Easterfest Fashion _ Friday _ Flat Lay

Today, I have been at Easterfest, a fabulous family friendly, hipster cool music festival in my own home town. It has been years since we have been, but am thrilled to be an official ‘Easterfest Blogger’ for 2014. I decided that I needed clothes that were: a) cute b) layering friendly c) a bit hippy fresh This is my first outfit… I have to say I LOVE it… colourful, comfortable and a bit quirky with the scarf/shawl thingie…  (I will {Read More}

What I Wore: Vintage Dress & Erstwilder Brooch

Vintage Dress & Brooch FI

My beautiful friend Shelley was turning 40. Shelley is all kinds of fabulous, she is stylish, she is fun, she cooks like a chef and is into lots of the things I am into. We are firm friends who op-shop together and don’t mind at all that our husbands head off to the footy together if we can be stuck together on a couch together somewhere. For her 40th, Shelley was hosting a canapés and champagne party for her inner {Read More}

What I Wore: Folk Dress & Tea Stained Petticoat

Folk Tunic - Together

I am loving the ‘Boho’ look at the moment, I love the natural colours and fabrics. I found this ‘Talisman’ tunic at a thrift store a few weeks ago, it was $6. I loved the colours and the style and thought it was so bohemian. I tried it on and found it to be just a bit shorter than what I would have liked. I found a cute white lace trimmed skirt for $4. The skirt was just too white, {Read More}

How To Tea Stain Clothing

Tea Staining - FI

Whilst op-shopping a week or two back, I found this fabulous ‘Talisman‘ folk tunic. I loved it. I tried it on and realised that it was not actually a dress, but more like a long top. It needed something underneath it. Something like a petticoat…. I popped into the ‘vintage’ section of the thrift store and looked through the racks of old undergarments (this sounds worse than it was, it was mainly petticoats and slips and things) but nothing was {Read More}

Featured Image - Kaftan

I shared a post earlier about ‘How To Turn A Beach Kaftan Into A Sun Dress‘  - well… here are the pictures of ME in the dress! I love it! Now I have realised that I have a bit an issue with colour. I love it, and I crave it… but… I don’t know, I just can’t seem to get it right. This means I tend to go for blacks, whites and greys and add colour in my accessories. Now, {Read More}

Kaftan into Sundress Title

A few weeks ago, I picked up a fabulous kaftan from a thrift store. I was shopping with my mother, who told me in no uncertain terms that I should NOT buy the kaftan as it was, “for the beach.” Well, I looked at this kaftan and decided I had to have it. I loved the colour, I loved the design, I loved the neckline and I loved the shape (or no shape which works well for my over shapely {Read More}

Here are 12 tips for ensuring your clothes last longer than a season… 1. Buy quality – seriously quality items last longer (well, they should) {Read More}

The Panel: Teenagers & Make-Up

Teenagers and Make-Up

So… back in ‘the day’ did you wear make-up to school? I didn’t. It was against the rules. Yes, there were those who wore foundation and eyeliner and lipgloss, ‘we’ considered those girls not very nicely. I once went to school with the traces of [my sister's] eyeliner that I just couldn’t wash off and was frogmarched to the smelly toilets to use soap and water to wash it off by the stereotypical near giant spinster deputy head. The WORST {Read More}

What I Wore: Pineapples & Country Road

Pineapple Shirt

This outfit has been my summer staple: the relaxed fit tee, the drawstring pant and the sandal. It has taken me to casual dinner parties, day trips, everyday kinds of things like swimming lessons, the school run, the doctor’s surgery. It is comfortable, cool, classic – with a side of fun in the shape of a pineapple! I love this kind of outfit because it needs only a couple of key things and the outfit zings. I am talking about {Read More}
