Flower Child

Dear friends, can I just start off by saying that I love you all? Somedays I get seriously overwhelmed by the kindness of all of you! Your comments make my day, everyday, and emails of encouragement, asking for advice, or just little messages of 'hi kate!' seriously bless my socks off. So thankyou for reading Postcards From and for being so kind to me! Love you all heaps and heaps!


Oh my goodness, I have been so excited to do this post ever since I got a hold of this little number! This amazing dress was sent to me by the darlings over at The Hanging Space - and I have been dying to share it with you! As soon as I saw this dress on the website I thought "Its such a Kate dress! I need to have it!" and a few days later a lovely package arrived with this very dress inside, needless to say I was smitten and still am! The Hanging Space is such an amazing online shop because it promotes Australian designers and gets their name out there and it has everything you would ever want (no joke!) With patterns of floral, neutral, frills, animal print, lace, stripes, you name it! And not only do they sell modern clothing, they have an incredible vintage section full of sweet goodies also! This shop has become a favorite of mine and I know you will love it too, head over to their website and sift through the lovely peices.




Alright, I havent done a book review in a while on here but I thought its about time since I am reading this incredible book right now. Its called "Gods Callgirl" - and its an amazing real story of one womans journey through becoming a catholic and nun at the age of 17, her journey through working at the convent and thinking its a cult, leaving the convent and becoming a prostitute. It seriously has taken up hours of my time the last few nights, where I get to the point of it being after midnight but I just cannot put this book down. So if you are looking for an interesting and heart gripping story, check out this book at your local book store - honestly, you will digg it!

Hope you're all having a fantastic week! Im off now to make key lime pie for my sweet boyfriend - have a great night buttercups! x
