Blog

I don't know who I was kidding with the whole, 'I should start a blog, document outfits, join the blogosphere, it'll be great!'. The blogosphere IS great, I just happened to forget the fact that I have a full-time job (and one that usually sees me doing more than just your standard day), a boyfriend, ebay stuff, and you know....all the rest of it.

Okay, moaning aside, these are a couple outfits that Stuart took photos of me in but that I never got around to putting up. I also need to do a wishlist-type blog, or one on inspirational pics. Hmmm...



Worn to a pub/restaurant/micro brewery by the ocean; Little Creatures
(ignore the face, it was late in the evening!)


Shame I only remembered to take the photos after we'd come back home!


An afternoon op-shopping in Guildford, followed by
old-fashioned English-style tea and scones :)

sheer men's tee, cotton on. bandage skirt, cotton on. blazer, cue. suede studded boots, vintage.
sleeveless hoodie, random. skinny jeans, supre. suede backpack, vintage. boots, vintage via ebay. cuff, equip.

Edit: Awkwardly enough, I love buying my jeans at Supre (a F21-type shop here in Australia) not because they are cheap, but because they do their leg widths skinny enough to fit my hockey stick legs! I've tried more famous and 'good' brands, with no success....skinny jeans just don't fit me. On the other hand, Supre jeans are the perfect length, and have a fabulous fit. And they often cost

Yo ho ho and a bottle, or four, of rum....

A while back, one of our friends had a second house-warming/welcome party for his two new housemates and brother's friend. And decided it should be a rum party. Have you tried to do a rum shot? Ick is what I'll leave it at.

Anyway, I was quite psyched to wear this feather headband I had just made (yup, I've become a DIY fiend) and pair it with a pair of lame leggings I had also just bought on ebay. Haha, I laugh in the face of American Apparel retail and shipping costs to Australia, and choose to buy mine off ebay. All for $14 including international postage.

It was a relatively quiet event. For a rum party anyway. But great fun, with all the close friends one could want....

The headband was also worn to coffee, love it to bits!

Who are you?

The title is in lieu of my 'abandoning' of the blog. To be fair though, I have been so busy with:
a) my full-time job (ahh yes, unfortunately, I have one of 'those');
b) running the ebay store; and
c) life in general,
that I haven't managed to do any blogging. But I have been avidly reading other blogs, don't you worry about that!

In other news, a little while back I got fed up trying to look for rings that span multiple fingers. It got to a point where I decided I'd just DIY one. So I did. The result is as follows:

Yeees, it's a little ghetto but short of owning a welding device this will have to do until Diva/Equip/Sportsgirl/Artsy/Eclectic/Ebay store results in a more 'manufactured' one.

I also visited an annual Perth attraction a little while back; the Perth Annual Royal Show. Or atleast that's what I think its called. It's a full on fair with stalls selling crap, animal/cake/other competitions, showbags, shows, rides, etcetera, etcetera. The show usually attracts a ridiculous number of teenagers and young families but the boy and I thought we would check it out and see what all the teenage-hype was about.

This is us, doing show-y things and trying not to spend our hard-earned money on anything and/or everything:
