This Sunday the family ventured for a couple of hours down south to Ferguson Valley. It was my Aunty's birthday at this small, isolated, pretty little winery/restaurant. The food was delicious with a 5 course meal. It's always a great idea that we don't go out to Italian places, as nothing can ever be cooked right if it's just not our homemade Calabrese way. It's such a relief when we go to eat and there are no complaints about the food. Thank you Jesus.
I took the opportunity to take some beautiful photos of my family. Plus I really loved what I was wearing. Funny story about my dress too...

So, I absolutely love this dress...
I found it in a bag that my sister left here when she moved out of home (with quite a few other awesome things might I add.) I put it on in the morning and was wearing my poncho for weather reasons. However I took it off in the car and Penny (my sister who was in our car along with her boyfriend Sven) noticed I was wearing her dress. She kept looking at me, and realised I was actually wearing Sven's mother's dress from about 40 years ago or something ridiculous that she gave to Penny to wear to a bad taste party. Hardly bad taste - I love it! So that was quite hilarious.
Underneath I'm wearing a pink blouse by Wish, tights from somewhere, Alannah Hill bow belt, Tony Bianco wedge booties, and draped over my Mimco bag is my vintage poncho.
