jealous I am not YOU" as not all women are as fabulously stylish as you, my gorgeous.

Ivy Black said...

Dude, you are cuter than a bag of kittens. I found your blog via Shamepuff (who loooove you) and was amazed to discover you are from Brisbane- like me! The internet is a funny little small town sometimes, isn't it? Like Brisbane.

Best reaction ever from the barista! I think you must make everyone jealous that they aren't Desiree on a daily basis. I love this combo - way to go giving that bridesmaid frock new life!

Kitty said...

Wow you're getting heaps of wear out of those Demonias!! Have some doc sorta Mary Janes that might fit you, remind me when I see you next, 'kay??

Melanie said...

Oh that bridesmaids dress is wonderful! I love your new hairband too xxx

Missy Vintage said...

I like this combo, you are so rocking that blazer,which by the way I love! I NEED a blazer like that in my life! x

Forest City Fashionista said...

HA! Such a wonderful thing for him to say!! With those freak-tastic shoes, the most awesome blazer, and a Desiree'd DIY bridesmade frock, I would have to say that I am soooooo jealous I was not there having coffee with you and your supreme spectacular self.

SACRAMENTO said...

Your daring dressing lift my spirit and makes me want to fly, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, my beautiful Desiree.
I wish I could hug you tight.

Lynne DeVenny said...

You make me jealous of all the magical items of clothing that leap out of your closet :) I'm not usually a fan o' the bridesmaid frock, but this one is exquisite, and so are you.

Katie said...

That jacket is perfect. I want to own it so that I may live in it, because I think I would never take it off.

Krista said...

I love when a guy says that to me. I have heard it only a few times in my life and it always fills me with happiness! I love that you cut this dress and paired it with your sexy leggings. You are a goddess!

Love how you lopped off the frock! I love those stripey old blazers - this one is a beauty - Fab outfit! No wonder you make men want to get in on the act!

pastcaring said...

You make me jealous I'm not a woman too... Whoops, forgot, I AM!
I do feel a little envious of your spectacular style though, look at your fabulousness! I think this outfit kind of sums you up, Desiree - flouncy foofy frock, rock chick leggings and gloves, military and animal print, and beautiful flowers. A wee master class in Desiree Style! Gorgeous! xxxxxxx

Your headbands always leave me wishing I could carry that off. SO cute. And it's nice to know someone actually got some wear out of a bridesmaid dress at last!
