This was the closest I’ve ever come to losing an extremity.
Said extremity being my toes. Although many questionable things have been done for the sake of ‘The Blog’, voluntarily sitting on top of a boulder off the coast of New Zealand in a summer dress while it was -2 degrees Celsius probably tops the list. Safe to say these photos were taken in ten minutes flat, before I (very, very quickly) ran back to the safety of my down parka and ugg boots.
I’ve already shot this dress once before for the blog with a very different feel – think gumboots, flower crown and a country setting (you can take a look here), but it just didn’t quite seem to do this Alice McCall creation complete justice in my mind. Hence, a re-visit. Plus it seemed to be the only logical thing you’d wear perched atop something as stunning as the Moeraki Boulders – almost perfectly spherical, they look so incredibly bizarre scattered amongst the sand. However, funnily enough, although this dress seems wildly appropriate for spherical boulders, I’m still yet to actually wear out to an actual, real life event. I think I’ll have to make that my next mission, to stop forcing it to be my outfit of choice in my more unusual blog posts and actually just treat it to a nice night out on the town.
I’ll keep you posted!
