Tie-Waist Denim Dress and The Cornish Kitchen (Feat. Zaful)

The tourists are beginning to swarm Moonta. Summer has just about begun and because it's warm now, 'tis the season for crabbing and fishing. Meanwhile, us "locals" (okay, we've been here only a little over 2 months), continue on with our daily lives. Okay, maybe I'm actually sort of a tourist too. I'm still in the process of discovering what this little town has to offer and food is usually #1 on my priority list.

Someone had previously recommended that we try cornish pasties from The Cornish Kitchen and while we tried one in Kadina, we were pleased to discover THE Cornish Kitchen located in 10/12 Ellen St, Moonta SA 5558. "You have GOT TO try the cornish pasties!" they told us. And try we did. The place was packed and the city girl inside me was so happy to see a ton of people. I could soon tell that a chunk of the crowd were tourists.
The Cornish Kitchen Coffee

The Cornish Kitchen pie, pasty and chips
Here's my quick review of The Cornish Kitchen: The serving was HUGE. We could barely finish the chips that came with the pie and pasty. The coffee foam was lovely although the coffee itself could be better. I ordered a milkshake and wow, it was so large it was practically a meal in itself. Of course we ordered the cornish pasty and while it was good, I must say that my Asian (Filipino-Chinese) palate has come to conclude that cornish pasties really aren't that spectacular in itself. The pastries looked amazing though, we'll definitely go back to try them.
Now, on to the outfit. I finally dove into the faux sleeve tied waist trend and why not? I've always been into this '90s style and the fake sleeves tied around the waist saves you from donning on another garment. This tied-waist round neck bat-wing sleeve denim dress is easy, breezy and trendy. And y'all gotta know by now how much I love easy but fashionable dressing.
High Top Flat Heel Sandals from Zaful HERE
To add to the relaxed summer vibes, I paired this dress with high top gladiator sandals which takes some effort to put on due to the laces but fashion takes effort I guess, and to me, it's worth it.

What do you think about the faux sleeves tied-waist trend?

Always,

  34. I actually really like that color on you! it plays well with our skin tone, and contrasts excellently with your hair. I actually own a similar dress except with blue and white stripes, and I absolutely love it. I think the tie at the waste is really what makes the dress. Excellent post! xx

  35. For some reason, I can relate to your Cornish pastry comment so much. I used to always order one wherever they were available but they’re not really that good, unless my mom makes them & she’s asian so that explains that haha Love your dress btw, so perfect for the Australian summer!

  66. I've never tried a Cornish pastry and I can't say I'm in a rush to do so either. Hahaha. I'm not a fan of pies period so I don't think I'd enjoy it. I would kill those chips though. Anyhoo loving the dress the sleeve detail is super cool, it's making me want to indulge in this trend myself
