Edelweiss

hell bunny dress

These past couple of weeks have been kind of a blur.  I had planned to have a new Friday Favorites post up yesterday, but I've been working so much that I didn't have the time or energy to finish it.  I'll have a good one up next week, I promise.  I did manage to snap these photos earlier this week, though.  There was one day where the weather was unseasonably warm -- so much so that I didn't even need a coat! -- and I thought I'd grab the opportunity to wear my new Hell Bunny dress.  I'd been eyeing this dress for quite some time, but I couldn't decide on a color (it also comes in green and purple).  It seemed to disappear from Amazon and eBay, but I ended up finding it on the UK Amazon site for very cheap in this blue colorway, so I decided to go for it.  I wish I'd had it in time to do an Oktoberfest post (Novemberfest doesn't have the same ring to it), but I still had to style it with Heidi braids and my pretzel necklace!  (And yes, I know that those things are German and my post title is very much Austrian... but I had to take some creative license here... and make a musical theatre reference.)

As far as life updates: on a positive note, I've been doing pretty well on Weight Watchers this week.  Sometimes when I've tried to go back on it, it's been hard to commit, but I feel much more determined this time.  It's sort of weird how much more I appreciate food when I take the time to account for everything I put in my body.  Food just tastes better, somehow.  And then on a somewhat scary note, my dad was in a pretty bad car accident this week.  He's fine, luckily, but his van was pretty much totaled.  Some guy ran a red light and t-boned right into my dad.  Fortunately, it was on the passenger side (and no one else was in the car).  My road test is in less than 2 weeks, which is sort of ironic timing, since one of the main reasons I avoided driving for so long was because of car accidents.  But my dad is safe, and I know how to keep myself safe while driving, so it's not something that induces fear so much anymore.  So I guess I'm making progress all around!

  1. Love the outfit; the milkmaid braid goes with it perfectly! Good luck on your Weight Watchers journey; you can do it!! I'm glad that your dad is okay! Our family car was also totalled this summer in a bad accident; cars can be replaced, but people can't!!

  4. What a cute dress! I absolutely love this shade of blue on you and the pretzel necklace is perfect with it.
    I'm glad your dad's okay! Car accidents are so scary but there's no use being too scared of something you can't control. You can just be as careful a driver as you possibly can. There'll always be idiots on the road, unfortunately. I'm wishing you good luck on your driver's test!

  8. I'm glad to hear that your dad is okay. Car accidents really freak me out, that's probably one of the reasons why I haven't even gotten my license yet! I love that dress and those heart pockets are too cute!

  11. Oh my word, how fantastically lovely!!! If you sum up all my ancestry, I'm over half German, and though I wasn't raised in the culture and don't speak the language, I've always felt a certain affinity and ingrained pull towards it - very much including Oktoberfest ensembles. You really, really look terrific - and that pretzel necklace is too cute for words!

    *PS* Thank goodness your father is okay. What a nerve wrackingly frightening experience to live through, even if you come out (miraculously) unscathed.

  16. Wow! Your outfit is very nice. It fits you very well. I'm sorry to hear about your father, though. I mean, it's cool that he's on recovery and all, but there should be something more to that incident than what has transpired. Something that can get your family a proper compensation or something. You can check on it. Anyway, all the best!
